Ananya Huria, RAKESS and an IB alumni, is now back in United Arab Emirates and working as a successful Design, Digital Media and PR associate in Dubai. Like any other expat kid, she joined RAK Academy (RAKESS then) in Year 8, when her parents migrated to RAK due to their jobs. After finishing her IB diploma in 2010, she moved to North Carolina, USA to study International Business and Entrepreneurship.
Ananya highlights her key learnings from IB and how the program helped her during her university years, “IB was not easy, but the most rewarding 2 years of my life! IB taught me to prioritize every little thing in my life, from HL Math assignments to spending time with friends and family to getting those CAS hours in. Those 2 years spend writing papers and essays really eased my way into uni. I remember my first year in uni I had to write 5 page essay every week for almost every class and it was a breeze, because every IB graduate is trained to produce 20+ page papers at any given time.” IB did not only help her excel at university but also gave her skills to adapt and grow among different people and culture. “IB is such a global program that wherever you go you’ll find IB people to connect with, and not just that the program itself gives you so much insight about the rest of the world that by the end of it you feel like a global citizen!”
