My AGM Experience

Ms Zeynalova Ayan, an Azerbaijan student at MDIS pursuing the Bachelor (Hons) Degree in Arts from School of Fashion Design, awarded by Nottingham Trent University shares her experience in attending the MDIS 65th Annual General Meeting (AGM), and her excitement in winning the first prize at the AGM lucky draw.

“I always knew that the Annual General Meeting would be held once a year, usually at the MDIS auditorium. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year it was held virtually and live streamed via zoom. My friends and I were very excited about watching it online.  

It was very interesting for us to hear updates on MDIS Tashkent in Uzbekistan and the construction of the new four-storey building to be completed by September 2020.   The expansion included the set-up of a financial training centre, multi-purpose hall, fashion laboratory, and additional classroom facilities that would allow MDIS Tashkent to accommodate another 3,000 new students on its campus. Owing to MDIS Tashkent’s popularity as the first choice university, each year applications for admission to MDIS Tashkent keeps increasing.  Last year the capacity was 300 and the number of applicants were 4,000. 

I was indeed elated to receive an email informing me that I had won the first prize in the AGM lucky draw. I was even more excited when I heard it was a 32GB iPad (gold colour), which I liked very much. Being a fashion designer, the iPad is very useful for my research and collection of fashion design photos.   It also helps me in preparing my mood boards as well as my photoshoot details.  I am able to create presentations and plan my whole working process using the iPad.

Thank you, MDIS for this opportunity and a great memory from MDIS! 😊”
