In an exclusive interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Abeer shares who she considers to be her “Icon of Tolerance”- her grandmother. Abeer continues to explain how her grandmother has always inspired & helped her understand the real meaning of tolerance through her kindness and equality to others. She believes tolerance is all about humanity, importance of understanding people & giving them attention regardless of their ethnicity or background.

 This year’s theme is set by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation. HH aims at highlighting and promoting the values of tolerance, a national priority for the UAE.
