Meet Nikhita

  • Speaks Arabic and English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hi, My name is Nikhita Mendis and I double majored in International Relations and Middle East Studies at Brown University and graduated magna cum laude, with honors, and a 3.9 GPA. I'm currently doing my masters in social anthropology as a Gates Cambridge Scholar at Cambridge University and plan to pursue my PhD in history/anthropology. Working with children at Zaatari Village (the children's section of Zaatari camp) in Jordan, creating afternoon lesson plans and conducting lessons for primary school kids in Providence, tutoring the children of migrant workers and refugees in Lebanon (where I conduct ethnographic research), I've been surrounded by children throughout my work experiences. I am down to earth yet energetic and have been known to create a both fun and educational atmosphere for the families I work with. I have also babysat for families during my summer and winter college holidays. I am proficient in both Arabic Read more and English and have tutored high school students learning Arabic through Brown. I am dedicated, flexible, and attentive to the needs of the families and kids I work with. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
