The theater of Umm Al-Qura University resonated with inspiring success stories, loaded with positive messages and motivating advice for the female students who filled the King Abdulaziz Historical Hall to capacity. This activity was organized within the context of the third edition of the event held by the College of Applied Medical Sciences under the title of "The Platform for Female Speakers (FAMS)". The event was launched today amid the participation of influential figures from the Makkan community.
The speakers agreed that the beginning of success stories are often fraught with discouraging difficulties and frustrating challenges, which arise due to the society in general or because of missing the opportunities for achieving aspirations. This is especially the case when a person is exposed to health risks, as happened to some people at the beginning of their careers. On the other hand, the speakers stressed that persistence in overcoming obstacles, in addition to optimal planning and positivity, provide the keys for reaching the desired goals and accomplishments.
Her Excellency the Vice Dean of the College of Applied Medical Sciences, Dr. Ramia Sindi, clarified that the preparation of the program and the selection of the female speakers was made as a result of a survey of the female students about the most popular social figures among them. This also contributes to identifying the areas of interest of the female students, as well as measuring the extent of the influence that such personalities have on strengthening their ambitions and their ability to make creative changes in their academic journey and career path.
On her part, the Vice Dean of Educational Affairs and Development, Dr. Najwa Samraqandi, emphasized the importance of the diversity of the enrichment programs being offered to the female students, which adopt a narrative style that suits their interests and talents and are delivered in interactive ways, different from the traditional approach used in the lecture halls. The programs mainly demonstrate stories of accomplishments and successes that motivate the students to show creativity and excellence, whether at the academic or professional stage after graduation.
