    Thank you!

    I love how she does not only promote the sport, but young skaters from her country as well.

    I follow her on istagram, she's really a beautiful woman and skater. I also hope she'll make it to the Olympics, even if it's gonna be hard, she'll fight for it.

    She will definitely fight for it but being realistic her chance is close to zero. Countries like UK, Slovakia and Finland will fight for a spot at Nebelhorn Trophy. But she will definitely inspire girls to start figure skating.

    Michelle Kwan skated with Zahra in Abu Dhabi today .


    Sounds like an unanticipated thing? Michelle says she borrowed skates and attire from Zahra.

    That's so amazing!

    I love how Zahra is promoting the sport in her country. Here is a video of her compatriot Ameera Mubarak skating as well:

    Love that she uses Arabic music

    And here Zahra is supportive of 11-year old Dhiyab Al Darmaki:

    Zahra is such an inspiration. These stories and photos bring tears (of happiness) to my eyes.
