Student Stories

Sophie Arni

I identify myself as a globally minded person and NYUAD made me even more connected with people from all over.

Ahlam Al Qasim

I followed my passion and did what I enjoyed, and that is why I ended up where I am today. Pour your heart and soul into your passion, and everything else will fall into place on its own.

Gabriel Figueroa Torres

My worldview and my approach to learning changed radically when I was in Abu Dhabi. They have continued to change here in Singapore in ways I couldn’t have imagined.

Batu Aytemiz

Every day I draw upon the different topics I got exposed to in NYU Abu Dhabi, from Brechtian Theater to the Arab Spring.

Myungin Sohn

I knew one thing as I approached graduation: I wanted to continue working with Arabic texts and explore the different genres of Arabic texts.

Juan Felipe Beltran

I’m a big believer in the idea that your biggest growth does not come only from your teachers but from the people you go through experiences with.
