JALANDHAR: The United Nations (UN) has decorated BTech Mechanical Engineering international student of LPU, Sm Sammam Sakti Ibn Sahadat, with the coveted title of “The Most Aspiring Youth Activist & Global Youth Leader”.

Congratulating the promising international student, Additional Director at LPU’s Division of International Affairs, Mr Aman Mittal shares: “In present era, the world is undergoing rapid changes & transformation; and, the youth has turned out to be a new face of the society. Sammam is such an international face in our university, who has made LPU glow globally in a big and radiating manner through his dedication and devotion towards varied social causes.”
