A dream comes true.

Today I’m a proud holder of a PhD from Derby University, UK and working with the number one bank, NBAD. All this would not have been possible without the opening and then me joining and graduating from the HCT.

My story starts when I got married and had to stop my education in the USA and come back to Abu Dhabi to join my husband. But my dream was always that I would continue my studies and hold a PhD. That day came when one day unexpectedly I received a call from “Lamees” from HCT. She informed me that there was a new college opening in Abu Dhabi and she asked if I would like to register. I was thrilled with the news and immediately I resigned from my work and joined the first batch of the Abu Dhabi Women’s Higher Colleges of Technology.
