Great Minds are Young

15-year-old Nada Al Dash is celebrating today a valuable heritage embraced by a particularly old building she felt connection with the moment she noticed. All she could see from its cracked walls and weary condition is authenticity and beauty.

Here’s a drawing of that building she would like to share with us! Enjoy!




Young Egyptian Nada Al Dash set another challenge for herself and created this beautiful colorful painting called “My Way”. Nada says this painting expresses her freedom of thought and action.


It feels great to see young talents enthusiastic, passionate, and thoughtful. Hind Abdulmajeed proudly shares with us her latest creation, which she introduces and interprets as follows:

“This painting is about the subject of child abuse. It’s under the name of “Through a Child’s Eye.” the colors stand for the happiness and joy that should be there in a child’s memory about his childhood; and the black lines stand for the hands, people or power that is destroying all what childhood stands for. I hope you like it. Thank you.”

Thank you Hind for always sharing with us your passions, thoughts, and talents 🙂

“I believe when you set your mind to do something, you can create something incredible.”  This is how Nada Al Dash introduced her beautiful painting!

Nada says, “I never knew how to draw a single animal, not even a bird or a fish. But after gaining faith in myself, I discovered that I can do anything as long as I believe in myself. I never had the biggest faith in myself, but now I am a new person, I am proud of myself for accomplishing something. I am happy to give it as a present for my older sister, for her new home after her marriage(…)
I am proud of what I’ve accomplished because this is not just a painting with a cute cat, this is my hope, faith, love, and accomplishment, and I am happy that I have gained faith in myself again.”

We’re proud of you too, Nada! Keep it up!


After sharing with us her poetic talent, Nada Al Dash is sharing today he passion for drawing and painting. This is how Nada interprets her work:

“This is called Love, War, and Peace. It is about the fact that love and war can’t get along except with peace. If there is peace in life, love and war will be the best of friends; they can’t be combined without peace. Love is red, war is blue, the flowers are peace (yellow), and the white line is the separation. This is my image of love with war, and war with love, and peace with love and war. Hope u like it!”

Shahrazad Zare is a 15-year-old Iranian young lady, who never keeps raising the bar for herself. Her determination to improve and succeed is phenomenal, and her beautiful spirit is exceptional. Shahrazad has a lot of talents, among which is drawing. She’s sharing with us today one of her favorites drawn last year. When I asked her about her beautiful drawing she said, “Well, whenever I look at her I see a woman who has done a lot in her life. She has had a lot of experiences; sadness, happiness and of course problems. But she has risen again and left everything behind. I now see a person in a very lofty position of her personality. I’d like to call her ‘Lofty Personality’.

 Enjoy 🙂

As promised, Hind Abdulmajeed shares with us one of her beautiful paintings. This painting is about “how ideas can flourish in a person’s mind; how the mind is a fertile space ready for growing ideas and harvesting creations.”
