Every year MCU chooses one student to honor for her excellence in study and contribution to the field of midwifery. We are pleased to announce that the Student of the Year for 2013-2014 is Aisha Al Hajjar.
“Aisha Al Hajjar has been a very conscientious student, setting goals and working systematically to achieve them. She is able to take academic learning and apply it to real life situations and needs. Her interest is always to advance the care of women.”
“Aisha is, by far, one of the best students I have had the pleasure of working with. Her commitment to learning, her passion for social change, and her dedication to inclusive and equitable midwifery are truly inspiring. Aisha remains an “above and beyond” student in every sense of the phrase: her written assignments are always polished; her verbal contributions articulate and insightful; and her commitment to not only her own learning, but the learning of her peers outstanding. I can always count on Aisha to push conversations during interaction sessions to the next level of critical thought and reflection, and I count her as not only a student, but a colleague. She is an excellent educator in her own right, and remains humble in all that she does. I cannot think of a more deserving individual for this year’s Student of the Year award than Aisha.”
Congratulations, Aisha and all of our students. We are so thrilled at the wonderful student body that continues to strengthen the culture of excellence at MCU and ripple out into the midwifery world.
