We just published one of our most special interviews. Umran Beba.

While every woman I have the privilege to write about holds a special place in my heart, Umran Beba’s story stands out for a remarkable reason: her husband, Ali Beba. He deserves recognition for his unwavering support throughout her journey. It’s a rare sight indeed, which is why his choices stand as an exemplary model for men everywhere.

His story is a remarkable tale of unwavering support, boundless vision, and transformative impact. It unfolds not just in the halls of academia but in the hearts and minds of all who have had the privilege of knowing him.

As the most potent supporter of his wife, Prof. Beba’s journey has been one of steadfast dedication and unwavering commitment. From Hong Kong to the United Arab Emirates, he stood by her side, offering his love and encouragement, keen insight, and visionary leadership everywhere they went. While Umran Beba pursued her passions and ambitions, Prof. Beba created a vision for the countries they called home, leaving an indelible mark on academic environments and entrepreneurial landscapes globally.

Prof. Beba’s dedication to nurturing young minds and fostering innovation shines brightly. Here, amidst the hustle and bustle of the academic world, he discovered a passion for empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs and change-makers. With his gentle demeanor and unwavering support, he has become a trusted mentor to countless students, guiding them along their path to success with wisdom and compassion.

I am grateful for the remarkable souls we’ve crossed paths with. Dear Ali Beba is one of them, and it is for both my husband and me.

Prof. Beba’s impact has been felt far and wide throughout his journey. As a mentor and guide, he has nurtured the talents and aspirations of countless individuals, instilling in them the skills, confidence, and vision they need to succeed in an ever-changing world. From economy to technology, professional services to social entrepreneurship, the people he has mentored are rocking the world; their success is proof of his enduring influence.

But perhaps Prof. Beba’s greatest legacy lies not in the accolades or achievements he has amassed but in the lives he has touched and the minds he has transformed. With compassion and wisdom, he has changed the trajectory of countless lives, unlocking the potential within each individual and inspiring them to reach for greatness.

In a world hungry for visionaries and leaders, he is a shining example of what is possible when we lead with integrity, compassion, and a genuine desire to make a difference.

His legacy serves as an inspiration, empowering generations and highlighting the transformative influence of support, vision, and mentorship. Yet, above all, his unwavering belief in “Family First” remained his most crucial principle.

He told me a thought-provoking insight: “Whenever Umran has an opportunity, I ask myself if I would seek my wife’s approval if I were in her shoes, contemplating a move to another country. Gender is irrelevant in this scenario; we stand as equals. If I had to relocate, she would accompany me. Likewise, I would stand by her side if she had to move. And that’s what I did.”

And now, I have a question for everyone: Wouldn’t you say he deserves a round of hearty, standing ovation-worthy applause?
