You think you know, but you have no idea. The insider story of Emiratweet is right here…

Emiratweet is the first Emirati Online Social Community for the Emiratis by the Emiratis. Emiratweet founders have come together to give something back to their country and people in terms of organizing informative events, bridging the gap, sustaining the Emirati presence through social media, supporting Emiratis. In this issue, we interviewed Emiratweet founders: Heba AlSamt, Hanan Huwair, and Ayesha AlJanahi

  • Interviewed by Iman Ben Chaibah

  • How was Emiratweet born?

    Heba: Emiratweet was conceived on TEDxDubai 2009. Bashar Al Atiyat talked about the importance of changing a distorted image; why should it be changed, and how. So we started thinking of how to step up and change the distorted image associated with Emiratis at that time. And then, we started meeting and discussing the idea further.
    During that phase, we were approached to give a talk in a conference called “Cool Twitter”, that would be held on 18th of November, 2009. We decided to take the opportunity to present our idea of how Emiratis use social media and twitter. We started brainstorming for a brand name, and finally, our friend Aida Al Busaidy suggested “Emiratweet”. After presenting the concept in the conference, we announced the launch and started since then.

    Hanan: We started small. We started with a twitter account that gives Emiratis a voice and a place where they speak their minds. We had an idea; we shared it with people, asked for their feedback and opinions, and then we took the responsibility to act upon them.

  • Emiratweet has three co-founders. What is the role of each?

    Ayesha: My role as a co-founder is to handle the “EmiraTeyat” initiative. It started after our “EmiraTeyat” event back in March 2010, in which we celebrated Emirati women in light of Women’s day. We did not want to stop there, so we decided to carry on highlighting the Emirati women’s talents and businesses.

    Heba: Besides that, there are Emirati women who have paved the way for us and played a very big role in our society. So we try to focus on them. We also look for achievements by Emirati women and try to bring them to light and write about them under “EmiraTeyat”.

    Hanan: We sat one day and prepared an organizational structure. We identified the board members so that the final decision goes through multiple reviews before finalizing it. Emiratweet has different aspects that are juggled between us. Essentially, Heba is in charge of the writing and maintaining the social media presence. I manage a portion of organizing the events and strategizing for future ones. Ayesha handles the EmiraTeyat initiative. Symbolically, Heba is the soul of Emiratweet and I am the mind of it.

  • How did you grow since you started?

    Hanan: We started with a certain direction in mind, but as we grew we got plenty of feedback. We try not to let any idea, comment, or feedback; positive or negative, pass away unnoticed. We take it all very seriously. We have regular meetings through which we examine all the input and plan how to build on them. At some point, we revisited our mission statement to reflect our message appropriately.

    Heba: When we started, the website mainly looked like a blog and as we grew we tried to make it look more like a portal than a blog or a website. It now has different sections and divisions.

  • What got you into organizing events?

    Hanan: When we started growing we found that our followers have a lot in common, plenty to share, and a lot to talk about. We are interacting on the social media level, but we did not want to lose the human element. Hence, we thought it is time to bring people together under one roof.

    Heba: What pushed us to start with events was the financial crisis. Dubai was then being bashed a lot, and we Emiratis did not have the sufficient knowledge about the topic to respond. So we organized our first event “Think the Unthinkable”. We brought several people who are experts on the matter to discuss the financial crisis. We aimed to raise awareness on the topic and educate people on it.

    Hanan: From the feedback we got, we decided to do it every month. We would pick a topic, bring experts in the matter, bring people together, and discuss it properly.

  • Why and how do you sustain your presence on Social Media channels?

    Hanan: Some people mistakenly think we are trying to represent the UAE. That is not the case. What we are trying to do is to sustain an Emirati presence in social media communities, by being present and creating a community that is approachable yet very authentic, trusted and reliable.

    Heba: We do that by having Emiratweet on several social media platforms. We try to expand into more whenever we hear about a new platform from our team or followers.

