In honour of the 44th UAE National Day, we speak to 44 inspiring women, living in the region, about what they love about the region. 

It’s hard to believe it was a mere 44 years ago that our country’s founding fathers hoisted the UAE flag for the first time. With Spirit of the Union as the official theme for the UAE’s 44th National Day celebrations on December 2, Emirates Woman gets into the commemorative spirit by asking 44 inspiring residents what they love most about living in the UAE. Prepare to feel all warm and fuzzy inside… also, please feel free to share your thoughts.

Happy National Day!
