On November 10th, I had the honor of attending an inspiring event held in collaboration with Clean & Clear. The campaign was “See the Real me” that aims at empowering young women in the Arab World to follow their dreams and be true to themselves. The event was held at the Pure Sky Lounge at the Hilton, JBR, The Walk. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast with an amazing view & weather while watching videos of four established young Arab women: Fashion blogger, Nadya Hassan (UAE) Pianist, Nadia Dandachi (KSA) Make-up artist & Comedian, Aya Mostafa (Egypt) & Hip-hop artist, Lynn Fattouh a.k.a Malika (Lebanon). They talked about how they went about pursuing their dreams, the difficulties they overcame, the criticism they receive & how they deal with it.
Their stories were a great inspiration to all of us present there who are in our own different paths aiming to succeed in achieving our goals and dreams. The biggest nugget of knowledge I took from this event is that when no one else believes in your dreams, it’s YOU who needs to believe in them and in yourself.
Here are a few pictures from the event:
