Khadija Fatima

Dili International School graduate from the class of 2014 Khadija Fatima, graduated with a bachelor of engineering honours (Civil) (Geotechnical) from the University of Sydney, which is the degree she had initially picked in 2015 after graduation with a VCE from DIS. Khadija says: “The journey after DIS has been amazing! It was hard initially to adjust to uni, especially the consistent cold weather of Sydney and the long walks on campus. But things did settle in and luckily, I managed to get through all the semesters. During the uni years, I managed to secure an internship with ACCIONA in a light rail project end of 2017 for 3 months. Last year was the hardest where I had to complete a thesis, on the other hand I also got the opportunity to be part of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities Undergraduate Leaders' Program 2018 as a Sydney Student Ambassador. University taught me a lot like being independent, taking decisions wisely and coping with the pressure. I made some great friends on way. I am very glad to have gotten this opportunity and will want to make most out of it.”
