New Heights for AISB Alumni

It’s a pleasure for me to be taking on the role of AISB Alumni Coordinator this year and I’m incredibly excited about the plans we are putting together for the AISB Alumni Association.

It’s a pleasure for me to be taking on the role of AISB Alumni Coordinator this year and I’m incredibly excited about the plans we are putting together for the AISB Alumni Association. As an alumna myself, it’s been an honor to be as involved as I’m able to be, giving our Alumni Association the attention and opportunity for growth it deserves.
 

Since its establishment in September 2012 as part of our school’s 50th anniversary celebrations, the AA has grown from strength to strength under the direction of our President, Maria Tudor, and her Executive Team.
 

As a collective alumni group, we:
 

  • have organized Alumni reunions twice a year;
     

  • are present at AISB events, including sports activities, performances, and fundraising galas;
     

  • coach AISB students in Athletics and Activities;
     

  • have returned to work at AISB;
     

  • publish our WORLD magazine bi- annually and welcome a readership of over 25,000 people;
     

  • support AISB high school students by hosting ‘Career Tuesdays’ talks once a month with a focus on a different career each month;
     

  • annually invite and welcome AISB graduates into the Alumni Association with a gift to commend their hard work and introduce them to the unique group they will form part of; and

  • organize fundraising events to help the greater community, most recently raising over 5,000 Euros to help a little boy with Cerebral Palsy.

     

With an already active alumni body, we’re now looking to move things further along. We are in the process of building an online network which will give us the opportunity to connect more easily, both personally and professionally. This will also be a route that current students will be able to use to reach out to Alumni and truly establish a mentoring relationship.



As Alumni, we are now at a stage where we can take on the role ofthese mentors and offer valuable life,university, and early career advice to our budding students. Our presence as AISB Alumni is so important in inspiring current AISB students to reach incredible heights through dedication and commitment to their work and passions.

 

Very importantly, this online presence will also allow us to really brand  ourselves as a successful, thriving Alumni Association, gaining traction as a valuable network for our own Alumni group, our AISB community, and the greater local communities that we live in and are part of in all corners of the world. Building these connections will further shape our network of young professionals who are ready to give back to the communities they belong to, including reaching out to our wider communities in Bucharest and beyond by organizing professional development opportunities through our Alumni partners.


I, together with all of you, both Alumni and wider readers, look forward to applying our experiences, expertise, and energy to taking our AISB Alumni Association to the next level. Enjoy the pages of our Winter 2014 Issue of the WORLD Magazine and do consider sending in your stories for our next edition.



Sincerely,

Salwa Patricia Khalil
AISB Alumni Coordinator
