Non-Scientific Conferences

In 2011, I participated in an International event, the Worldwide Alumni Association of AUB Second MENA Regional Meeting, as a guest speaker, representing alongside three of my colleagues from Outlook Newspaper, the AUB Student Body. My presentation discussed “The Importance and Method of implementation of Mentorship at AUB”.
