Shaima Dallali (City Students’ Union Student of the Year)

Shaima this year has been an exceptional student volunteer, from her Presidency of the Palestinian Society to the countless events she has put on and worked with the Students’ Union to host. She has also worked extremely hard to develop the lives of so many students at City by helping empowering them. She was also elected as the National Union of Students' Delegate representing City nationally at the National Union of Students' Conference. There is no doubt the positive impact Shaima has had on the enhancement of City Students will be felt for years to come!

Ali Yasen’s commitment to City really pre-dates this year, having been a programme representative for his course for three years before, informing the school on how to improve the lives of the students he represented. As the Students’ Union Council Chair he was elected to hold the officer to account did so with such quality ensuring the SU executive team worked to its fullest. He also hosted the Optometry Society’s most successful eyeball working extremely hard and reaching out to find sponsors!
