People and Personalities – A Talk by Fatima Masood, co-author of “I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!”

Talk – ‘People and Personalities’
by Fatima Masood, Co-author of the up coming book “I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!”
At the Creative Mumz’s Meet-up
on 22nd November 2008

‘People and Personalities’was the topic of the talk conducted for the Creative Mumz group in Dubai. The meet-up was at Al Qasba in Sharjah and started at 11:00 am in the morning.

Fatima introduced the Twins’ concept of the arithmetic operations (+ – × ÷) that can help in understanding yourself and others. An activity was prepared to list down qualities every individual identified as necessary to add and subtract in her/his personality. 

Then, time was spent to note people and qualities we would like to multiply and divide in the society. An interesting discussion sparked off when everyone interpreted a quotation by Aldous Huxley about the society. It was a very interesting talk and informative too.

Active platform to share skills and experiences

By Anjana Sankar, Senior Reporter
Published: September 09, 2008, 23:25

 

Dubai: Two years ago when Faryal Amir had to give up her job after her second child was born, she got cut off from her usual social circle.

The Pakistani national and some of her friends decided to host a website to keep in touch. So was born the creativemumz.bravehost.com, a networking site for creative women living in Dubai and Sharjah. Now with more than 400 members who hook up regularly, the site has become an active platform for women to share their experiences and skills.

 

“I had a lot of free time and did not know how to use it. I felt there were more women of my ilk who cannot find venues to interact creatively,” said Faryal, a Montessori trained teacher. She says it is a very rewarding experience to meet and make new friends over the net. “We organise workshops, coffee evenings, story telling sessions for children, post our queries and seek counsel from other members,” she said.

Like Faryal, many women in the UAE are joining the cyber club in droves, joining the bandwagon of the burgeoning number of women network users.
