  • HH Sheikha Mozah Bint Marwan Al Maktoum: When She Took To The Sky

    Since she was little, HH Sheikha Mozah Bint Marwan Al Maktoum’s dream was to become a pilot – to experience freedom and joy, to be among the birds and the clouds, of truly flying. She practiced and trained for years to achieve this dream, becoming the first female pilot to join the Dubai Police Airwing. In When She Took To The Sky, Sheikha Mozah looks to the skies for stories about women in the fields of aviation and space travel, with a special focus on the pioneering Arab women who made history in these fields. This is a not-to-be-missed event to celebrate the launch of this essential book about the role models who have inspired Sheikha Mozah and who will inspire you, too.

    Recommended for ages 7+
