By Tayiba Ahmed

Faces of AUS is American University of Sharjah (AUS) community platform that began in March 2015, as an initiative to encourage the AUS community to get to know each other better. The idea behind the site is that when people talk about themselves, they give the other community members an insight to who they are, and a chance for the rest of the AUS community to know them better.
