EVENTFUL is one way to describe the schedule of Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival, Chairperson of the International Federation of Horse Racing Academies (IFHRA) and Chairperson of Ladies & Apprentice Racing Committees in the International Federation of Arabian Horse Racing Authorities (IFAHR) and today is one to be remembered.
The Women of the Future Summit took place on Wednesday at the Hilton, Park Lane, where Sawaya had rightfully earned her place as she joined others to discuss the world of millennial leaders.
Accompanied by HE Sulaiman Al Mazroui, UAE Ambassador to the UK, Lara attended a private meeting with Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex, Royal Ambassador of the Women of the Future Programme.
The ever-evolving activities of the Sheikh Mansoor Festival and the continued efforts of HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to sustain and develop the universal growth of Arabian racing were praised by Her Highness.
Sawaya commented: "This is an extremely proud moment for HH Sheikh Mansoor Festival and the Ambassador and we are honoured to meet with HRH The Countess of Wessex.
"Supporting young female talent in sport, especially Arabian racing is extremely important to HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, and we look forward to presenting the Women of the Future Sport Award at tonight's ceremony. We wish jockey Alice Mills and the remaining finalists the very best of luck."
