Sumin Kang -
Thank you for your huge support. It was an honour to study at BSB and I'm really proud as a BSB graduate!
I feel proud of myself - graduation means the culmination of 4 years of hard work of completing both IGCSE and IB.
I have been studying at BSB for more than 4 years and I feel sad that I am now leaving this school. Every experience was new to me and I really appreciated the opportunity to study in BSB, the Best School of Beijing! Graduating from BSB, I am now ready to step out to the greater world and I am excited and confident as I have received great support and help from this school.
I first started as a Year 9 student. Everything was new to me. I was unfamiliar with English, with the teachers and students and school. However, everyone helped me out a lot. Fortunately, I received great GCSE exam results in Year 11 and achieved a total score of 43 points in my IB Diploma. I really thank and appreciate the experiences at BSB. Although there were difficulties times, I have developed and matured into a better person. The experiences at BSB in these past years were valuable and I will never forget the memories here.
The best memory is when I went to Dubai to attend The World Scholars’ Cup together with the BSB Team.
I felt the pressure as a representative but was also proud that our BSB team passed the Beijing Round and qualified for the Global Round. It was my first time to go to Dubai so I was really excited. The experiences at Dubai were really valuable. I met a lot of new students around the world and it was such a great opportunity. I did a lot of preparation for the World Scholars’ Cup and I think these experiences further developed me to be a globalised and open-minded person. I will never forget this memory and I really thank BSB for providing me with such a great opportunity.
My experiences in International school made me see a broader world with students and teachers from different countries.
I think communicating and interacting with multinational people helped me a lot in developing a broader perspective. My future dream is to be a global journalist and thus I think International schools prepare me better for the future. Moreover, I used to be an introvert. However, international school education taught me to speak in front of the audience and communicate with new people. Now I am no longer a shy person. I enjoy meeting new people. I believed my experience at BSB has prepared me better for a globalised future.
