The HCT-Ras Al Khaimah Women’s College (RKWC) participated in the first annual Emirates NBD e7 Banat al Emirate – Daughters of the Emirates – Summit in Dubai, from April 9-11 where they made up 35 young women from each of the UAE’s seven Emirates who interacted during a lively dialogue of leading community and government leaders.
Mahra Abdulla Al Shehhi, Engineering student, said:“This summit was a totally new experience and inspired me to make the ideas more creative and attractive. Finally, I would like to thank everyone who makes this summit happen… And inshallah we will do our best for the project.”
Aaesha Rashed Al Dahmani, an RKWC Business student, said: “During the three days I learned and enhanced my skills, for example dealing and interact with many people from many different cultures. Not only that, because I’m a Business student, I sharpened many important skills for ‘businesses’, such as time management, leadership, team work, decision making, problem solving and brain storming.”
Another Business student, Shaikha Naser Al Zaabi said: “The e7 was a unique experience and very different from what I was going to; it was multicultural society and full of creative ideas and thoughts. The whole activities were unusual and it had a lot of brain storming, critical thinking and cooperating with others from different emirates and from different cultures.”
Noora Khamis Al Breiki, an Education student, added: “The e7 Summit provided for me the opportunity to work with multicultural people through a variety of sessions of education, business and art, and we trained on how to do a community project. Also, we had the session with community’s leader who has done their project, and they shared with us their experience and how they have been through it. Currently, I’m working on my community project and I’m looking forward to seeing it comes true.”
