Aisha was born and raised in Dubai, where she graduated from Al Mawakeb School. Here, she was captain of the football team, a team member in the basketball team and the AV club. Also, Binbrek had the opportunity to participate in the Young Entrepreneurs’ Competition, along with other high school students from all around Dubai. From there, she became a second-year student pursuing a bachelor’s degree in International Relations in the diplomatic neighbourhood of the world. In her first year, Aisha worked with young students for the Hospice Général in their Foyer Saconnex. She is now the Student Body Ambassador to both the second and third-year students of the Geneva School of Diplomacy. After graduating, she plans to achieve a master’s degree and pursue a career in the humanitarian sector.
Student Body Representative Master in International Relations
I am French-American and grew up in France in a bilingual family. Prior to the Geneva School of Diplomacy, I attended Colgate University in the United States where I graduated with a bachelors in international relations and philosophy. After an initial interest in pursuing law after my undergraduate studies, I decided to get a Masters degree from GSD as I have been interested in politics, and especially international relations, for as long as I can recall. Overall, the ability to directly engage individuals who work in the field, in addition to the unrivalled class diversity, has made GSD an extremely valuable experience for me until now. In fact, becoming student ambassador was one of my first objectives at the Geneva School of Diplomacy, as helping students and bringing lasting changes is something that brings me deep satisfaction. The experience itself has been fulfilling, and thus I would highly recommend any future student to consider the position as well.
