At KDSL Global we believe students should have opportunities to be exposed to a variety of careers during their secondary experience. Each year we host students who engage with our company on projects. This summer we welcome two students who are based in Dubai.
Areeba Khalid is a student at GEMS Modern Academy. She currently in Year 11 who will start her International Baccalaureate in the month of September. She was in an Indian Curriculum from grade 1 to 10. She is a very ambitious, enthusiastic and hard-working child. It her first internship at KDSL Global Internship Program and working in a professional environment. She is keen to acquire new skills, gain more knowledge on education and have a great experience during the program. She has participated and volunteered in various events at her school. She has a great interest in art and hence taken art as one of her subjects in IB. She also has a passion for teaching, and thus wants to pursue her career in the field of education.
Currently in the midst of her high school life, balancing her extra curriculars with academics and preparing for college Araditta Sunder is studying psychology and business in an IB school. Being an IB student has allowed her to imbibe skills such as time-management, and organization which has allowed her to be balanced and well rounded. At home, she is a kind and caring sister who is always there to support her autistic elder brother. Growing up trying to understand him inspired her to do psychology but there was something about the “learning theory” that pushed her curiosity into education. Watching her brother receive vocational therapy inspired her to think about things like learning styles, based on which she has also written essays. Taking a step further by joining forces with a center for Autism in Bangalore called Apoorva, to support other children like him has given her some exposure, but in order to make a difference she believes that she must be properly skilled and knowledgeable. So, with the help of this internship Araditta aims to obtain insight and resources to confidently venture into this pathway.
