An Etihad Airways' Emirati technical engineering trainee was the recipient of the Abu Dhabi Industry Award for academic excellence which aims to encourage academic performance in UAE National students.
Muna Mohamed Al Hadharem joined the Etihad Airways technical engineering program in 2009 out of her love for flying and aviation. Her high ambitions, excellent academic and attendance records and perseverance have all been factors in her winning the award.
"I first attended the Abu Dhabi Industry Awards Ceremony in 2009 and I decided back then that one day I was going to win one of these awards, and here I am today!" she said, adding: "I have worked extremely hard to reach this point thanks in large part to the support of my family, teachers, and mentors in Etihad Airways.
"I plan to continue studying and hopefully one day travel to the USA to pursue my dream of studying astronomy and conduct studies that will benefit the UAE. I can only hope my accomplishment encourages many of my Emirati sisters and brothers to push the boundaries and reach their goals." Etihad Airways' Chief Operations Officer, Richard Hill, said: "Etihad Airways is committed to developing a skilled and qualified cadre of Emirati engineers to join its technical division. We are extremely proud of all our trainees and especially of Muna who is considered a leader in our expanding Emirati female engineers' community and a role model for her colleagues to follow." – Emirates News Agency, WAM
