AlDhabi Rashed AlMheiri

AlDhabi AlMheiri is a talented nine-year-old. She is the Founder of Rainbow Chimney Bookshop and Publishing House and currently holds the title of the youngest Emirati publisher and entrepreneur, and secured a Guinness World Record as the youngest publisher to release a bilingual book series.


Her passion for empowering children's talents in writing and publishing led her to initiate a program that fosters creativity among children, including those with special needs. Remarkably, she has published over 52 books for children.  Among her notable works are two bilingual books: I Had an Idea, which details how she conceived the concept for Rainbow Chimney Bookshop and the challenges she faced with her cousins that inspired her to help others, and Here Was the Beginning, where she shares her journey, highlighting the steps she took to become the world's youngest publisher.
