- Wednesday, 8 November 2017
Middlesex University Dubai's first-year journalism students were given an early taste of life in the industry as they attended the 2017 International Conference of Sports for Women (ICSW) in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
The event brought together a number of inspirational speakers from the world of sport, including Saudi climber Raha Moharrak - the first Arab woman to summit Everest - and UAE figure skater and Zahra Lari, who became the first person to compete in international competition wearing a hijab.
Middlesex Dubai students conducted interviews alongside national organisations including Sky News Arabia, The National and Abu Dhabi Media at the conference - gaining valuable hands-on journalism experience in the process.
