“The Cairo International Model Arab League (CIMAL) taught me that communication and inclusivity are key to a successful organization that positively contributes to the entire community.”
Aly Amer, political science and integrated marketing communication, CIMAL head delegate
“By putting me on a platform for change, the Cairo International Model United Nations (CIMUN) provided me with a safe environment to debate and fight for issues that I believe in, while simultaneously exposing me to new issues that I was unaware of.”
Omar Zaky, political science, CIMUN secretary-general
“Being at Volunteers in Action (VIA), in whatever position, is a great experience. During the four years I spent with VIA, I learned a lot of things. Most importantly, I learned that a very small act can change someone’s life. In fact, VIA has been my energy booster for these years; the happiness that we see in the eyes of the people whom we help, especially orphans, gives us the motivation to keep our spirit and passion for the club’s activities. I will be forever grateful for being part of this big family one day, and as we always say, “Once a VIAn, Always a VIAn.”
Mariam Gad, marketing, VIA president
“Working in the Robotix Club showed me what it means to hold a responsibility, to dream, to plan and to execute what you see as beneficial. I saw how organizations can grow and prosper. I valued the human capital and power of connections. The club showed me how people work very hard when they have a dream that they believe in. The experience has changed a lot in my personality. Thanks to AUC for having such diverse clubs that suit everyone.”
Mohamed AbdelShafi, electronics and communications engineering, Robotix Club’s vice president for operations
