This was a beautiful first occasion bringing together BLA alumni, and we thank Mr Mazen Salha and Mrs Bushra Salha for their generosity in hosting it. The eleven alumni who came were very happy to meet, and spontaneously began offering each other professional advice and support, as well as forming or renewing friendships.
All of them encouraged us to continue with more events and more connectivity. For those of us from the BLA Scholarship Committee who were there, it was as always a huge pleasure to encounter the dynamism and drive of this talented group of young Lebanese, as well as their kindness and warmth. We definitely want to develop and continue this initiative, and hope to reach many more alumni in the future. James Watt, Chairman of the British Lebanese Association Scholarship Committee
