Dr Mariam Said that she also wish to extend her warmest congratulations to all the remarkable women across the UAE.
Each year, the UAE marks the 28th of August as a day to honour and celebrate the women of this beloved nation. Today, we celebrate and recognise every woman’s achievement and her role in helping build our country, across various fields, from science, to education, to healthcare and of course, diplomacy.The women of the UAE are a true example of grace, patience, cooperation and a driven passion for great achievements. These qualities are without a doubt the key pillars for any successful, modern society.
The wise and visionary Founding Father of the UAE, once said: “I am waiting for the day when I see a female doctor, female engineer and female diplomat.”
Owing to the unwavering support of the UAE’s wise leadership for women empowerment, Emirati women have proven to be a key pillar in our nation’s flourishing and rapid development. The women of the UAE assumed various crucial roles in our society, including, the roles of engineers, doctors, and diplomats; which raise the country’s status and enhance its global presence.
