“Sometimes I’m the nurturing mum, sometimes the coaching mum, and sometimes I try to be her friend,” Noor Al Tamimi says of her 14-year-old daughter, Ameera. “I can tell her anything,” Ameera adds, “She’s my best friend.”
Mother of five children, Noor, CEO of Bedashing Beauty Lounge, has expertly honed her mothering skills, describing herself as, “Genuine, because honesty is very important. I never lie to my kids.” She also leads by example, “because I’ve learned the only way for my children to do the right thing is to see their mother do the right thing first.”
Ameera has learnt to be “confident and how to be a leader. We share the same personality,” she smiles, “and we’re so similar that people call me ‘Mini Noor’” she added.
