The impressed Dubai Ruler met the 6-year-old after her adorable video mimicking him went viral recently.
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Dubai Ruler, has met the adorable Emirati girl, whose video of her ‘mimicking’ one of his speeches, went viral.
This time, she got to imitate his speech in front of one of the most loved Arab leaders in the world.
If you have seen latest tweets by the Dubai Ruler, then you probably have been one in thousands of social media users who wished they were that little girl.
Shaikh Mohammed retweeted a video – last night – of a little girl mimicking one of the sentences he previously said in a speech, and expressed his desire to meet her.
“This little girl impressed me, god bless her. I want to visit her, does anyone know who she is?” said Shaikh Mohammed’s tweet.
Yes, we did! She is Muhra Ahmed Al Shehi, a 6-year-old first grader at the Sharjah Model School for Girls.
The girl did not expect that her video, which was meant to be a rehearsal for her school assembly, to reach His Highness. The original post on Instagram has garnered over 41,000 views and 353 comments, since it was posted yesterday.
“She’s extremely happy, she can’t believe it,” her aunt Tasnim Al Fawalsi told Khaleej Times over the phone.
Dubai media office took to Twitter today to share the photos and a video from the ‘heart-melting’ meeting.
Al Shehi, known to her followers for her outgoing and cute personality, was jumping for joy. Having previously met His Highness Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Sharjah Ruler and Member of the UAE Supreme Council, she is looking forward for her next Royal meeting.
Earlier, talking to Indian Truth, she said that the family got contacted by the office of His Highness who are now expecting a visit from Dubai Ruler. However, she had not revealed the time of the visit.
Shaikh Mohammed also posted a longer video of his meeting with Muhra, on Instagram, which also captures their interaction before she timidly imitates his speech for him. The Ruler can be seen telling her about how she has grabbed people’s attention with her video and also compliments her dress.
“I came to see you and visit you. You have captured people’s attention, they told me about you! Your dress is beautiful, what were you saying in the video?”
Shaikh Mohammed also tweeted about his meeting with the little viral star, calling her the ‘queen of children:
“With my daughter Muhra Al Shehi – an emirati angel and the queen of children”
