My name is Jacklyn Bausista Aledia, and I have worked at BIS Abu Dhabi as a Bus Monitor and Clinic Assistant for three years.

I was born in the capital of Manila Philippines in 1980. I love the colour purple and one of my favourite hobbies is cooking; I especially enjoy making Filipino dishes. I have two siblings, and I am also a proud and happy mother of three; two sons and one daughter.

I studied Computer Science before deciding to move to the UAE. When I first arrived, I worked in an office for five years, where my tasks included assisting with paperwork, cleaning, and making tea and coffee.

I went on to become a teaching assistant at another school for two years. I then joined BIS Abu Dhabi. I was thankful to have got the job, and being here has given me the opportunity to enhance my abilities and realise what I am capable of.

I am forever grateful for all the blessings I have been given, and being part of the BIS Abu Dhabi family is one of the biggest blessing that I have received.  

There is this saying that I always believe; "Do everything with a good heart, expect nothing in return and you will never be disappointed..."
