"To me art in order to be truly great must, like the beauty of nature, be universal in its appeal. It must be simple in its presentation and direct in its expression, like the language of nature." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
At this presentation during the 2012 Undergraduate Research Conference myself as well as the eight other students who went with me, presented our findings from our research and learning that took place before and during our trip to the United Arab Emirates. My portion of the research delt with the veiling of Emirati women as a cultural phenomenon vs an Islamic requirement. My research stemmed from a conversation I had with two Emirati women I met at the Women as Global Leaders Conference at Zayed University Abu Dhabi March 13-15 2012.
