The first figure skater from the United Arab Emirates to compete internationally

•My 2019 highlight was competing at the Winter Universiade in Russia. I made history by being the first to represent the UAE at this competition. Another highlight was adding more coaches to my training team to help me reach my goals. I had a great opportunity to train over the summer with world-renowned coach Rafael Arutyunyan.

•The UAE is very special to me because it’s my home. I do what I can to raise the UAE flag all over the world. 

•I make sure to use a reusable metal water bottle, instead of plastic ones. I always turn off lights and electricity switches when not in use. Of course, I use recycle bins when available and I re-use paper.

•Next year I’m looking forward to doing more competitions and getting better results.
