challenging years in NYUAD
The opportunities of traveling and language learning are immense temptations to a language-learning enthusiast such as me. I have been a self-taught language learner since seven and have by now learned English, Spanish, German, and a little bit of Japanese. At the thought of the global outreach that I will be able to do, from having all these students plucked from around the world, will allow these insights that I think will be unparalleled. The continent-bridging Abu Dhabi offers me a multicultural environment and a window to people from all walks of life.
I yearn to immerse myself with extensive knowledge and insights into a broad range of world cultures by studying away programs for my mind to flourish. I would be thrilled if I can do a study away at Madrid to immerse myself in Spanish culture and continue my journey as a Spanish learner since 7th grade. Hopefully, my horizon will be widened, my map will be full of questions. - What else haven't I seen? What else don't I know? -.
I imagine courses in NYUAD bring a level of education that is really unparalleled in the Middle East. I'm attracted to the school especially because I think NYUAD has invariably prided itself on being both worldly and westernized, but at the same time, it reflects the fact that it is in Abu Dhabi. Taken the geographic advantage of NYUAD along with my interests in culture and language, I would like to take curriculums in Cultural Exploration and Analysis and to study Arabic. However, I am open to any future possibilities I might come across. I am looking forward to further exploring my aptitude during the first year in NYUAD.
I learned in the final year of high school that being close to your teachers and being in a classroom with a smaller amount of bodies was really helpful for learning. So I am really excited about seeing that connection in action as NYUAD is so tightly knitted.
I am convinced that it will be four daunting years, continually stepping out of my comfort zone. Nevertheless, it is precisely the environment I would like to put myself in; learning from the best, learning with the best. I can not wait to see the person I will come to be after these four thrilling, challenging years in NYUAD. I believed it to be just the university for me, and I will unquestionably choose NYUAD if I am offered an admission.
