Sheikha Fatima that highlights her qualities and her leading role in the unique achievements of the UAE’s renaissance, in light of her traditional principles, leadership qualities, wisdom and belief in the importance of determination to overcoming major challenges.
The book also mentions Sheikha Fatima has worked, since the formation of the country, on realising the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to empower women and reinforce their role in the country’s development, as well as her significant efforts to establish a new era for Emirati women.
The book affirms Sheikha Fatima’s inspiring personality, her distinguished administrative capacities and her determination to achieve goals that enabled her to accomplish major transformations in the process of national development, by investing in the capacities of Emirati women.
The book addresses Sheikha Fatima’s humanitarian initiatives and her contributions to the country’s successes and global reputation, noting she has become an international icon of everything noble, in light of her ongoing humanitarian giving that reached the entire world.
