QSA very active in volunteering: Najla.

Malek Helali Doha THE Qatari Students Association (QSA) at Texas A&M University in Qatar is giving students the chance to officially deal with large reputable companies to get funding and sponsorships for their projects and events, according to QSA Vice-President Najla Badar. Speaking to Qatar Tribune, Badar explained that QSA is most active in the area of volunteering since most members prefer to do extracurricular activities to improve their CVs and communication skills. She added that the association organises events targeting non-Qatari students and university staff in order to promote Qatar's culture. Commenting on her personal experience in being a member of the association, the Qatari Students Association vice-president said:"This whole process is like a simulation of the real-world working life. I have grown so much in different ways ever since I joined the association. The experiences I went through exposed me to different problems and improved my critical thinking skills." "Joining a large association and leading more than 70 members taught me the art of dealing with people coming from different mentalities and backgrounds. Overall, it helped me become a better version of myself," she added.
