Good News for the University of York as York Student Was Shortlisted for Asian Young Achiever Awards (YAYAs)
YAYA, also known as the Asian Young Achiever Awards, was introduced in 2020, where young and talented youth between the age of 16-30 are awarded for their achievements. In addition, this prestigious reward is applicable only for those students who are part of South Asian heritage or reside in Yorkshire as a student or working employee.
In the present scenario, YAYA was rewarded to all the eligible candidates in the presence of 250 guests at the Cedar Court Hotel in Bradford despite the inaugural event held online due to pandemic issues. In addition, Dr. Mohammed Ali OBE, Founder & Chief Executive of QED Foundation, who’s responsible for organizing YAYA, also stated that he’s truly amazed to witness such a massive population of audience and achievers at one time.
Above all, the essential part of this segment is that ‘University of York’ rose to fame in YAYA as one of their student Ruhee Dawood(23) was nominated for YAYAs Achievement in School/College award category for guiding in STEM subjects, along with other 33 shortlisted candidates, commencing from Keighley to Rotherham to York. She was also allocated with Sharifah Sofia Albukhary Scholarship for pursuing chemistry at the University of York.
This time the event was significant for the University of York. This event was more successful in comparison to an online event held last year. The bright smile on the achiever’s face said it all when the anchor announced their names from the stage, and all this was not witnessed in the online program.
All the applications from Yorkshire were awe-inspiring as everyone had done something phenomenal and truly deserved a reward for their genuine efforts. It was also seen that all the entries were inspirational, and candidates had struggled a lot to achieve such fabulous marks in their lives. Everything sounded pure and honest to the audience. Listening to someone achieve what they wished for gave immense joy everyone’s heart.
Furthermore, the nominee list also included a female cricketer whose birthplace was a Bangladeshi refugee camp, a young entrepreneur who built her property business ownself, a TV actor auditioning for Hollywood, and a doctor who’s into making drone videos. In the end, the entire function was found to be entertaining as it was hosted by BBC TV, Radio presenter and stand-up comedian Noreen Khan, Professor Akbar Ahmed (Chairman of Islamic studies at American University and former Pakistani High Commissioner to the UK), who made the program just worth the watch.
