Students take part in Food for Thought
The AUS Global Youth Leaders from the Student Leadership Program at American university of Sharjah (AUS) held a special event for on-campus students to debate and analyze contemporary issues entitled Food for Thought, on November 7, 2016.
The event aimed to integrate students from various backgrounds across AUS and engage them in various topics that would allow them to stay updated about global affairs and help promote their leadership skills. Participants were evaluated based on the logic of their argument as well as delivery style. Certificates and gift vouchers were awarded to the best contributors at the end of the event.
"The event let us think outside the box and from different perspectives. It gave me an opportunity to explore and discuss a global topic that impacts all of us while working hand in had with a team," said Faiza Hashim Ali, a junior majoring in mass communication.
"We encourage more students to take part in Food for Thought to develop their skills and knowledge. The ability to think critically is essential for students nowadays to remain updated with current global issues. In reality, the ability to analyze ideas and articulate views confidently and persuasively will set them apart in whatever fields they pursue," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
