Aneeka Rahman ’96

Senior Social Protection Economist
Aneeka Rahman ’96 can still recall wise words spoken to her by a George School teacher.

Are there any classroom memories that stick out to you from your years at George School?

My time at George School was some of the best years of my life—from the people I met, the friends I made, and everything I learned beyond academics. While being involved in IB and AP classes was certainly challenging, the teachers made learning so much fun: Paul Machemer ’65 teaching us how to fold KOB notes, Bill Enos helping us calculate how much back spit is left in a can of Coke when shared among a group, Tom English making US history bearable, and words I have never forgotten from Rob Orr ’76: “life is choices!”

What passion did you take into your current career?

I am especially excited by being exposed to different cultures, different people, different backgrounds, and yet always coming back with the sense that we are all striving for the same goals, no matter where we come from or where we live.
