Salam Alaikom everybody,
Last December, I participated in a workshop titled "The Gulf States-A Blueprint for a Globalized World", which took place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and was organized by the UAE Journalists Association and the German Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Association (KAS).
The workshop's aim was to create incorporation between young Arab and German journalists, and to strengthen relations between Germany and the Middle East, besides developing Arab- European dialogue.
Unfortunately, most (if not all) of the German participants knew very few information about my beautiful country, and some of the information were incorrect. Also, many of us (Arabs) knew much more about Germans and Germany than we already knew by talking to each other and spending time exchanging information and having honest fun.
Therefore, I have decided to work on a project that will "Insha-Allah" reduce prejudices between Western and Arab/Islamic World in general, and the United Arab Emirates in specific.
