SLP students inspired by renowned UAE leaders at Mubadalah Youth Forum
Twenty students from the Student Leadership Program at American university of Sharjah (AUS) attended the Mubadalah Youth Forum in Abu Dhabi on September 24. Mubadalah Youth Forum is held annually and aims to raise awareness about the education and career pathways available to young Emiratis. The forum brings leading UAE figures together with youth, encouraging dialogue about the exciting fields and career paths available in the UAE.
Through a series of interactive sessions, students discovered marketplace insights and research that could help them with important decision making. From presentations involving personal anecdotes on the benefits and challenges associated with international experience, to fresh perspectives on unconventional professions, students gained more clarity about their future career path and received guidance to pursue their full potential.
"I was so lucky to have the opportunity to attend the Mubadala Youth Forum this year," said Najla Al Moalla, a senior majoring in management. "The forum was very well organized. The speakers were very inspiring and gave me a hint about what I would like to do in the future. They emphasized that any person should have a dream and should work on pursuing it."
"The forum was very interesting especially as it brings the leading UAE figures together with the youth. Their experiences were very encouraging and the discussions between different generations attracted my attention, especially the topics about the exciting fields and career paths available in the UAE," said Najla Al-Zarouni, a junior majoring in international studies.
"The Office of Student Affairs shapes future leaders; through our programs we focus on providing students with engaging and enriching experiences that combine professional, educational and cultural development. Mubadalah Youth Forum highlighted significant opportunities for our students and guided them to recognize their full potential," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
