Eight AUS students appointed in Sharjah Youth Council
Eight students from American University of Sharjah have been appointed recently to serve as youth ambassadors in the Sharjah Youth Council. The students were nominated by the university's Office of Student Affairs to the Sharjah Executive Council on the basis of their academic standing and their experiences in the extracurricular field.
A total of 15 students were appointed to form the Sharjah Youth Council. Eight students were from AUS and seven were from University of Sharjah.
The AUS student appointees are Sultan Alqasimi, junior, computer science; Harith Al Midfa, senior, mechanical engineering; Salim Alowais, graduate student, engineering systems management; Sultan Alshamsi, freshman, finance; Noora Alqasemi, graduate student, industrial engineering; Fatima Alshamsi, junior, visual communication; Fatima Binashour, senior, industrial engineering; and Rawda Alsuwaidi, junior, chemical engineering.
"I congratulate our students for being appointed in a very special role in the Sharjah Youth Council. With our students' talents and experiences in performing lead roles in extracurricular activities, I am confident that they possess the requisite skills to deliver more than what is expected from them. I wish them good luck and I encourage them to perform their best to represent the youth of Sharjah and contribute to the development of the UAE as a whole," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
The Sharjah Youth Council was set up by the Sharjah Executive Council as part of a national effort to activate and bolster the role of the youth and their contribution in the UAE's development process. It is the aim of the UAE government to provide a conducive environment that promotes the capabilities of the youth, flourish their ideas, and boost their abilities and contributions towards achieving the country's goals.
