AUS student shares his experience on how to be successful at AUS
Husam Badi, a team leader and active student at AUS, delivered a lecture entitled "How to AUS? A quirky insight into your life as an AUS student," on October 23. The lecture was held under the AUS Student Lecture Series by the Office of Student Affairs' Student Leadership Program.
The lecture demonstrated Badi's involvement in various extracurricular opportunities offered by the university to shape students' personalities, widen their knowledge and improve their interpersonal skills. Badi explained how participating in activities on and off campus have made him a stronger and more independent individual. From sport teams to leadership conferences and student employment opportunities, Badi urged his peers to get out of their comfort zone and dig into real-life experiences.
"I was lucky as a freshman to get excellent guidance which helped me achieve many goals and enjoy my university life at the same time," said Badi, who is a senior majoring in finance. "It was my duty to guide my younger peers so they may do it even better than I have done. Keep paying it forward!" he added.
"It was really great to listen to someone like Hussam, who has always been a great inspiration to us. The lecture gave us the student perspective on how to best achieve different goals at AUS and also made us realize how much we are missing out if we aren't making the best of our AUS experience. I think the Student Lecture Series is a great platform for us to hear about successful student-life stories and to get tips from our peers, and I look forward to many more of them," said Rahsi Shafana, a junior student majoring in economics.
"The Student Leadership Program always encourages students to share their experiences and achievements with the community," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students. "Hussam's lecture was inspirational and demonstrated how he has made the most of his life at AUS and taken advantage of the various opportunities offered which helped him develop as an individual," she added.
