Toby Chan

My past 13 years at ISF have been fruitful and have crafted some of the best memories in my life.

I am so grateful to have grown up with this cohort of students who are so incredibly talented, kind, and hardworking. I am extremely proud to call the class of 2023 my friends! I am also fortunate to have been surrounded by teachers and mentors who have supported my passions and encouraged me to pursue my dreams. I could not be standing here today without my friends, teachers, and mentors, and I owe my successes to them all.

My goals for the future are to study psychology and become a special-needs teacher or therapist. I have a passion for working with people, especially children, and want to make a positive impact in their lives. I believe that every child deserves the resources and support to succeed, regardless of their unique challenges or differences. I want to help break down the barriers and stigmas that can often prevent children with special needs from getting the help they require. By pursuing this career path, I hope to advocate for and empower special-needs children, and make a meaningful difference in their lives.
