An inspirational student who has helped to improve the lives of people around the world has scooped a prestigious prize.
University of Sheffield graduate Jahaan Abdurahman has helped to combat deforestation in Lesotho and give poverty-stricken women in Bolivia an income making thermal rescue blankets from crisp packets through her work with Enactus Sheffield.
The 23-year-old will be awarded the Chancellor’s Medal for her voluntary work at a ceremony next week.
Jahaan said she was ‘astounded’ to receive the award.
Previous winners include Sheffield’s Olympic golden girl and psychology graduate Jessica Ennis-Hill.
