Front and center of tomorrow's society – learn smarter, teach harder
Cultivating a culture of reading is crucial to building and sustaining an innovation based, 21st century economy. Therefore, concerted efforts must take place to ensure that students are encourage to read amd are provided opportunities to do so. Recently, the educational institutions of Abu Dhabi have placed a strong emphasis on getting its students to read and love doing it. I have had the privilege to help plan and plant the seeds of their vision of a book-loving society.
Being an active member of the Abu Dhabi school system’s concerted efforts to modernize and revolutionize its learning culture has been an honor. During the annual, two-week “Abu Dhabi Reads” campaign, the Abu Dhabi Education council recognized my support toward the AD Reads initiative in schools and dedicated involvement in promoting reading events on my high school campus and at the Delma Mall and the AD International bookfair.
