SLP students attend Sandhurst leadership program
Five students from the AUS Student Leadership Program (SLP) took part in the Knowledge Bridges Program for Youth Leadership held August 5-15, 2018 at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, UK. This program was organized in collaboration with Sharjah for Capability Development, an entity of the Rubu’ Qarn Foundation for Creating Future Leaders and Innovators.
The AUS delegation consisted of Mohamed Al Marri, majoring in electrical engineering; Rawan Al Qadi, majoring in chemical engineering; Faisal Murad, majoring in industrial engineering; Hamda Al Hajri, majoring in business administration/management; and Mohamed Al Midfa, majoring in international relations.
Hamda Al Hajri, a senior student majoring in business administration/management said:
“It was a wonderful learning experience. I saw myself and the all the participants grow in such a short period. The interesting part was being offered a new perspective on leadership given our location at Sandhurst. We learned skills that we can utilize in our everyday life.”
Faisal Murad, a junior student majoring in industrial engineering, added:
“This leadership program is such a memorable experience in which I had the opportunity to learn different qualities that a leader should attain. These qualities need time and experience to grow. Therefore, I am motivated to develop these skills by using what I have been lectured about: time management, communication skills, and most importantly making other believe in me. I really liked this trip and would definitely recommend it for others to have this great insight about what is it like to be a leader. Outdoor activities were my favorite part of the whole program, and this was where we practiced the skills we learned in the lectures.”
Dr. Moza Alshehhi, Dean of Students, added:
“The Knowledge Bridges Program for Youth Leadership is a great opportunity for AUS students to learn the importance of diverse leadership. Students were highly motivated and encouraged to lead by example. We are pleased with the positive reviews received from students and look forward to future participation.
