Soahib is the definition of a leader. He started his tenure with only two team members and several long-standing projects that needed support after a near full-team graduation. Through his entrepreneurial spirit he built Enactus Lambton College from the ground up from 2 members to 60 members in one year, ensuring continued growth and success. 

His efforts have set Enactus Lambton College up for continued growth and success: building team structure and culture, securing project funding, developing team members, and being a true ambassador for mental health. 

The Student Leader of the Year award is designed to recognize the leader or president who has made the most outstanding contribution to their Enactus team, supporting and advancing the team’s success. The award announcement took place today at the 2024 Enactus Canada National Exposition.
