What is your happy space?
My happy place is simply anywhere that I am able to spend some time with my friends and family. I think spending time with the people who play an important role in my life is the best way to relax and have fun!
What do you aspire to be when you grow up and why?
In the future, I would like to study Economics and History as I have always been passionate and interested in these subjects. Recently, after completing my Work Experience at MayBank, I think that Investment Banking is something that I would like to pursue in the future.
Tell us about your favourite activity/project at GIS.
My favourite activity at GIS is the Project Arts 360 CCA. During the student led CCA, we invite refugee children to the school each week and provide them with a range of activities to partake in. I think it is the best CCA as it allows us, as students, to bring joy to the wider community and make a positive difference. I love seeing the smiles on the children’s faces each week as they run through the front gate, eager to see what activity we have planned for them.
What is the best part of studying at GIS?
Quite simply, the teachers in GIS are what set our school apart from the rest. With the motivation, inspiration and drive they provide us with every single day, they bring out the best in us. Having been at GIS since Year 1, I truly believe that it is the amazing GIS community that shapes the people that we, as students, become.
As a director of strand, how do you see yourself leading your team?
My role as a Strand Leader is simply to provide guidance for my team members to ensure that we remain on track throughout the year, bringing us closer to achieving our goals at the end of this year. As the Leader of this strand I hope to be able to motivate and encourage my teammates.
Share with us some of your proud achievements in life so far.
Receiving one of the GIS Sixth Form Scholarship is definitely my proudest achievement thus far as it is extremely humbling to be recognised within the school. Furthermore, I have also been awarded with Subject Awards for Economics, History and Biology for my performance in Years 10 and 11. It was an honour to be rewarded for my efforts!
Complete the sentence: I wish… success and happiness to anyone and everyone around me.
Life motto: The best view comes after the hardest climb.
