In celebration of Omani Youth Day, the National Bank of Oman (NBO) lined up a number of fun-filled performances, games, and activities at its headquarters in Azaiba. The bank played the role of the financial advisor, sharing ways in which to best navigate the financial expenses of adulthood.

Oman Parkour amazed the crowd, while home-grown Abbas Al Lawati tickled their funny bone with his stand-up comedy act.

Ahmad Al Harthy expressed, “It is always invigorating to be among young people who are so passionate about changing the world in their own way. Day in and day out, I race – it’s what I do for a living and it isn’t easy. But I love it. To achieve my goals, I need to train for hours a day, I need to remain committed and not give up, I need to stay focused and keep my head in the game. It is the path I chose for myself, and I won’t give up until I have reached my dreams. This is my message to young people: ask yourself ‘what is the purpose of my life?’. Find your passion to follow it without any compromise.”
