His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, has hailed the nation’s youth and called them its “hope and treasure”, urging them to take the future into their hands.

On the occasion of International Youth Day, a video was shared on Twitter that has him praising young citizens and highlighting talented citizens, including chief cultural guide Fatma Khalid, robotics engineer Maryam Buhumaid, and Shamma Al Thehli, who secured first place in a Korean speech contest in the UAE.
