How two sisters are reshaping Qatar’s image abroad.
Shaikha Mayassa’s role as head of the Qatar Museum Authority, includes attending cultural events and art biennales around the world to promote the Emirate as a cultural hub for the region.
Sheikha Hind, who also graduated from Duke University in Durham N. Carolina, has been increasingly gaining international attention as well. As Director of the Emir’s Office and Chief of Staff, Hind doesn’t simply stand on the sidelines but has become a key advisor to her father, helping shape policy, as well as representing Qatar at numerous conferences and official visits abroad. By doing so she has become the global face of a new generation of Qatari women.
