Once in a lifetime, we get the chance to meet a person who is so inspirational that his presence in your life alone causes a dramatic change in your life, someone who inspires you to challenge your limits, someone who teaches you with such burning passion that makes you want to learn, rather than being forced to learn, and that person for me is Assistant Professor in the field of Literature, Dr. Lamees Al-Bustan.
Dr. Lamees is well known for giving her students the opportunity in elevate their skills by participating in the many extra curricular activities she provides with the Department of English Language and Literature.
She has been supervising The Annual English, which is one of the most prominent events in the College of the Arts for eight years, in the English day, students get the chance to work first hand in the field they excel in, these fields include PR, acting, directing and presenting a study of their choice.
Dr. Lamees also supervises the English club, the English Club offers students the opportunity to design and perform events and activities for the English Department, the experiences the students get from working plays a big role in shaping the the students, which will help them in their future jobs.
She also helped establish the English Department’s debate team, after rigorous training, the English Department’s Debate team snatched the victory over GUST, ASK and AUK and got the Debate championship back in 2011
Personally, Dr. Lamees gave me the opportunity to to head both the film and design committees in the 9th Annual English Day, she also pushed me to join the Debate team, in which we got the championship, she was also inspired me to start filming, which now takes a major part of my life.
I was truly blessed to have met her.
