MAPS College
Humans of MAPS - Aminath Husna

Anxiety is a terrible thing; something our culture is not yet ready to discuss. This island nation undermines the crippling power of certain mental afflictions. “It’s not a big deal” they say. So tell me, what is considered a “big deal” anyway? Isn’t it a big deal that I cannot hold interest to finish a course? Isnt it a big deal that I have to go through five courses in different colleges, before I could get the academic support I needed? Isn’t it a big deal to feel worried about taking a picture to put a face behind the voice that is trying to say this? It is a big deal, one that requires tremendous effort to fight. I am constantly battling this crippling force and I take it very seriously. I do what I must to make sure I am happy. Photography is one of those things and it eases my mind; it keeps me occupied and takes me to a world of relaxation. Beautiful oceans, splendid trees and wonderful scenes everywhere to be captured. These moments and images, they help me find comfort at times that are just impossible. I have been involved with photography ever since I was 15. I taught myself to take pictures and edit them which I am extremely proud of.

I work two jobs; it is stressful as it is even without this anxiety. Though my anxiety has been painted as a shortcoming, I don’t want it to describe me. I am a determined woman, who aims to inspire and seek brilliance. I want to own a guest house and run a photography career of my own. A dream which I will chase vigorously, with virtue, regardless of what the future holds for me, and to be honest it was never easy. However; I get along with a bit of help from people. MAPS has shown me support to brave my inclinations. If such support continues in all facets of my life; there will be nothing that I cannot brave and hopefully it would serve as a beacon for those who also feel that their thoughts and feelings are not taken seriously.

Testimonial

  • It’s been almost one and a half years since I joined MAPS College to pursue higher studies as part of the first-ever batch of “MAPS’ Associate’s Degree in Business Management”. It’s been a wonderful experience as a part-time student, studying on block-mode. The recent introduction of “Google classroom” has been quite a break through as we get the chance to interact with classmates and lecturer in the comfort of work or at home while the text books and lecturer’s teaching material are made available too. Assignments can also be done and turned in via it. The College has a great collection of reading material in its Library equipped with computer systems that enable us to browse the Internet while going through printed references.

    One of the most frequently met person at MAPS is the course coordinator Ms Inasha Afeef, who has worked tirelessly over the last 18 months. She has been prompt to our queries & available almost instantly to have discussions on any matter related to the course. She’s also ensured that MAPS provides quality lecturers for our modules & I don’t recall that any module has been postponed or cancelled due to the lack of lecturers.

    As far as the Lecturers go, each and everyone has been very diligent and professional while teaching us. Their command of the subjects as well as vast experience in their respective fields have been an added bonus for us as we get the chance to exchange ideas, real life examples to during the lectures.
    One particular lecturer I’d like to commend is Ms Eeman Shareef who has taught us 6 modules from a total of 16. When she initially joined & started teaching in June 2013, she was a part-time lecturer & currently a full time lecturer at MAPS. During the course of the last 18 months she has been one of the instrumental figures in encouraging us in our endeavour to successfully complete the course. Her advise, continued guidance, support and unique way of teaching has been a tremendous encouragement in our short journey at MAPS so far.  After the completion of this course I do plan to pursue MBA at MAPS College too.
