Noor Bin Eidan

This year marks the 60th Kuwaiti National Day. What makes you proud to be from Kuwait?

Being a Kuwaiti female citizen is like being a double edge sword as I hold eternal love for this country. However, if it wasn’t for my consistent effort and endeavour, it would have been almost impossible to become the person I am today.

In just 60 years so much has happened in the country. What, to you, stands out as Kuwait’s biggest achievement?

Coping up with the traditions and what is thought of as restricted in our culture has probably made many women give up. It takes courage and audacity to stand up for your rights in a country like Kuwait. However, not only me, in fact, I’ve witnessed many enlightening Kuwaiti women outdone themselves to prove the true power they hold within.

What are your hopes for the future of the country?

I’ve spent most of my life here and apparently this is the only place my soul finds peace. I believe back then we’ve all had to sacrifice to become who we are today especially our ancestors. I am proud of the milestones we’ve been achieving as Kuwaitis and I hope we’d give better chances to our Kuwaiti women, who are pretty much proving their astounding capability in almost all fields by empowering them and also granting them equal rights.

This year marks the 60th Kuwaiti National Day. What makes you proud to be from Kuwait?

On a personal level, I’m proud to be Kuwaiti, as well as having participated in international fashion shows in New York, Paris, and London. The Kuwaiti ambassadors were keen to attend my shows. Kuwait TV and the Kuwait News Agency KUNA were keen to cover my participation.

In just 60 years so much has happened in the country. What, to you, stands out as Kuwait’s biggest achievement?

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Kuwait has carried out the largest evacuation operation in the history of Kuwait. It managed to return all of its citizens and students from abroad safely back to the country in a very short period of time.

What are your hopes for the future of the country?

I’m truly proud to be a Kuwaiti national, as Kuwait is the mother of three major symbolisms which epitomise it as the country of humanity, the country of good and the country of peace with a hope that it continues to embody these values.
