Creating Useful Sustainable Resources for Society - Bhavish Adwani’s Noteworthy Contribution

The desire to live a sustainable and conscious life originated from within around the time when I was in sixth grade. Since then, I’ve been a proponent of sustainability and have had the opportunity to study more about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). When I was voted president of my high school student council in Grade 11, I was inspired to give back to society. As one of my first initiatives, I began humanitarian work with the hopes of having a good impact on society and mankind.

This summer, I got an absolutely wonderful and unexpected opportunity to work as a Software Engineer at VPBank, one of Vietnam’s earliest established Joint-Stock Commercial banks. Why do I say ‘unexpected’? Because to be honest, a year ago, I wouldn’t have believed that I would get this highly coveted role in the banking industry right in my Year 1 of the Bachelor of Data Science (BDS) program or that I would be writing this blog to share my experience!

Going Viral at Asia World Model United Nations - Meerim Imarbekova’s Story

In the beginning of November 2018, when I applied to Asia World Model United Nations (AWMUN) in Bangkok, I barely had any idea of what to expect. Imagine my surprise and excitement when I got my acceptance letter the very next day! Unfortunately, my excitement left me very soon, when I realised that not only did I not have enough money for this, I didn’t have enough time to earn the $800 either. A few days later, I decided to try my luck and ask the Global Learning Team (Nathaniel and Jamal) for advice and help, and they were so glad to help me. I can’t stress enough how thankful I am for their support, help, and understanding. They were the ones who gave me the courage to take up this experience.