    Hanan: We are trying to conquer new social media platforms, create a presence there, and be the pioneers. We do not want to be the only people. Instead, we want to pave the way for people, show them ways of using it, and encourage them to use it.

  • How do you monitor and measure your success?

    Heba: We measure it through many aspects: by the contributions we get, our website traffic statistics, our events’ attendees count, post event feedback, feedback emails, and by word of mouth. One of our success metrics is having our fans and followers getting back to us with certain information or rumors to verify them and give them the real story.

    Hanan: We consider ourselves successful if even one single person benefitted from us at any point. At the end of the day, we want to contribute to the community and the individuals. So if we could leave any kind of influence or impact then that is a success for us.

  • How do you feel about Emiratweet’s first year anniversary coming around the corner?

    Ayesha: I still remember the first discussion we had about Emiratweet and its concept and all. Now, proudly, everyone is talking about it. We have so many ideas and developments that are yet to come.

    Heba: I am excited and proud. This is a very big step from where we were a year ago. Emiratweet would not have made it through its first year if it were not for our supporters, followers, and cofounders. It became a challenge now because we grew this much in a short period of time and we have many people who have high expectations of us.

    Hanan: Emiratweet’s anniversary marks the day we tell people that it is not a one day or one time thing. We did it for a year and we are still growing. We have started strategizing and looking into the whole upcoming year. There are many exciting stuff coming up; so follow us and read our website to stay updated with our news.

  • What did you prepare for the anniversary?

    Hanan: We are organizing an exclusive gala dinner; we will honor a number of our past speakers. We will highlight our one-year journey and then thank everyone. It is our way of celebrating this with all those who contributed to what we are now. This is our way of telling them: thank you very much and we really appreciate your continuous support and believe in Emiratweet.

  • How did you grow on the personal level since your started?

    Hanan: We started to act on whatever comes to our mind, seek for the feedback and learn from it. We do not wait or keep ideas in the back of our heads anymore. We have already challenged ourselves into achieving this theoretical concept and it worked. We have learnt a lot and we are still learning.

    Heba: For an IT person, I have become more social and more open. I started to believe in our ideas and became more confident. We, the cofounders, have entirely different personalities, but it helped us get the best out of each other.

    Ayesha: I learnt that I should not have doubts in my abilities, to trust myself more, and to be determined and have faith in my dreams.

  • What do you wish Emiratweet to be remembered as?

    Heba: The first Emirati social community that preserved, maintained, and sustained its cultural identity and traditions.

    Ayesha: We want to set a good example. We want to be remembered for taking the initiative and making Emiratweet very successful. So that even if we reached to the point that we pass it over, we would have given something that is rich in value.

    Hanan: We want to be remembered as the people who started something different, and committed themselves to contributing into the community. We want to be looked at and be inspired to do things and to believe in one’s self. We want to create a modern and reliable community, through which upcoming generations can get in touch with their national and cultural Emirati identity, feel proud of it, and contribute to it.

Community Initiatives by Individuals

The word “Initiative” has been thrown around a lot lately. So what is it really about? In this time and place, some words have become very broad in terms of literal meaning, but very different and specific in terms of individual’s perspectives. Initiatives can be started by governments, enterprises, or individuals; however, in this article, we will focus on the latter, specifically the ones that serve the community.

For the sake of the argument, the word “initiative” will be defined as follows: it is the act of starting something with good intentions, without being requested or instructed to do so. Initiatives are setup to fix something in the society, help a niche, form a community for a certain purpose, fill a gap in the society, or so on, from aspects that would make the society itself an easier, better, and more satisfying place for people to live in. Ideally, initiatives continue and sustain their presence; some are operated voluntarily by committed individuals, while others are turned into businesses.

There are a lot of initiatives operating in the society. The motives sometimes vary between good intentions, or for the profit, or merely for the fame. Regardless of the motives, if the initiative is serving the society righteously, then the motives should not be a barrier for others to support their success.

