Three female high-school top achievers, Aryam Al Kaabi, Taymaa Al Hazayma, and Hajar Al Batanouni, received the surprise of their life when His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, called on Thursday evening to congratulate them for excelling at their studies. You certainly do not receive a call like that very often.
“I am happy to share with the high school top achievers their success and joy,” Sheikh Mohammed said. “Being aware of the value of knowledge and its role in improving our lives is critical to our success. Education will always remain the top priority of the government. Science and learning are key to the progress of nations.”
“Our investment in the future starts with preparing youth to achieve the highest levels of excellence. We have high ambitions for our youth and we will spare no effort in helping them tap their fullest potential.”
Miss Al Kaabi and Miss Al Hazayma studied at the Mzeirea Girls School For Basic & Secondary Education in Ajman. Miss Al Batanouni is from Al Hilaliyaat Girls School For Basic & Secondary Education, also in Ajman.
