Women. The backbone of our society, the sturdy foundation in every family, and the world’s better half. March 8th marks World Women’s Day, where we celebrate the females of the world for the great contributions they have made and continue to make.
We learn our courage, resilience, and passion from women in our lives. From the gentle touch of our mothers, giving us the passion we need to persevere, to the tender friendships and relationships we have with our daughters, sisters, friends, and cousins, who show us day in and day out what it means to be brave and determined.
On Women’s Day, we would like to honor and thank all mothers who have happily given their time, energy, and years to nurture generations of people. We also want to salute the single ladies of all ages who are being productive members of society as well as wonderful friends who listen and support others. Last but certainly not least, a round of applause to the boss ladies who are killing it in the corporate world!
As women, we should be raising each other and celebrating each other’s wins. No matter what you set your goal to, you should have enough faith in yourself to know that you are strong enough to achieve it and go beyond. Women are the real superheroes in this world (sorry Marvel and DC), they can be housewives, mothers, businesswomen, artists, chefs, doctors, engineers, and the list goes on.
When given the right tools, resources, platform, and chance to shine, they will rise to the occasion and dazzle the world. The UAE, specifically Dubai, offers women great opportunities to pursue their dreams and passion from education to the workplace.
At MHC, we love and support women in business, so we wanted to take this opportunity to shed light on the Dubai boss ladies who deserve recognition for their efforts.

Heba and Sarah
Coming from an educator’s background, Heba and Sarah believe in “Learning through play” and after observing their own children play with other brands of tiles, they decided to create their own version with features that were lacking; stronger magnets, scratch resistance, simpler design, and affordable price.
Their main passion is sparking creativity, which is stated in their slogan “To Creativity and Beyond”. Heba and Sara founded their company, Simply Toys, in July of 2020 with only two of us, and by the end of 2021, we became a team of 6 employees in both UAE & Egypt who share the same vision and mission.

Liberty is a strong and independent woman who always turns to nature for healing. She understands that the connection we have with our nature is important for our wellness. Liberty had chronic UTIs and BV that were always treated with antibiotics over and over again. She came across womb steaming and immediately reaped the benefits of this ancient practice. This inspired her to learn how to make herbal blends and the protocols to help other women with this natural healing option. Soon after, she launched her business, She Is Liberty, to help women in the UAE become the best versions of themselves through natural practices.
