The day has come, the day each Prot dreaded. Was it really over? It couldn’t be.
Our Prots grew closer to one another in the past 6 weeks. A family, beating with one heart, filled with laughter and joy. It began to feel more like home here at “The Protégés”.
To begin with the fun stuff, there were awards to be given. Awards for:
“Best Hair” – Bader Al Tahous
“Best Smile” – Nasser Al Humaidi
“Most Mysterious” – Haya Al Ghunaim
“Best Speaker” – Maryam Al Omani
“Best Voice” – Fatima Abdul Salam
“Best Dressed” – Eman Al Reshaid
“Most Healthy” – Fatima Al Awadhi
“Most Improved” – Nasser Al Othman
“Biggest Appetite” – Altaf Al Mudhayan
“Best Laugh” – Mohammed Al Munaiykh
Congratulations to our winners!
A videoclip created by Mentor Shamlan Al Bahar was shown. The clip showed the “Women of the Proteges”, and how their beauty is not shown in their outward appearance, but deep inside in the depths of their souls. It was a very sentimental moment for our ladies.
Moments later, Shamlan threatened, “If ANYONE looks behind them, he or she will be expelled from the Protégés program on their last day.” The problem here was that he was dead serious. Our Prots were clueless why, and Shamlan was not planning on giving anyone an explanation. So our Prots did as they were told.
“Memory is a way of holding into the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.” – Kevin Arnold
Mohammed Al Munaiykh and Noura Al Hajeri were called onto the stage, to talk about our memories together during the Protégés program. Even the smallest incidents left a remarkable memory, and no memory created here at the Protégés could ever be repeated.
Shortly, Mohammed and Noura were called off of stage by Shamlan, and speeches were given by our mentors about their experiences with our Prots during the program. Next up, our Prots were individually called onto stage to talk about their experience at “The Proteges”. But our Prots were in for a surprise. Once our Prots were on stage, they then understood why Shamlan asked them not to look to the back of the room. Our families were sitting right behind us. Thank God for Mishari’s session!
A presentation was given by sisters Dalal and Sharifa Al Sulaiti, to inform our families on what we have been working on during the course of the program. This was then followed by a videoclip showing our journey at “The Proteges”.
Our day had now come to an end. That does not mean that it was the end of “The Protégés”. It’s only just the beginning to something big.
