"I congratulate our students for being appointed in a very special role in the Sharjah Youth Council," AUS Dean of Students Moza Al Shehhi said. "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."
