Dameer - Entering A New World
It takes a brave individual to dive head first into a new and unfamiliar environment without knowing how you will be perceived or what the outcomes may be. This is a situation a lot of our students face when moving from country to country and we would like to highlight one of our students who, we believe, is a shining example of how to tackle this daunting task.
Dameer is a proud citizen of Bangladesh, and while talking to him, you can sense the passion and pride he has for his country. He hasn’t come from a privileged background and his family has worked incredibly hard to get to where they are today. Moving to Malaysia was a family decision instigated by an incredible opportunity for his mother to further her career in Human Resources.
Entering Mont’Kiara International School at the beginning of the 2018 academic year, Dameer has held nothing back. He believes that when you are faced with a new environment, you need to do as much as you can at the beginning in order to find where you really want to be. Dameer has a saying, “bring your own brand”, which basically means that you need to be yourself, no matter what. His ability to embrace the change and take on new challenges should be an inspiration to all international students. Dameer is a strong believer in keeping an open mind and places honesty above all else.
Currently involved in varsity soccer, school productions, school spirit initiatives and musical productions, to name a few, Dameer has definitely made a name for himself, both with the faculty and the students at M’KIS. Going into the IB Diploma next year, Dameer has his sights set on getting the best possible education so that he can ultimately return to Bangladesh and make a significant impact on his country, be it an architect, a filmmaker or a politician. Dameer will succeed in whatever he puts his mind to.
M’KIS is proud of the fact that our students exemplify all the good there is in this world. Dameer is one example of an outstanding M’KIS student and there are many more. It’s a privilege to live, work and thrive with these individuals, whom we know will go on to be the next generation of leaders, innovators and change makers.
