Mrs. Hamsa Saleh Al Ammari, AAW Director, said: “Emirati Women’s Day is a great example of the attention and appreciation that Emirati women get from our beloved rulers and country. We have many wonderful role models of successful Emirati women. Each one gives us the will to achieve more and to give more to this nation. In return, we must all pay back this blessed country as role models to the new generation.”
“On this day I congratulate H.H. Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Al Nahyan, the symbol of giving and good deeds, because Her Highness believes in Emirati women’s potential and encourages us by providing all needed support to fulfill goals and dreams. I call upon our students to work really hard to set an example for the next generation by passing on the torch of success to cherish the legacy of Emirati women,” Mrs. Hamsa added.
