02 – Suhaila Al Dhaheri, the Student Rep’

Suhaila, 21, studies law at Paris Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi. She has already run several elections and represented her peers in different organisations, including her university’s student council and the Emirates Youth Council.
In a country that has organised the first parliamentary elections of its history little more than a decade ago, she is part of this new generation of Emiratis contributing to their country’s journey towards more public participation. Suhaila embraces the future with optimism and is eager to make a change, but her Al Ain bedouin roots are also very important to her.