There are so many examples on initiatives that continue to positively influence the community. Such as TEDxDubai, the conference was first hosted in October 2009. It was organized by a team of TED fanatics who wanted to bring to Dubai the value of sharing ideas, by doing so, they inspired many people to find their true passion and get focused on their dreams. Emiratweet is another example. It is a social entity whose founders aim to create a strong Emirati community by bringing together UAE nationals with common interests in informative events. Ahdaaf, an indoor football facility; the main objective of the owners is to provide a convenient environment to encourage sports and reduce health issues arising from obesity. POAG, Promise Of A Generation, its founders aim through their events to bring different cultures under one roof, raise awareness on essential society issues, and pursue solutions for those issues.

There is always room for new initiatives. Look around you. Find that one thing that you always say I wish people knew more about it, or I wish that thing/situation could be any different. Chances are, you are not the only one who is thinking of the same thought. This means, if you start an initiative on such, you will eventually build a network of people having the same interest, and together you will be able to create a sustained solution.

Starting an initiative is not as hard as many people may think it is. Nowadays, many initiatives start by merely using the Internet and social media to build a community and a network of supporters. Starting an initiative is more of having the right attitude of a doer and go-getter. As a suggestion, here is an aggregated possible guideline to start an initiative:

1. Find that one thing you know you want to create or change.

2. Find at least one more person who shares the same notion.

3. Define clearly what you want to do. Write a mission statement and an initiative description in which you list down the extensive details of what you want to achieve and how.

4. Commit to go through with it. Some people choose to tell their friends about their plans to be held accountable by them. They find that at times, it matters more to keep their word rather than the actual achievement of the initiative.

5. Start right away. It is easier to start when the idea is still fresh in your head. It is also easier to keep the momentum once you start operating.

6. Do not fall into thinking that you are not going to get any obstacles; they are part and parcel of the package. They are not showstoppers. They should only make you strive harder and get a clearer vision of what you really want to achieve.

7. Learn from your mistakes and feedback to continuously fine-tune your initiative and grow it.

This is how most of the initiatives started, with small steps till they started achieving what they are today. They say you do not have to be great to start, but you need to start to be great.

Scenes from life

“There should be no regrets only lessons learned”.  Now stop for a minute and think about this sentence. What is the first thought that crosses your mind? Do you have regrets in your life or are you free of them? How about this sentence: “worrying is as effective as chewing bubble gum”? (I borrowed this one from a 90’s song) Do you agree with it?  Does it make sense to you?

I personally believe that regret and worries are unnecessary.

Of course you might get the pangs of regret or you wake up one morning with an anxious feeling that reminds you of things that went wrong and the far too familiar question pops up: “what if…” Regret is the natural cause of a “what if” question placed in the past and worry is the natural consequence of a “what if” question placed in the future.

Through my work as a coach, I have met many people who are consumed by regret. They basically live their life in the past and feed on past glories and failures to the point that they forget to live in the present.  You can keep playing back scenarios in your head but the truth is you cannot change the past. The only thing you can affect is the future. Yes, you can have a big impact on your future. Actually, your future is in your hands so what you make of it is entirely up to you. If you are resentful, blaming or keep worrying about what maybe happening, you are dwelling on negativity and not allowing your resourceful, creative self to be in charge and take the horse’s reins.

I am sure most of you have read or heard about the Secret. The whole idea behind it is simple. Ideas are energies that you project and they have an impact on your future. No wonder bad things keep happening when you imagine them! In the same way great things will start happening if you start projecting them. So instead of thinking up worst-case scenarios every time, try putting a positive spin on your thoughts. Imagine all your dreams coming true, your ambitions being accomplished, and visualize yourself attaining your goal. Negative self-talk is a killer. It sabotages every single one of your efforts and pushes you back on your path instead of pushing you forward. If you keep telling yourself you are a loser or whatever you think you are, it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. You will always be that loser.  Instead, ask yourself who would I like to be? No dreams are too big to accomplish and no ideas are silly ideas. If you catch yourself saying things like “oh stop being silly” or “this dream is just not practical” pinch yourself and say this out loud: “I deserve to dream and be happy and I am going to do everything in my power to make things happen!”

