Today, the UAE marks the seventh annual Emirati Women’s Day.
As an occasion to empower Emirati women, the day was launched by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Al Ketbi, the wife of the late Sheikh Zayed and Mother of the Nation, in 2015.
“Emirati women have proven there is no task that is impossible due to their hard work and innovation,” Sheikha Fatima has previously said.
An individual who exemplifies this is artist, designer and educator Sarah Alagroobi.
Highlighting her education, knowledge and privilege, Alagroobi is an individual offering insight and igniting new conversations in the region.
“I don’t really view myself as a person who is breaking down stereotypes,” she explains. “I think I have been blessed to be given the privileges and the knowledge, understanding and education to be able to provide a counter-narrative to the existing narrative in the UAE’s landscape.”
