If you were a decision-maker, what legislation do you think Emirati women need today for more empowerment - in general, and in the field of air work in particular?

In my opinion, Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak and all the leaders in the UAE made sure to put all the necessary legislations. They made empowering women their cause in the previous years and will continue in the years ahead.

Women today need more knowledge and awareness about legislation. In the field of air work, we need greater empowerment for women, as the percentage of women is still low compared to men due to the lack of appropriate support and awareness.

What would you say to young Emirati women who are considering an experience similar to yours?

Be different, be passionate, believe in yourself and your dream, and that you will have your lifetime experience.
