In the opening ceremony of the World Cup, which has already been heavily criticized for the ongoing violations of human rights during the construction of the stadiums, and in Qatari society in general, the organization relied on the letter of inclusion to prove that Qatar is open to everyone.
On the home field, Morgan Freeman and Ghanem Al-Moftah appeared on the field. If the first name needs no introduction, then the second means nothing to most people. Who is the key anyway?
The Qatari businessman and influencer was born in 2002 with a rare genetic condition called caudal regression syndrome, which means his body does not grow from the bottom of his spine. But the key did not allow himself to be arrested.
Being the youngest businessman in Qatar, now 20 years old, he founded the chain of ice cream parlors in Gharisa even when he was still a minor, which he wants to expand to the entire Persian Gulf region.
Key also fuels his passion for sports, and has already expressed his desire to participate in the Paralympics several times. Swimming, diving, skateboarding, and hiking are some of his favorite sports, and he also achieved a great feat in climbing, as he managed to climb to the top of Jabal Shams in Oman, the highest mountain in the region. Despite this, his life is not easy at all, as he undergoes surgeries every year to improve his quality of life.
At birth, the average age of young entrepreneurs was 15, an estimate that has now been largely exceeded. In addition to these aspects, Key is a motivational speaker, seeking to convey a message of hope to those suffering from the same or similar conditions.
In the future, the young man who is currently studying political science wants to become a diplomat and Qatari ambassador to the world. Judging by his attendance at the opening ceremony of one of the most controversial World Cups ever, he’s on a good path.
