Pharmacy student Dalal Ghanim from Utrecht has won the UAF Audience Award. The Audience Award symbolises the competences and perseverance of refugees who build new futures here. On 5 October, Foundation for Refugee Students UAF announced that musicians Karoun Baghboudarian and Rani Elias won the UAF Award.
The UAF devotes itself to the development of fled students and professionals, and for their integration into the Dutch job market. With the election, the UAF offers a platform to talented refugees who stand out because of their dedication, their study and work performances, and their contributions to society. They also ask for attention for the great effort refugees put into shaping their own futures at the same time, something that often goes unnoticed.
