The HCT-Abu Dhabi Men’s campus (ADM) was graced with the presence of HE Mohammed Abdul Jalil Al Fahim, author of the widely-read “From Rags to Riches-A story of Abu Dhabi”, who visited the campus as part of his tour of UAE educational institutions.
His Excellency is a strong advocate of education and was keen to reinforce the importance of education and self-development to the young students.
During the visit to ADM, HE gave a fascinating talk to the students, faculty and staff about the difference between education in the past and the present, as well as the past challenges and obstacles faced in this area. He also spoke about his famous book, which is a narration of his personal experience in life and education, inside and outside the UAE and an account of the struggles that accompanied Abu Dhabi’s development into modern nationhood.
“I wish I could join you in college to learn all over again,” he said to the highly appreciative and captive audience.
At the conclusion of his visit, His Excellency held a book signing and happily posed for group photographs with the students.
Eng. Abdu Rahman Al Jahoushi, ADM Director, proudly presented His Excellency with a gift in recognition for his constructive efforts, dedicated to encouraging and inspiring the youth to prepare them for their future journey in education and thinking.
