The start of a new year has begun, which means for most of us we’re thinking of ways to add new healthy, fulfilling habits into our lives and set clear intentions and goals for the year ahead.

Should that be a fresh approach to self-care, ticking something off the bucket list or starting a business, trust that as you set your own intentions for new year ahead, the sky is the limit and the time is truly now.

We speak to five successful and empowered women who share their insightful and inspiring Affirmations and intentions with Emirates Women for 2023 and beyond.

Dr. Barbara Sturm, Founder and CEO of Dr Barbara Sturm

Dr. Barbara Sturm

As a doctor, I am constantly working with leading scientists worldwide to develop new ways to improve health and longevity on all levels – not just for the skin but also for the body.

This reflects on my work at Sturm in the wellness therapies offered at our spas and the educational content we share on our social platforms – but it also means we’re able to develop the most cutting-edge, scientific treatments for our patients.

In 2023, we will share some of these new and exciting innovations, and more will come from our professional-grade skincare line, EXOSO-METIC END LEVEL, too – watch this space.

Nora Al Ramadhan, Co-Founder & CEO, Apotheca Beauty

Nora Al Ramadan

In 2023 I’m excited about traveling to Brazil and exploring more of South America. I am determined to start Spanish lessons this year; my mother is Hispanic American, and I have always wanted to learn the language.

I’m also excited for us to open our facial room at Apotheca Beauty in Nakheel Mall, rolling out a comprehensive menu of services across an array of brands, including Omorovicza, Dr.Barbara Sturm, Tatcha, Dr.Lancer, and more.

Wdeema Almheiri, Beauty Entrepreneur, Co-founder of The Beauty Society

Wdeema Almheiri

One of my goals for The Beauty Society is to expand our team to include even more talented women. Overall, feeling content is a personal goal that I would like to aim for next year, regardless of the circumstances I face. I have set a certain vision of myself that I would like to live up to within the next year. I am incredibly proud of myself and thankful for all the opportunities I have received.

Fay Ezzat, Content Creator and Designer

Fay Ezzat

I’m working towards a few goals set for 2023, where I aim to grow my clothing brand Ezzat by expanding the team and focusing more on becoming an entrepreneur, aside from staying a designer.

I aim to continue my A-game in content creation on Instagram to keep growing my audience. To get to the next level in fashion, I also wish to travel to Asian countries to get inspired by their art, architecture, fashion, and fabric sourcing. In the upcoming year, I’m confident in the first drop of my label Ezzat and getting ready for the second drop or perhaps a capsule collection.

I also run Fay’s Closet, a pre-owned clothing store, I’m proud of how far it has come, offering comfort to statement pieces handpicked from around the world. With Ezzat and my many plans for 2023, I’m looking forward to the upcoming year and can’t wait to drop my new collection and grow the brand.

Amna Banhihasem, Equestrian Show jumper and Philanthropist

Amna Banihihasem

I’m excited for a lot of things in 2023. One of my new year’s resolutions is to focus and invest more time in my entrepreneurial journey. I also look forward to gaining specialized skills and knowledge by pursuing a master’s degree. I would also like to stick to and develop healthier eating habits.
