The city government has come up with a resolution commending a WMSU student, Nurfahada Pula Jailani, for bringing pride and honor to Zamboanga being the voice of teenage girls around the world during the International Forum on “the Power of an Educated Girl” held last September at the historic Apollo Theatre in New York City.

Resolution No. 1461 states “it is a great pride for every Zamboangue?o to see Ms. Jailani who was chosen from thousands and millions of girls in this world to sit and join the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, the former Australian Prime Minister Julia Guillard, and girl advocate Charlize Theron on stage during the forum of ‘the Power of an Educated girl’”.

Also with Jailani on stage was the Glamour Magazine Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive. The forum was presented by Maybelline New York and Glamour Magazine. It aimed to stress out the essence of education among the teenagers around the globe.

Jailani is a student of the Western Mindanao State University under the College of Social Work and Community Development. She is also an active advocate of women empowerment and was the 2015 Plan International Girls Advocate.

Jailani did not only bring pride and glory to her University but also to the entire city as well. This is not the first time the city government commended a WMSU student. It can be recalled that in mid-2015, The city council also passed Resolutions 892 and 893 commending two Crimson students who were awarded as 2015’s Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines namely Khenn Arquiza and Fharnieza Mohammad. — Ella Cruz-PAO, WMSU
