NYUAD students are supported throughout their education.
Each year, one third of NYUAD graduates go on to graduate school, more than any Ivy League institution. Students get help through all stages of the process — from defining their interests and goals to choosing the right school and perfecting their application.
I identify myself as a globally minded person and NYUAD made me even more connected with people from all over.
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.
As a student leader of a European student interest group I got the opportunity to organize various events and debates on current events in Europe.
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.
Every day I draw upon the different topics I got exposed to in NYU Abu Dhabi, from Brechtian Theater to the Arab Spring.
I am focusing on education: understanding educational institutions, and analyzing policies.
I knew one thing as I approached graduation: I wanted to continue working with Arabic texts and explore the different genres of Arabic texts.
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.
The most interesting thing is that being away from home has made me more conscious of being an American.
