50 Years 50 Faces

50 years of UAE-US friendship celebrated through 50 unique moments

This UAE Embassy storytelling campaign features contributions from well-known and lesser-known Emiratis and Americans, who share personal narratives and anecdotes that reflect on the breadth and depth of the UAE’s history and relations with the US. Their stories range from today to 50 years ago, and everywhere in between. We invite you to explore these unique moments and the deep friendship they represent. This is 50 Years | 50 Faces.
