Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi underlined the need to harness science and technology in the field of beauty and health. It was also necessary to ensure that responsible behaviour and sustainable practices were followed to safeguard the health of women.

Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi said, “We aspire women in the UAE society to be an example in all aspects of life, being role models for children at home, for their colleagues at the workplace, and for the younger generation of girls. In Sharjah we endeavour to create awareness among women, because their behaviour and attitudes influence not only their family, but the society as a whole.”  

Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi added, “It is imperative to nurture a love for genuine beauty and its value from childhood so as to shape younger generations’ aesthetic consciousness.”

She urged the new generation of fashion designers, health and beauty experts to explore opportunities to develop these sectors, ethically and sustainably.

Sheikha Jawaher noted: “Emirati women have embraced  other cultures without losing their identity. They have taken the best of what has been passed down to them by their culture and adopted new concepts, creating a harmony between physical appearance and spiritual essence as the foundation for beauty and elegance.”
