Praising the "driven youth, creativity, and positive energy"
His Royal Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum arrived at the Social Media Influencers Summit today in time to hear HE Jamal bin Huwaireb deliver his speaking presentation on the use of pure Arabic language. Tweets came out on the summit's Twitter feed, that captioned Huwaireb reciting a poem written by Sheikh Mohammed himself.
The Dubai ruler, later took to the stage to say a few words on the importance of social media in forging future initiatives in civilisation. He echoed his sentiments later on his own social media channels by saying:
"It was a pleasure attending Arab Social Media Influencers Summit, with driven youth, creativity, and positive energy. Communication created civilisations and new forms of communication will allow for bigger leaps for humanity."
The digital pioneering Sheikh was also on hand to present some awards to this year's various winners including Ascia of The Hybrids on for 'Best Blog.' Ascia, who boasts 1.2 million followers on Instagram confessed to being a little stunned at accepting the honour from Sheikh Mohammed, posting a 'selfie' (pictured above) with the Dubai Ruler and his son, the Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan with the caption:
"Today we were given an award by HH Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum for best blog at the Arab Social Media Summit #ARABsmis. Look at my crazy happy face! I'm so humbled and so grateful that you all have made this possible. Thank you all or your support & belief in me."
