First of all, I want to express my excitement at my friend Sumayyah Suwaidi’s win of the title! Congratulations once again Sumayyah! Please check out a feature that I did on her a couple of months ago here.

Hosted by Motivate Publishing, the evening was attended by more than 400 VIP guests and was a celebration of women in the UAE and their achievements.

Next, I was so glad to meet the vivacious and super-thrilled-at-winning-the-ADCB-Ambition-Award, Sian Rowlands. Sian Rowlands won for her business proposal for myexwardrobe.com, an initiative that encourages people to swap clothes to reduce the UAE’s carbon footprint. More success to myexwardrobe.com!

Last but not the least, the popular blogger, make-up artist, beauty product enthusiast and journalist (phew!), Huda Kattan who runs her blog called Huda Beauty. She has been on my to-do list for a while now and I loved how nicely it all came together — that I got the chance to interview her on her memorable day. Thank you Huda and I wish you all the best.

Watch snippets from the award ceremony and Sian Rowlands talking to DIAF:

Huda Kattan tells us about her state of mind that day and a sneak peak into her future plans, without revealing too much (just how it should be done!):
