If you have seen the latest tweet by Dubai Ruler, then you probably have been one in thousands of social media users who wished they were that little girl.
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE, and Ruler of Dubai retweeted a video of a little girl mimicking one of the sentences he previously said in a speech, and expressed his desire to meet her.
"This little girl impressed me, god bless her. I want to visit her, does anyone know who she is?" said Shaikh Mohammed's tweet.
Yes, we do! She is Muhra Ahmed Al Shehi, a 6-year-old first grader at the Sharjah Model School for Girls.
The girl did not expect that her video, which was meant to be a rehearsal for her school assembly, to reach His Highness. The original post on Instagram has garnered over 41,000 views and 353 comments, since it was posted yesterday.
"She's extremely happy, she can't believe it," her aunt Tasnim Al Fawalsi told Khaleej Times over the phone.
The girl was practicing for a game at her assembly school called "Who said this statement," that she was supposed to ask to a wondering audience.
Al Fawalsi, who runs the girl's Instagram that now has over 55,000 followers, said the family posted the video as the girl was at school.

She said that the family got contacted by the office of His Highness who are now expecting a visit from Dubai Ruler. However, she did not reveal the time of the visit.
"We did not expect the post to reach His Highness but we are very glad it did," said Al Fawalsi.
Al Shehi, known to her followers with her outgoing and cute personality, is now flying out of happiness. Having previously met His Highness Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Sharjah Ruler and Member of the UAE Supreme Council, she is looking forward for her next Royal meeting.
From Al Fawalsi's point of view, His Highness must have admired the fact that even children hold the same vision he does for his people.
"As Emiratis, we hold the same vision the government has: which is to be the top. His Highness must have loved to see that even young children express his same thought," said Al Fawalsi.
