My journey of 4 years has been a continuous process of growth, self-development, and professional development. Starting from my enrolment, I was ready to take challenges and learn through the best resources the campus had provided. Learning through many different stages of development, it started from curiosity and began anxiety to figure my way out. The struggle was the key to lead me towards the confidence and knowledge I gained. The faculty support and guidance lead me to fit my roots stronger and stand out to reach the success I have today. The college and my department have up built me to be a responsible professional and my journey not only was restricted to learning but also had moments to cherish and laugh. Being in an unfortunate situation of graduating in a year when the pandemic hit the world had affected the plans of my final semester, however, together the students and the faculty collaborated and thus we could accomplish even in hard times. I was the first batch that celebrated their graduation a year later to the actual date. I was more than thankful to my department to make my dreams come true.
The UOS journey has been nothing short of life changing for me. I have learnt a lot of valuable life skills and lessons during my four years here. The most valuable assets of the university are the professors and they have been very helpful and supportive throughout my journey. All of them come from diverse backgrounds with rich experience and amazing stories to tell some of which were truly jaw dropping. The key notable experiences for me would be winning first prize in the poster competition which was fun and the final year projects. Exciting and filled with challenges, it helped me understand my interest in research and gave me a solid grounding for it which helps me to this day. An even more hands-on learning experience was when had to our internship project at various hospitals where we got to learn the function of the different departments such as human resources, customer service, quality department, medical records and so on. With regards to what is available at the University, the place has remarkable educational (laboratories, libraries, computing centers etc.) and recreational (sports area, health club with Olympic size pool) facilities, and I could make full use of it during my time there. Because of the immense support I received, I got an opportunity to work as a research assistant and currently I am doing my Master’s in Public Health at the University of Leeds in UK. This would not have possible without University of Sharjah. To those that are considering applying here I say ‘’Go for it, I discovered myself here. And I am sure you will too.’’ 😊
I feel proud and honored as university of Sharjah graduate, moments pass by and I remember the classes, buildings, activities, professors, friends and classmates and I would do anything to live the moments back then and enjoy and understand how valuable it was to be a university of Sharjah student. I regret not living the journey, I would wish to go back there and enjoy every second of it.
Great department, great academic supervisors, great professors that are always supportive to us and count us as one of their family members. I wish I can go back and live so many moments in my professor’s classes. It was long, valuable and deep journey that taught me to express and figure out who am I as a person, what my values are, what I like, what I can and I can’t do, and what type of a person I want to be in future. A very valuable and touching times and memories that I wish to capture.
Thank you very much, I feel blessed and thankful for everything I went through in university of Sharjah. Hoping to continue my educational journey there.

Wrapping up my senior year of college is bittersweet. It is nearly an emotional rollercoaster experience.
It is hard to fully acknowledge that this the last time I am doing everything. It is hard to acknowledge that I will no longer have assignments to work on, topics to research, or deadlines to meet.
My world revolved around my studies for the past four years. But today, everything changes. Today, I begin a new chapter of my life. I know this new chapter may hold some unfavorable situations for me, but I know I will overcome them as long as I am working hard to.
Leaving UOS with an undergraduate degree "HEALTH SERVICE ADMINISTRATION" allows me to enjoy the privilege of gaining a huge foothold in the market.
I have reached the end of my college chapter and now I am off to good start!
I will forever cherish my experience at UOS!
