Noting their position as powerful community representatives, Sheikha Hind stated: “You are shining examples for future generations who will go on to pursue scientific studies. You each have a unique ability to positively influence the region’s young minds as inspirational role models, and your recent visit to Qatar Academy was undoubtedly a source of great encouragement for the young students.”
