M'KIS Student Feature - Ayman - Grade 8

Our future is in excellent hands if students like Ayman continue to take the initiative and work towards a better world for all. Ayman, now in grade 8 at M’KIS, is from Pakistan and moved with her family to Kuala Lumpur two years ago. As her first truly international school experience, Ayman’s eyes were opened to the endless possibilities that lie in front of her and feels that she has the freedom, support and ability to achieve anything she puts her mind to.

Last summer, while making bracelets with her mom at home here in Kuala Lumpur, the idea to form a mini summer school for other kids in Pakistan was sparked. Ayman got working on a Google Site, put together a Whatsapp group, designed a Google sign-up form and prepared a two-day mini summer program that was jam packed with fun arts and crafts activities. Through networking with her parents, colleagues, and friends in Pakistan, Ayman had 21 kids sign up for her program. The program was completely supported by her mom and dad who helped her with space, projectors and anything else she needed.

Taking initiative like this and actually making a success out of it is a testimony to Ayman’s tenacity and passion for people. Ayman has a dream of becoming a positive influence on people through being a motivational speaker; however, her ultimate goal is to be the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Ayman, we are proud to have you and your family as part of our M’KIS Community. Keep doing what you’re doing and we know that one day you will achieve spectacular things.
