CUE Students Meets The Pope

Basma Shukri, a CUE student within the College of International Relations and Economy, was invited to participate in the “Youth Conference” and the “Reunion of Aid Agencies for the Oriental Churches (ROACO)” where participating members got a special chance to meet the pope. Basma was invited to attend as a representative of Iraqi youth, conveying the challenges of youth in the region. 13 countries participated in this conference. Basma stated that she spoke with His Holiness Pope Francis and thanked him for his care for Iraqi Christians. Furthermore, this marked a “historical day” according to Basma, one that she will never forget. At CUE, we are proud of our students’ achievements, as we urge and support their advancement in their social and academic activities, shaping the future of our communities.
