Several enthusiasts including students from Community College of Qatar (CCQ) and volunteers attempted a human formation of the ionic image of Tamim Al Majd at Aspire Dome yesterday.
As part of Tamim is Glory National Campaign, CCQ expressed their loyalty and love towards Qatar and Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. Students and alumni from CCQ and International volunteers participated in the human formation.
“We came with this creative and unique idea of showing love and support for our beloved country. I love my country, this is a very small gesture which we planned today in order to show our affection towards our dearly loved leader. Today, many people have gathered together to show their support in love of Qatar. We opened the doors to the public to indulge people who are ready to participate,” Safia Al Sheeb, Head of Public Relations at CCQ told The Peninsula.
“Our message today is to show that all the residents living in Qatar, love Qatar and our Emir. Female participants will form the frame of ‘Tamim is glory’ image on a white sheet spread over 2,000 sqm. Half of CCQ students are on vacation, so only few of them showed up,” she added.
Several students from CCQ and its alumni gave shape to the idea. People and families held up the hash tags props of #Tamim_is_Glory , #Long_Live_Qatar and #Long_Live_Tamim for clicking pictures at the Aspire Dome.
Al Jazi Al Hajri, student at CCQ, quoted the Emir: “Great leaders don’t tell you what to do, they show you how it’s done.”
International volunteers registered themselves online to be a part of this initiative. Various nationalities were present to participate at the event.
“ I live here my kids are Qatari my support for Qatar is because Qatar has done nothing but THE BEST for all the people living on this land. I want to convey my message to our leader that keep going, you are doing a great job that makes up proud citizen of Qatar. My kids are not here but they support their leader behind the scene,” said Eman Amnah AL Mushiri, an American- Qatari participant.
Ghaliyeh, A young girl from Global Academy participated with enthusiasm and said: “I love H H Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, I support my country from my heart. I am excited to stand and create the picture of Tamim is Glory.”
“Last year, we did not celebrate our National Day and donated money to Gaza but this year we celebrated National Day of Qatar every single day. Every day, we have a new message to write on this famous ionic image of our Emir, which is placed in every corner of our country. I graduated from CCQ and wanted to support my college for this innovative idea,” Fatima Al Meadadi, a QCC alumna told The Peninsula.
