Dear Sail Readers,
A year before today, Sail Magazine was being launched into the online world, minimal team of writers with only 2 members, Shaima AlTamimi and myself.
A year back, we did not know where would Sail go, how long would its journey be, and how far can it endure.
A year ago, we started with nothing but a dream; a dream that Sail would grow miraculously in terms of readership and writers team.
We dreamt that Sail would connect with a large number of readers, who may have been discouraged from reading all along, and provide them with the content they would have loved to find and read. We dreamt that we would encourage people with hidden talents to come forward, polish their talents and have their opinions heard.
Today, we mark the beginning of the second year of publication. Growing from a team of just 2 writers, into a full-fledged team of 8 regular writers and 2 content reviewers. We started with 2 columns in society topics, now we have 8 columns in different categories such as: art, college life, life coaching, society, and technology. Proudly, we are constantly growing our team of writers, the topics being represented, and our readership is gracefully growing alongside to include readers from UAE, Saudi, Bahrain, Kuwait, UK, Canada, US, Australia, and more.
I could not end my editorial with a better quote than the below:
As for this month’s content:
- Interview: The second part of the interview with Wael AlSayegh. This part will discuss in details intercultural intelligence, AlGhaf, and its future.
- Just Another Undergrad: Fatma Bujsaim describes the thin line between knowledge and education. Only those who want to learn would notice its existence.
- Living Through The Eyes of Art: Hamda AlHashemi argues that practicing a harmful routine unconsciously can result in massive destruction to us and to our environment.
- Microscopic Me: Rooda AlNeama explores the journey of being aware of her negative thoughts and tries to zap them out.
- Scenes from Life: Rawan Albina, a generation Xer, she takes us on a trip down memory lane to describe the technological metamorphosis, its side effects and outcomes.
- Society of Tomorrow: Mohamad Al Junaibi expresses his observations and assessments of the current strides and movements involving Social Media within the Arab world
- To the Point: Mohammed Kazim argues that UAE’s diversity can sometimes be a cause of certain types of inefficiency. He then demonstrates 3 ways of creating productivity and avoiding inefficiency in diverse environments.
- Words, Observations, and Ramblings: Reem Abdalla sheds light on the mail-order bride service in the UAE and how it reflects on the Emirati culture. She also describes the effects and consequences of the UAE’s rate of marriage, divorce and spinsterhood.
Enjoy the read.
