SLP student participates in Net Impact Conference in Minnesota
Maged Shoman, an active student in the Student Leadership Program (SLP) at American University of Sharjah (AUS), participated in the Net Impact Conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, November 6-8, 2014.
The Net Impact Conference is a leading conference for students and professionals who want to address social and environmental problems, focusing on forward thinking and exploring creative solutions to transform the world.
"It was a great honor and privilege for me to participate in the conference. Besides the engagement in discussions that tackled real-world social and environmental problems, it strongly contributed towards developing our leadership skills, diplomacy techniques and methods for tackling the toughest problems creatively," said Shoman, a senior student majoring in civil engineering. "The three-day conference left me inspired, motivated and more passionate about contributing a positive change in my community. Now, I am honored to be a member of the Global Net Impact family. I thank the Student Leadership Program for their encouragement and support with such fruitful opportunities."
"Our world is facing many challenges ahead and we have faith that our students are going to work for a sustainable future. The Net Impact Conference inspired Maged through the networking sessions, interactive panels and workshops. He came back ready to make a difference and we in the Office of Student Affairs will support student ideas that have positive outcomes," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
