Nahlah Ayed Prize for Student Leadership and Global Citizenship
When people think about making a change it often involves liking a Facebook page and giving more money to a cause. But for the winners of the Nahlah Ayed Prize for Student Leadership and Global Citizenship, Leslie “Katie” Muirhead and Anamika Anwesha, making the world a better place involves rolling up your sleeves and getting to work with community based organizations.
“Katie and Anamika exemplify the valuable contributions that our local and international students make to the global community, the province, and Winnipeg,” says Susie Taylor, Director, International Centre at the University of Manitoba. “Their vision, leadership, and dedication to community-building are inspiring. It’s wonderful to be able to acknowledge their work in this way, through Nahlah Ayed’s generosity.”
