Sheikh Zayed: Inspiring young Filipinos in the emirates

by | EDITOR’S CHOICE, Feature

In times when a solid perspective on justice, humanitarianism and compassion is greatly needed, Sheikh Zayed’s life and legacy is a monument in which our hopes and chances of success as Filipinos outside of the country may be built upon. Thus, Sheikh Zayed is a light to all of us Filipinos.’

The UAE will not be in the state it is in the present without acknowledging the triumphs of the past as envisioned by the Father of the country, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. In celebration of the Year of Zayed, The Filipino Times went to  the country’s Filipino schools and asked students how Sheikh Zayed’s teachings and life have taught them valuable lessons.

Paul Francis N. Dela Cruz, Grade 10, Far Eastern Private School

“Sheikh Zayed was the first ruler of the UAE and was the key person in building the nation we set foot on today. He was the person who developed the economy of the UAE and subsequently opened its doors to expatriates and of course, us, the OFWs.”

Wilbert Matthew C. Dimaculangan, Grade 11, Philippine Emirates Private School

“Not only should the examples set by Sheikh Zayed inspire us; we should also be thankful for the generosity of the spirit of our Arab brothers in sharing their blessings with us.  This generosity of spirit they must have imbibed from the UAE Father and a great leader – Sheikh Zayed.”

Kirsten Chayne S. Noble, Grade 9, The Philippine Global School

“In times when a solid perspective on justice, humanitarianism and compassion is greatly needed, Sheikh Zayed’s life and legacy is a monument in which our hopes and chances of success as Filipinos outside of the country may be built upon. Thus, Sheikh Zayed is a light to all of us Filipinos.”

Jean Vollerie Boyles, Grade 6, The Philippine School – Abu Dhabi

“Thanks to H.H. Sheikh Zayed, Filipinos like my parents, are able to provide for our families here and back home. Legendary words and works brought myriads of chances to improve the quality of our lives. He is the youth’s inspiring superhero! – making the U.A.E the Filipinos’ second home.”

Jose Lorenzo C. Barbasa, Grade 10, United International Private School

“Filipinos are no different to Sheikh Zayed when it comes to charity, compassion and love for one’s neighbor. Our penchant to put others’ wellbeing first is something we inherited from our forefathers. The virtue of giving is one that we should inculcate in our minds and hearts; and for us teenagers, it is a message to live by.” (Photos with parental consent)
