IN CELEBRATION OF BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH, WE ARE INCREDIBLY HONORED TO BE INTERVIEWING AMAL AMEEN AN ADVOCATE ON RAISING AWARENESS AND TO SPEAK MORE ABOUT THIS TOPIC.
How did you become involved with October Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what drew you to help?
I became involved in Breast Cancer Aware- ness month through Being a supporter of QCS Qatar for the second year at a row, and a key note speaker at The Luxury Network Tr. breast cancer awareness event.
Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer for women and the second leading cause to death .
Choosing to be part of Such an important awareness campaign is a responsibility and a duty that we must thrive for and make the most out of it, through getting as many people involved in raising awareness and life changing support and funds.
Could you tell us how your role as an entrepreneur and a public figure reflects on this topic?
With big roles comes big responsibilities. As a Qatari Entrepreneur and influencer , I find it very important to shed a light on self em- powerment. I have always believed in togetherness makes us stronger, and that most acknowledged achievements comes from those who share knowledge and care for each other, because with the right support, good opportunities arise to life.
“ Women Breast Cancer Survivors are proof that you can walk through hell and still be an Angel.”
You’ve already made many contributions to breast cancer awareness, what drives you to continue? Do you have any personal highlights over the years?
What draws me to continue is the human drive that we all initially were raised upon and perseverance to make the world a better healthier and more positive environment to live in. And to be part of that change has definitely grown in me over the years and became an inevitable daily optimistic supplement.
What do you recommend to people walking through this journey?
What I can recommend to people walking through this journey is HOPE.
Hope is untouchable yet, putting our hands together, gives so much strength to go forward and never let a stepping stone deprive us from the essence of life.
To minimize the trauma of breast cancer in our minds and maximize awareness and the positive life changing impact hope brings.
How can a mental health professional help women and families adjust?
I believe that the more we simplify, the greater and more efficient results conquer.
I see Mental health professionals as life coaches devoted to a very fundamental cause. Their involvement in the lives of wom- en with breast cancer and their families will definitely help adjust,and mend into a healthy life style.
How have you become publicly involved in the fight against breast cancer?
As a Qatari Entrepreneur, visual artist, and fashion buyer, I had the chance to be one of the keynote speakers at several occasions that of which highlighted on Breast Cancer awareness, further I believe the most prompt ways to fight against breast cancer is to never doubt or underestimate the power of the masses, the more we stand together as women, the more opportunities will arise.
What is your message to the younger women about breast cancer awareness?
Women are strong, women are fighters, wom- en educate and bring up generations. But Woman are also fragile, sensitive and delicate and easy to brake like a rose, if not watered and nourished with the right amount of water and sunlight , it will wither, fade and die.
To be aware makes of us the best gardeners for our well being and the well being of our loved ones.
The earlier , the better.
