International Business Student Wins National Award
According to FITT's website, "this award goes to the student selected by the awards committee who has [demonstrated] a combination of community involvement and academic success. The award is open to all students attending a FITT educational partner institution."
"Amani's academic performance has been strong with a first semester GPA of 3.93," said Murray Morgan, coordinator of Fanshawe's International Business Management program. "She has capitalized on her personal experiences, family and contacts in the Middle East and Europe to add interest to in-class presentations and projects. During a class project, Amani's thorough research identified two significant business development opportunities for Jones Packaging in Sweden and Germany. The business owners, President and Vice-President Sales and Marketing acknowledged her efforts as being very relevant to their business."
"Amani has networked well with external organizations and has participated in sessions with the Organization for Women in International Trade, the London Economic Development Corporation and the new Rotaract Club at Fanshawe," continued Morgan. "Amani has contributed to the community through her volunteer efforts with the International Red Cross and the London Cross Cultural Learning Centre. She has been a positive advocate for the International program and represented the program at several education fairs, and at King's University College."