If the picture can be rosy and nice, then why do we make mistakes? The answer is simple, mistakes help us grow. This is where the expression “there are no mistakes only lessons learned” comes in. If we do not make mistakes and do not get to experience the array of negative emotions that accompany mistakes including regret, we are unable to see our own boundaries. We are all flexible human beings but some of us are more flexible than others and when we grow we keep pushing our own boundaries and testing ourselves, our values, and our thresholds. We are taught early on the difference between right and wrong so these are the first acceptable social limitations that we put on ourselves. But as we grow older, we become more critical and judgemental of ourselves and others. We create opinions and allow these opinions to dictate who we ought to be. Where there is judgement there is no room for growth. Remove the judgement and you will have ample space to experiment and learn. Making the same mistakes or falling in the same traps does not mean you are stupid or a bad person. It simply means that there is a lesson there for you that you still have not learnt. If you keep allowing people to take advantage of you this means that you are pushing yourself to the limit until you have enough courage to stand up and say: ENOUGH!

In general, “What you resist persists”. Which means that the situations that you refuse to deal with because they are too uncomfortable or too painful often carry your biggest lessons. So try to have an open heart and an open mind the next time you find yourself in a situation you are trying to avoid. And ask yourself what can I learn from this situation? What lessons does it conceal?

In conclusion, as you grow into your best-fulfilled self, there should be no room for regrets and worries in your life. No room for “what ifs”. Instead of dwelling on such emotions, I would encourage you to fill that space with love, compassion, and forgiveness. Have love and compassion for yourself and others. Eliminate judgement and most importantly forgive all those who may have caused you pain and sorrow including yourself. It is only in forgiveness that you can release the negative emotions and allow for bigger and better things to happen in your life.

Finding Myself on Campus

Fatma Bujsaim (@FatmaBujsaim)

Senior Editor. Ex- Column: Just Another Undergrad

After graduating with a Bachelor degree in International Studies and a minor in converged media, Fatma still finds herself hungry for knowledge, which led to her enrolling in a postgraduate program. Her passion for both reading and writing has made her extend her stay in Sail eMagazine so that she can learn & develop her skills. When not buried in her books and novels, Fatma is found on tennis courts or in a classroom learning a new language.
She wrote her previous column: “Just another undergrad” hoping she can give what she didn’t have when she was a freshman: comfort and guidance, and also bring back memories to all those graduates out there. She wonders if things are going to be the same after graduation.

For fourteen years, we have lived with no worries over what to wear to school; the uniform was our savior. If we ever bothered to think much about our clothes, it would probably be over what sweater or cardigan to wear, maybe even what shoes.

Walking as a freshman through the corridors of the university campus, looking at the different people and their way in dressing, it makes us wonder where do we belong and who we really are.

We start trying out the different styles, looking for a place or a gang to fit in with. From the sporty and practical to the elegant or extravagant, we might even try the Barbie look. Some days we will try wearing heels and on other days we will throw on some sneakers. We keep experimenting until we find that one look that makes us feel like ‘us’, the appearance that makes us look at the person reflecting in the mirror and say “THAT is me”

Whether we were popular kids in high school, nerds, posh or emos, university is the place where we find who we really are. It is the place where we get to explore ourselves and test everything surrounding us and beyond.

I do not say this in terms of our sense of fashion or our style alone. I am talking about all aspects in our life. We start exploring the way we talk, walk, and act with different people. We learn the best way of communicating that suits us. We learn it by persuading our professors to raise our grade or convincing our classmates with our argument.

When we applied for university/college as high school seniors, some of us already knew what we wanted to study while a lot of us did not. Regardless of which of the previous groups we fell in, we all drift away from what we wanted in some way or another. Some might decide to change the whole major, some might add a minor to it, and some might even try out courses from two or three different colleges to figure things out.

