SHARJAH: Sajaya Young Ladies of Sharjah, the best destination for young girls to discover and empower their talent, organised a spring programme entitled “Talent Carnival”, from Mar.26 to Apr.6, that witnessed more than 400 girls from various cities of Sharjah including Dhaid, Mleiha, Al Madam, Kalba, and Khor Fakkan.

The spring programme, which targeted girls aged between 12 and 18 years old, included various workshops, trips and adventures. The programme also focuses on enhancing girls’ experiences, developing their capabilities and talent, and investing in their leisure time.

The Gulf Today tapped the participants’ feedback on the outcome of the spring programme. Most of the participants expressed having fun during the programme, especially that it came at the right time, after their school exams.

Theatre was a big concern for Mariam Adel Al Muhairi, 15, and Rabab Yousif, 16, both members of Sajaya with a passion for the field. Rabab has been a Sajaya member for a year. Mariam expressed her love for theatre saying, “I have been thinking of new ideas for it, and my vision in life has become brighter.”

Rabab mentioned that she learnt many skills at the workshops, but theatre was her focus of interest: “I found myself in theatre where I can be creative and express my feelings.”

Volunteer work was another issue of interest for some participants. Asma Ali Al Mazmi, 17, who joined the spring programme for the first time, mentioned, “We enjoyed going to visit sick kids at Al Qasimi hospital, where we wrote letters for them and offered them some toys that we made for them at the workshops.”

Huda Ibrahim Al Hammadi, 16, who participated for the first time in a Sajaya programme, said, “I have been more self-confident and developed my communication skills with the community through this programme.” She expressed that she enjoyed the fun day, and loved volunteer work with the team.

Amani Saeed Al Za’abi, 13, a member at Sajaya, remarked, “I appreciate the role of Sajaya in enhancing and empowering our talent and experience, and I wish to participate again in other programmes, especially programmes related to art where I found myself.”

Sibeeha Mohammed, 12, from Dhaid who participated for the maiden time in a Sajaya programme, said, “I loved the art workshops where our teacher Mrs Mariam, was so kind and let us fall in love with art, drawing on water, and sculpture,” she said.
