Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SAN DIEGO: ‘Al-Wi­hda’ group won the elec­tion of the Na­tional Union Kuwaiti Stu­dents (NUKS) USA branch, which was held in San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia late on Fri­day. The run­ners for the race this year were Al-Wi­hda and Stu­dent Fu­ture.

The past year ‘Al-Wi­hda’ won by 350 votes’ dif­fer­ence, as com­pared to 360 in the new polling. Over 4,440 stu­dents reg­is­tered to par­tic­i­pate in the 32nd an­nual Con­fer­ence of NUKS themed “Kuwait’s dream is ful­filled with us,” where more than 5,000 Kuwaiti stu­dents showed up.

Kuwaiti Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Dr Bader Al-Essa at­tended the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the con­fer­ence, along with Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to the US Sheikh Salem Al-Ab­dul­lah Al-Sabah whom both urged in their speeches to shun sec­tar­i­an­ism and trib­al­ism while par­tic­i­pat­ing in the vot­ing process.

Work­shop

The Na­tional Project for Small and Medium Size En­ter­prises (Mubader) held here late Fri­day a work­shop on the side­lines of the 32nd con­fer­ence for the US branch of the Na­tional Union for Kuwaiti Stu­dents (NUKSUS). The project’s CEO Abrar AlMa­soud told KUNA that the work­shop fo­cused on en­abling and teach­ing Kuwaiti stu­dents how to es­tab­lish their own small projects prior to their grad­u­a­tion, adding that be­gin­ning early would ben­e­fit both the busi­ness own­ers and the fu­ture prospects of Kuwait.

She said that the project was keen in par­tak­ing in the con­fer­ence held here, af­firm­ing that this par­tic­i­pa­tion was in line with the Kuwaiti lead­er­ship’s call for sup­port­ing small busi­ness projects. The NUKS con­fer­ence opened last Thurs­day by Min­is­ter Essa. The event’s main theme fo­cuses on stu­dents’ role in achiev­ing Kuwait’s de­vel­op­ment goals. — KUNA
