The United Arab Emirates has achieved more in 50 years than many countries have achieved in a lifetime, and there is no one prouder of their country’s achievements than those who are from the UAE.

To mark the UAE’s Golden Jubilee, sisters Sara and Noor Tamimi discussed with Emirates Woman what it was like growing up here and the vast change they have seen throughout the years.

“Every week something is different and new in our country,” Noor, a serial entrepreneur and founder of Bedashing Beauty, notes. “I believe it could maybe be overwhelming for other nations but not for us. We’re used to that and we expect that.”

As for the 50-year milestone, Emirati fashion designer Sara, founder of Sara Tamimi the label, highlights just how far women have come as mothers, entrepreneurs and wives, to which Noor added that equality between genders “has been there for a while”.

As we celebrate the UAE’s Golden Jubilee, watch our full interview with Sara & Noor below.
