Why is supporting women important to you?

Women bring life, they carry empathy and intuition which helps foster growth in family, society, and this universe. If I did not support that, I would probably be living in a world where I could not vote, not take leadership positions, and possibly not be here today in Miss Universe 2023. After all, I am a woman too.

Why is supporting women important to you?

Women have come a long way and there are still obstacles. The power of women supporting women is what has laid the foundation for all the progress we’ve made for women’s rights throughout the years. For me personally, being a woman in Bahrain, I find it important to showcase the fact that Arab women aren’t oppressed and have the capability to hold their own within the culture. Being in Miss Universe Bahrain, the organization alone is a symbol of Bahraini women empowerment and I hope throughout my journey competing, I can help address and dispel many misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding women in the Middle East.

Why is supporting women important to you?

I was raised by and I am surrounded by empowered women who support one another and I know how powerful it is. It's not about saying one gender is better than the other, it's acknowledging a woman's capabilities shouldn't be put in a box. Women deserve to take up space and leave a mark in this world as well, in whatever way we choose to do. Whether it's by building a family or a career or both, we have much to contribute to the world. Supporting women is not just the right thing to do, it is truthfully the smart thing to do.

As women we need to use our voices to advocate for change and speak up for ourselves, when we support each other we create a positivity that can have a profound impact in the world. We have the power to make changes and for generations to come, I also truly believe that, the more you give, the more you receive. Kindness doesn’t cost.

Why is supporting women important to you?

Because I am a woman myself, it’s empowering to have another woman’s back. We women have a gift of nurturing lives and we are also capable of running big companies with the highest positions. Sadly we are still striving for basics like education, proper sanitary services and more personal issues like body shaming, being the ‘PERFECT WOMAN’ and we all need to come together as women and have each other’s back and take each other forward.