All the changes and hassles we go through are just attempts to find ourselves; find the place where we truly belong. Finding something that interests us is like finding the door that will lead us to our own playground, the place where we are most comfortable in and doing what we love.

A lot of us change the path we originally came from. Some of us will jump in between paths trying to make them one, to find the place where he/she belongs.

Somewhere between sophomore and junior year we start seeing things differently but in a good way; our own way I guess. Day after day, we start understanding ourselves more, and at some point, we get a better and clearer view of who we are and where we want to be. We draw paintings inspired by imaginary images of the future from our minds, and bring them to life to make them a reality.

So if you changed your mind with what you wanted to do in your life or who you want to be, that is all right. We all did. And if at some point you felt lost and confused and did not know who you are, that is also okay; apparently it is part of being human.

There is no problem in discovering one’s self, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with trying different things; to find that place where we can say that this is me.

This, my friends, is what I found out while I am on campus. I wonder if that is going to change after graduation.

By Mohamed Al Jneibi (@maljunaibi)

It is no secret that much of the buzz and news going around, in the world of electronics, has to be in the form of touch/tablet devices. These devices are boasting more than the regular features of simply individuals’ interacting with each other, they now interface with the accurate reactions of the human touch.

Capacitive screens or popularly known as touchscreens have been in the industry for quite sometime, as far back as the early 70’s when the touchscreen device was more of a prototype than anything else. With the development of resistive touchscreens first, the technology became part and parcel of various areas of industry, be it in sales, optical research and even the music industry. Scientists have always envisioned a world where systems, and services could all be managed with the command of the ordinary human hand. It started first with the aid of the stylus (that funky looking pen that always accompanied your PDA, or the first generation smart phone). This was the era of the resistive touchscreens, but we were still not there yet.

Then came the capacitive and infrared-based touchscreens, and the various operating systems that began to support the first “truly human” interface with the computer or device. Then came the iPhone, and a lot of things happened afterwards. The growing number of tablet devices is rapidly increasing; many manufacturers are now finding this technology an easy win within the consumer electronics market. Children will be able to start their first stints on to the computerized world with the touch of a screen. The attachment that the next generation will have towards their PCs or computer devices will inadvertently have some effect to their overall growing process.

Children could find the more traditional and primitive forms of interface with a computer a very tedious task. After all, would you not find it strange that we have to navigate with at least 2 devices to our computers? The mouse, and keyboard concept, is surely going to become a thing of the past, when more advanced touchscreens become common within the daily lifestyles of everyone.

This sort of opportunity will surely help bridge the gap between the more computer literate amongst us with those who may feel slightly intimidated in performing the various tasks that are now somehow computerized. If you look at it in hindsight, virtually most of your typical governmental processes are now computerized or at least automated (to a certain degree). This would probably be due to the many system analysts who have not only mapped the overall business processes, but who have also enabled the business into doing more (with less) at the work place.

The world is now starting to “touch” more of what is to being developed in the upcoming years. Our perceptions and views on how to better work with systems are already being revolutionized in front of our very own eyes. The dilemma is, what is next? What happens next? It would only be a matter of time before computing systems interfacing with cognitive or thought-based decisions become a reality.

This would mean that we would be able to “think” a command to the system, whereby based on whatever the criteria that is sent, a response or output would then be made available. This fresh and very early form of computing is slowly making some ground. The human brain is filled with charges and sensations due to the uniqueness of the brains own matter. Through establishing a medium, and by properly translating the various electrical impulses of the brain, we are in fact making the computer correctly input and process the data coming from its source (which would be the human brain in this case).

Much of this might still be sometime away, but we can also wonder the amount of advancement made at the turn of the 20th century. It would have sounded quite odd, speaking to a group of people in the 1980’s, that one day we would be able to record people’s everyday interactions at work, and at the same time upload the video from their homes. This in turn would mean that someone else (half way around the world) would be able to watch this via web browser, and watch the same video over and over again. YouTube anyone?
