What is your happy space?
I take pleasure in spending quiet time on my own or with my family. I enjoy reading in general, but it is the peaceful atmosphere that I appreciate the most, as it really allows me to organise my thoughts and cope with stress.
What do you aspire to be when you grow up and why?
I would like to study law in the future. I am especially interested in intellectual property law, but I am not entirely sure as to which specific job I would like to pursue.
Tell us about your favourite activity/project at GIS.
My passion lies in Model United Nations, firstly because of the opportunity to debate about highly captivating topics that may often influence us directly, and secondly due to the various skills it allows me to acquire. More recently, I have truly enjoyed working as a part of the KLMUN Secretariat to help organise the conference as well.
Share with us some of your proud achievements in life so far.
Receiving several Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards for my iGCSE results is my proudest achievement in life so far. The experience was especially valuable as it was a result of long term effort and patience.
What is the best part of studying at GIS?
GIS provides a highly supportive environment that encourages me to really delve into what I am studying. I genuinely enjoy the process of learning new material, applying the knowledge and stretching myself further to solve constant challenges.
Describe GIS in three words.
Competitive, inspiring and safe.
What does GIS offer to bring out the best in you?
The competitive atmosphere that constantly drives one to work hard, and the passion with which teachers respond to this individual motivation and academic curiosity are only two of the many elements GIS offers for a greater learning experience.
As a top Cambridge student, what are your study advice to fellow students?
I have always felt that studying requires more than a considerable amount of persistence. To retain such persistence, I realised the need for a fixed goal that is powerful enough to act as a source of motivation at all times.
