What do you do and how did you get to where you are today? What drove you to success? 

A Special Needs Activist to the core, a sister of an amazing adult with autism and a mom of an inspiring young girl. I am the proud Founder and Director of Kalimati Communication and Rehabilitation Center in Dubai. I started Kalimati, which means my words in Arabic, 8 years ago when I was searching for the right environment to support my sister and daughter. They continue to inspire me everyday, they inspire me to give, to support other families and to never give up. They are the reason to Kalimati 's success. 

What brings you joy?

Love, care and achievements bring me happiness. The love and care I get from my family and my Kalimati family continue to give me the joy that I need. The amazing families that come to Kalimati give me support. The smiles I get from our special children brighten my day.

What would you tell a young graduate today? 

Innovate and create. We come from a young country that supports the youth. Create your own personal identity and support your community. We are privileged to live in a country that inspires us with developments and Innovate concepts.

Why is UAE a great place for women to succeed?

Having HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak as our mother of our nation brings greatness to all women in the UAE. Having women ministers, women presidents and members in the Parliament, CEOs and all other roles prove that we have a strong platform that supports women.
