With the support of her family, she leads her teams of horses that practice various sports and other activities in Dubai and England. In June 2012, she attained the Bronze Standard of the International Award for Young People, and the following year she was awarded a high school diploma with distinction when graduating from Latifa School for Girls. She is continuing her education by majoring in international studies at Zayed University. Tajaarub is Sheikha Hissa’s first book.
