“Don’t give up on your dreams, or your dreams will give up on you,” – John Wooden.
It’s important for students to nurture their hobbies and passions at an early age. The awesome thing about students at NIS is that they live with passion; and, when they dream, they dream big!
Here is a list of our five favorite student stories on how their trip to Kidzania inspired them to work hard and become the person they want to be.
1. Rojeih Ramy
One of the jobs that students can explore in Kidzania is being a medical practitioner; a doctor. After attending the trip with his Elementary School peers, Second Grader, Ramy Rojeih now has a dream. The dream of, one day, becoming a medical practitioner; a doctor.
“I want to help people the same way doctors help me,” said Rogeih Ramy.
After experiencing what it’s like to work in an operating room [OR], he fell in love with the career path.
2. ADHAM WAEL
Sixth Grader, Adham Wael, has experienced Kidzania more than once. On his first visit, he thought it was a fun learning experience. However, Wael’s dreams have not yet taken shape.
“I never thought of anything I like in particular,” said Adham Wael.
Wael’s dreams are yet to reveal themselves, because he figures that he still has a long way to go. (Which is completely okay, in our opinion, because NIS strives to help students discover their passions, find the right paths for their future, and Inspire Themselves, Here, at NIS).
3. TAYEM WAEL
Third Grader, Tayem Wael went to Kidzania with his big brother, Adham. They both got to experience what it’s like to operate in the adult world. Tayem in particular, stated that it was a lifelong lesson. He now knows how people work on a daily basis and can’t wait for his days to come. In fact, Tayem had such an amazing time, living in the land of the giants, that he plans to go back more often (with his older brother).
4. MIRIAM HESHAM
Third Grader, Miriam Hesham, was a young lady on a mission! She focused on three key areas of Kidzania: Cosmetics, Molto, and Pepsi.
Hesham now knows how they’re made and what ingredients go inside each one of them (I wonder if she learned the secret ingredient that’s used in Pepsi).
Yet, even with all this new knowledge, it wasn’t enough to change her dream. You see, this passionate young lady already knows exactly what she wants to be: a pediatrician, to take care of the “little ones”. However, Miriam definitely thinks that her love for makeup, Molto, and Pepsi is yet to grow as she does.
5. HAMZA AYMAN
And last but not least, meet Third Grader, Hamza Ayman. This devastatingly handsome [and very courageous] young man wants to be a police officer: to save others and prevent people from any harm.
“I don’t care about the dangers, in the end I’ll win in life and the afterlife,” said Hamza Ayman.
After being “a cop” in Kidzania, Ayman now wants the real thing even more. He got to experience what it’s like to have the responsibility of helping others and chasing down “the bad guys”. He’s ready to fulfill his dream, to fight with glory….and serve with honor.
