AUS students attend the Mohammed bin Zayed Majlis for Future Generations
Students from American University of Sharjah (AUS) attended the Mohammed bin Zayed Majlis for Future Generations held recently under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Executive Council of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The main aim of the summit was to empower Emirati university students to fulfill their aspirations for themselves and their country and understand how they can help in building a better future. The summit also focused on introducing national unity and pride, encouraging civic engagement, and highlighting the skills needed to be successful leaders and entrepreneurs in the 21st economy.
"I am glad to have participated in the Mohammed bin Zayed Majlis for Future Generations," said Aysha Alsharhan, a senior majoring in industrial engineering. "We got to attend lectures, interactive sessions and workshops held by the most prominent figures and organizations in the UAE, thus, allowing us to familiarize ourselves with the current market trends, get guidance on what to do after university, and explore possible career choices. Not only that, but the talks and especially that by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed emphasized the role of youth in UAE's society, inviting us to participate in making a change for the better and motivating us to be the best we can be for the sake of our country," she added.
"The Mohamed bin Zayed Majlis for Future Generations focused on the importance of dialogue and the value of exchange of ideas. The summit aided our students in ways to find solutions for the various issues that can impact future societies. We highly recommend other students to take advantage of such opportunities and look forward to participating in the event next year," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
