What is your happy space?
I do not necessarily have a fixed place that I find myself constantly revisiting, unless we’re talking about my bed, that’s indisputable. However, other than that, my happy space is where my friends and family are, I enjoy being around people who enable me to be myself.
What do you aspire to be when you grow up and why?
As for my future aspirations, the path ahead is still unmade and foggy – for those unclear, by the way, I meant that with totally positive intentions. It has allowed me to focus on what I truly enjoy doing and to maintain an open mind to all new, exciting and compelling opportunities and ideas.

As aforementioned, I have established my passion for sleeping, thus it is a testament to my greater love for football having to wake up at 5:30 to be in school by 6 for training. Having been involved in the Dragon’s football team since Year 4, not only is the bond between the players stronger than any ionic bond we learn in Chemistry, there is a heartwarming feeling in having a group of boys whom I have matured alongside on and off the pitch throughout our 7 years.
What is the best part of studying at GIS?
The best part of studying at GIS is the communal sense of family and support. As much as our school is adamant on academic excellence, they do not discredit the importance of our mental and social wellbeing. Moreover, it is clearly noticeable that the teachers are always in full support of their students’ aspirations whether it be on the football pitch, singing on stage or even furthering their understanding in their subjects beyond the curriculum.
How does GIS bring out the best in you?
GIS is not an institution that dictates the student’s learning process, it is quite the opposite. From the multitude of extracurricular activities, to engaging lessons and excellent staff support, to name a few, GIS is an institution that is in the continuous stage of adapting and accommodating to best fit the needs of the student.
