My Story

Being a kid who had spent her entire childhood amidst the crowd and chaos of Mumbai, I had learned from my surroundings that dreams have no boundaries, and that success cannot be achieved within the extent of being in my own comfort zone. Hence, I have always sensed the urge to challenge myself, to explore my potential and this led me to move to Amsterdam at the age of 17. I have always felt passionate towards people, culture and creativity, and I found the perfect confluence of it in the Hospitality Industry, thus resulting in me applying for Hotelschool The Hague. I have always strived to do something that had given me the opportunity to achieve this. By the means of this challenge, I change, something that is revolutionary, something that the people are proud to be a part of. Where we make Generation NEOM the `norm` where people - live to learn and learn to live.

Sustainability has always been embedded as a rule, a restriction, something that needs to be paid attention to irrespective of the goals that we want to achieve. What if, living sustainably becomes the ultimate goal? This challenge helped me discover the true meaning of sustainability and with our community plan we strive to inculcate the meaning in everyone`s lives. It`s time we live to learn, and learn to live.

They strive to build a community that ‘lives to learn and learns to live’. Their vision for NEOM is to set an example for the world by creating Generation NEOM, a generation prepared for the future. Generation NEOM will be created by the means of a revolutionary education framework that integrates futuristic learning and state-of-the-art technology whilst understanding the true meaning of living. This framework believes in equality, innovation, creativity, culture and sustainability in a holistic sense.
