I would like to thank the Weyakum team for making my dream come true by helping me prepare for the competitive Young Professionals Programme at the United Nations. Weyakum inspired us applicants to chase our dreams no matter how far they were and walked ‘weyana’ (with us!) through the whole process. So I would like to thank Weyakum for supporting Emiratis on our journey to success! Behind Weyakum team there is a real leader who believes in us and pushes for miracles. Thank you Ameera! You made me believe in myself more than ever and showed me that I can do anything I set my mind to! And together, we did it!
It was one of my best experiences to work with the Weyakum team. I would have missed one of my biggest dreams if I did not meet them to learn about the UN’s Young Professionals Programme. Special thanks to Ameera who did a lot for us by being there for us every day. Even when she was traveling she answered all my questions and skyped me if I needed help. I would never forget the effort she made to help me and explain everything to me patiently. Weyakum, everything you did was greatly appreciated!
I would like to start by thanking Weyakum to embrace us the way they did. Weyakum is a successful program in terms of developing the capacities of Emiratis and motivating them regardless of coming from different emirates and educational backgrounds. It built a spirit within us to accept challenges head on. I am proud to apply as an Emirati and help fill the UAE quota at the UN. I’m also so proud of the head of this program who has devoted much of her time and her efforts to publicize the program and motivate us by sharing many of her own challenging experiences. Thank you Weyakum for giving me this opportunity!
I always aspired to work for the United Nations, but I never knew it was possible until Weyakum introduced me to the Young Professionals Programme. I would like to thank the Weyakum team for all the help and support they provided me throughout the application process and I believe that with Weyakum young Emiratis will be able to live up to their career potentials and fulfill their goals.
I am glad I learned about Weyakum, and met the woman behind the initiative. It is truly uplifting to know such people exist in my country and such initiatives are taken to help more and more Emiratis into the world.
I would like to thank Weyakum for the sessions I have had to work on my YPP application and registration process. It was a pleasure dealing with Weyakum. I really appreciate their care and concern during all meetings, which greatly helped me to move forward. A special thanks to Ameera for her kindness and to all compassionate group who reside there. I consider her a model, and lead the team in providing consistency and delivered all expectations. I would highly recommend working with Weyakum team for the faithful and endless support.
Weyakum made me think of new career opportunities that didn't cross my mind before. Their efforts to help young Emiratis in finding their career path are obvious and they give us all the needed time, attention and support.
I thank Weyakum for their guidance and help throughout my application process. Applying with their support made the whole process easier, more familiar, and an educating experience in and of itself.
I would like to thank Weyakum for dedicating their time and effort. I have not come across such dedication like this before; the team at Weyakum shows remarkable desire to help and guide Emiratis. I’m especially pleased about my experience with Weyakum and it has been extremely beneficial since I had the chance to improve my professional skills in different aspects. Once again, thank you to Weyakum for all their effort!
Weyakum has introduced a new platform for Emiratis to experience. My experience with Weyakum has been such an amazing journey! A special thanks to Weyakum’s Founder, Ameera who has dedicated her time and energy to make sure that we had everything together while applying for the YPP. The program is very important to me because I will be competing with international applicants to join the United Nations Young Professionals Programme. The UAE provides all the support necessary to women in the country and so it is our turn to work hard to show the world our skills and knowledge as women of the Emirates. I look forward to filling in the UAE quota at the UN as an Emirati woman!
I am very grateful to Weyakum for introducing me to the UN Young Professionals Programme and helping me step by step with the application process. I would like to thank Ameera for her endless support and for being available at anytime to help us with our questions. Thank you for all the things you and your team have done for us. We will always continue to appreciate your help and your services for the up coming years. Wish you the best of luck Weyakum!
With the end of my under-graduate studies closing by I started to look for ways in which I can implement my knowledge as a citizen of the UAE. Weyakum was not only a great help in finding and applying to the UN program, it also broadened my understanding of giving back to the country.
A big thank you to the Weyakum team for their tremendous support for me and all United Nations YPP applicants. You've provided more than just support and guidance, but also continuous motivation. Thank you for encouraging Emiratis to go the extra mile!
Finding Weyakum was such an exciting and spontaneous experience. In fact, I had the impression that it found me! The accessibility and wide spread presence of it on social media facilitated my engagement with it. I soon realised that there was something to do for anyone from very diverse educational and professional backgrounds. I contacted Ameera and the speed and enthusiasm of her response made me feel immediately welcome and comforted! Working with her was a great pleasure, as she made sessions and points of contact available for applicants from all over the UAE.
I received guidance and support from Weyakum which enabled me to combine my skills, knowledge and passion and pursue the career I have always dreamed of. Weyakum taught me that anything is possible if you really want to achieve it! Thank you for always being there Weyakum!
Weyakum is a great local initiative that provided me with the opportunity to apply for an employment program at the United Nations. I appreciate the time and effort given to help us go through with this process. I salute the determination, motivation, and valuable support that touched my heart to be able to apply for this opportunity. It is an opportunity that will enable young Emiratis like myself to shine across international boundaries professionally.
"I truly appreciate all that Weyakum is doing for us Emiratis and the opportunities they're presenting to us, opportunities bigger than we ever imagined. Thank you, especially, to Weyakum’s founder Ameera, for her continuous support and effort in helping us realize our dreams & aspirations."
I was very much interested in the UN Young Professionals Programme and I was so glad to know that Weyakum offers intensive assistance in the application process. Given it’ my first time applying to the Programme, there would have been so many things I would've overlooked, but thanks to Weyakum's attention to detail, I managed to submit my application without any errors. I can't thank Weyakum enough for their endless help and the precious one on one time with me. I will definitely consult with Weyakum again should I need help applying to such programmes… I wish them all the best!
