Last Friday, May 6th, Khouala Mihoubi received the overseas student’s prize from the Royal Air Force College. Established in Cranwell, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom as the world’s first air academy in 1916, the college awards this prize to the foreign cadet with the best overall performance in leadership, officer qualities and professional studies.
Khaoula outperformed 6 other international students thus winning the award which consists of a golden plaque bearing the College arms.
Born in Sakiet Sidi Youssef (Le Kef), Khaoula had a remarkable academic track before going to RAF College Cranwell. She was a former student at Borj El Amri Aviation School, National Superior School of Engineers of Tunis and ISAE-Supaero in Toulouse.
“I always see those who raised the flag of Tunisia all over the world and it always makes me proud to be Tunisian. But this time I raised the flag by myself”. There were touching words she published on her Facebook account following this accomplishment.
Congratulations Khaoula for putting the tunisian flag high, right where it belongs !
