Nibras International School (NIS) was delighted to host 9-year-old AlDhabi AlMheiri, the youngest Emirati entrepreneur and author. Recognized as the youngest person to publish a bilingual book series by the Guinness World Record, she met with over 300 children at NIS and had over 30 classes from other ISP schools in the Middle East join her session virtually.
Students in Grades 3 to 5 had the unique opportunity to engage in an interview session with AlDhabi AlMheiri, gaining valuable insights into her remarkable journey. The event also featured a book signing, allowing students to meet the young author in person and receive signed copies of her work.
During her visit to NIS, AlDhabi also announced the launch of a first of its kind interactive environmental club for children, an initiative that aims to attract over 10,000 children to raise awareness about climate change and empower them to play a role in protecting the planet.
She expressed her excitement and said: “The idea of the interactive environmental club came from my will to make a change and protect the Earth. My family were my biggest supporters as they were the ones who crystallized the idea of the club which aims to create a virtual community for children that educates and enlightens them while giving them the opportunity to actively engage in their roles and develop a sense of responsibility toward their homeland and society.”
AlDhabi’s visit left a lasting mark on the students at Nibras International School, inspiring them to pursue their dreams and passions at a young age.
Jay Teston, Principal at Nibras International School said: “We believe AlDhabi’s visit to Nibras International School marks a momentous occasion as her story serves as a beacon of inspiration for our students and delivers a significant message, that age is never be a barrier to pursuing one’s dreams. We believe that this visit has ignited a spark of ambition in our students, encouraging them to strive for excellence in their own endeavours.”
