Her eagerness to interact with the various trends around her bring out her creativity in full. Woman in general and the Emirati woman in particular has succeeded in expressing herself and proving her creative abilities, even in the case of those confined to the home and the family, let alone those who excelled in different walks of life."
In a speech delivered at the gathering, Hessa Tahlak, Director of Research and Development at Dubai Women Establishment, said that the woman of the UAE truly deserved the confidence deposed in her by the wise leadership. "She has proved her relevance at work and succeeded in occupying leadership positions in public and private organizations. She runs businesses and projects," she added.
