What is your most memorable experience in school?
I enjoyed all practical laboratory classes. They always found a way to make me laugh, panic, smile, and rage in the span of an hour.
What were your favourite and least favourite subjects in school, and why?
Favourite: Math and Physics - I was first motivated by science shows on TV. I was later encouraged by my peers and teachers
Least Favourite: English - I liked English but I was not interested in literature.
What extracurricular activities did you do?
THIMUN (The Hague International Model United Nations), World Scholar's Cup and part of the track and rugby teams.
What was the best thing about your school? What important lessons did you learn in your school that have helped you in your life?
The best things from school were the friends I made who I still keep in contact today. I gained a higher confidence with the support of my peers. School has helped me approach all realities with an open mind and a positive attitude.
If you could travel back in time, what is the one thing that you would change when you were a student?
I would save the jobs of my beloved teachers. They were unjustly dismissed and all of us knew this decision did not make sense. They were the backbones of culture in the school.
What advice would you give to current students of your alma mater?
"I have always been told to be the best I can be, but that builds impressions of one's self. Have purpose instead of expectations and you will worry less."
