EducationI graduated from New York University Abu Dhabi in December 2016 with a degree in Psychology and minors in Literature and Creative Writing. Over my four years as an undergraduate, I have accumulated academic and professional experience in 7 countries. I have further contributed to several advocacy and leadership initiatives on and off campus.
I am currently working as a Research Analyst with Dubai Cares, a philanthropic establishment that aims to ensure all children have access to quality education. I believe in the power of education to concretely transform every aspect of our lives. This belief has led me to pursue opportunities where I can engage with students and guide them through their learning journeys. I value collaborative approaches to teaching. where quality interactions between teacher and tutor set the foundation through which learning and growth can happen.
