In a remarkable feat, Saeed Rashed Al Mhairi, an Emirati child, has broken two world records before the age of five. His achievements are astounding because he accomplished these records at a tender age.
At the age of 4 years and 218 days, Saeed Rashed Almeria secured his first world record as the youngest person to publish a book in March 2023. Just 20 days later, he defied expectations by writing a sequel to his first book, earning him another world record. This time, he became the youngest person to publish a book series (male) at the age of 4 years and 238 days.
The Inspirational Journey
Saeed’s journey began with his older sister, Al Dhabi, who exhibited a passion for reading books from a very young age. She could identify letters and construct words when she was only three. Al Dhabi’s love for books extended beyond reading—she took it upon herself to inspire other children to read. Her heartwarming initiative involved sharing her collection of over 1,200 books with her peers, fostering a love for reading among them.
Al Dhabi’s accomplishments didn’t stop there. She set a Guinness World Record for the youngest publisher in Arabic and English at seven. Her “I Had an Idea” book sold 1,000 copies, further highlighting her commitment to inspiring children worldwide.
The Role of Al Dhabi in Saeed’s Journey
Saeed, the younger sibling, drew inspiration from his sister’s love for books and writing. At age four, he expressed his desire to write a book, just like Al Dhabi. Both his mother and Al Dhabi wholeheartedly supported his ambition.
Al Dhabi played a pivotal role in helping Saeed achieve his dream of publishing a book. She assisted him throughout the entire process, from conceptualization to publication. Remarkably, she provided her support without external assistance for writing or illustrations.
Saeed’s first book, “The Elephant Saeed and the Bear,” narrates the story of an elephant and a polar bear who choose friendship over a predator-prey relationship.
After his sister published her writings, Saeed expressed his wish to publish another book and wrote a sequel, earning him the title of the youngest person to publish a book series.
Empowering a Generation
Saeed’s mother emphasizes that their family’s goal is not merely to achieve personal milestones but to educate and inspire this generation. She firmly believes that all children, like her own, have the potential to achieve remarkable feats when provided with the right environment and encouragement.
She also hints at forthcoming surprises, including new books and initiatives designed to empower children and inspire them to reach their goals.
Saeed Rashed Almeria’s remarkable achievements at such a young age are a testament to the power of inspiration, support, and determination. His journey, fueled by his sister’s outstanding achievements, highlights the potential within every child when provided with the right environment. The Almeria family continues to pave the way for young talents and inspire children to dream big.
