Growing up, I’ve been indoctrinated with the “Play It Safe” mentality. Sometimes it feels as if I was raised in a protective bubble – free from risks and problems. It’s a blessing and a curse. As an IB student, however, I’m encouraged to be a risk-taker. With ISF’s extensive resources and supportive faculty, I’ve learned to venture into new roles, passions, and academic fields. It’s also been a pleasure to grow alongside such a talented and driven cohort, where we push each other to our full potential.

As I transition into the next chapter of my life, I’m excited to immerse myself in a foreign environment, where I am faced with new people, experiences, and opportunities.
