Inspiration is right around the corner at KDU, where learning is not limited to the classroom. I drew strength and conviction from my lecturers, who shared their wealth of academic knowledge as well as their invaluable professional experiences. This helped me to mentally prepare for the highly demanding and challenging life of being a lawyer.
At KDU, learning is not just about studying. It is also about building up on your skills and talents. I had the opportunity to participate in various debate and moot competitions during which I was trained to construct sound legal arguments and to prepare strong bundles of paperwork. It trained me to think on my feet, to work fast and always be prepared. As a result of this, today, as a State Attorney at the Attorney General’s Office of the Maldives, I still use many of the skills and lessons I learnt during the OBU Program.
I made invaluable connections at KDU and some of my fellow classmates now work at top tier law firms around the world. I continue to work with them today just as we did during our time as students, through deadline rushes and all-nighters to submit assignments. I am proud of being part of the multi-talented and diverse KDU alumni.
