Special award for business minded student

COLLEGE student Danielle Hughes was a winner at the Bridge 2 Business Enterprise Awards 2022 for her enterprise activities.

She won the special recognition award for the work she has done to promote the organisation’s initiatives to her fellow students in Dumfries and Galloway.

In doing so, she has worked closely with Young Enterprise Scotland and has particularly championed the #FemaleBoss, Social Innovators Challenge, and Barcelona ERASMUS programmes.

She is credited as having created and facilitated enterprise focussed workshops that provide students with guidance and help them build their confidence.

As the student association vice president at Dumfries and Galloway College, Danielle has taken the lead in the Wellbeing Enterprise project, an initiative aimed at helping students develop their ideas to improve student mental and physical health in creative ways.

She said: “I am thrilled to have won this award; it means so much to me.

“As a team, we are incredibly proud of the work we have done and I couldn’t have won this award without the help and support of my colleagues.

“Promoting enterprise on our campus is one of my main passions and this award will encourage me to continue doing so for the benefit of our whole student population.”

And college leaders have expressed their pride in her achievements and applauded her for her tireless dedication to improving the student experience.

Principal Joanna Campbell said: “Danielle is a shining example of someone putting our college values into practice each and every day.

“Her commitment to fostering an inclusive and enterprising atmosphere for her fellow students is to be admired.

“My colleagues and I, alongside the entire Dumfries and Galloway College, are delighted to send our heartfelt congratulations.”

The Bridge 2 Business Enterprise Awards are a celebration of ‘all things business’ across colleges in Scotland.

They recognise and reward students, teachers, and individuals who are leading the way in enterprise.
