Our alumna Pham Hien Minh, Class of 2017 who studying at University of Leeds, UK shared: "I owe our University Counsellor at BIS Hanoi - Ms Fairbairn - for all of the wonderful experiences that I have had in Leeds, because she had given a lot of support for me in terms of writing my personal statement as well as maintain my university choices from my parents' initial disapproval. It was an honor for me to have her as my counsellor and, in my opinion, Ms Fairbairn has done a great job."
