How would you describe your time at BIS HCMC?
Starting off as a year 2 student who barely knew any english and graduating with an IB diploma, I would describe my time at BIS HCMC as one that was full of warmth and limitless opportunities. Here, I had the opportunity to befriend one of the most kindhearted and charming individuals, to graduate with a group of people who I still regard as family, and to have been taught by one of the most attentive and caring teachers.
What were your biggest achievements during your time at the school?
I can’t pinpoint the biggest and most prominent achievement but I really enjoyed spending time with my co head students (Steven Vo, Saanya Mishra, Steve Ko) and the prefect team to improve different aspects of campus life. I was also very proud of representing our school at several MUN conferences with a very strong team of BIS delegates. Competing at F1 in Schools with my team (Doppler Racing) was really rewarding as well.
How did you find the IB Diploma Programme?
Though the IB Diploma Programme was no doubt stressful and demanding (especially on top of my other commitments), in hindsight, I now feel better equipped for university as an IB student and have enjoyed all the moments frantically editing IAs and essays. It has definitely allowed me to pursue academic fields that were out of my comfort zone and has shaped my decision to go to a liberal arts college that prioritises a diverse academic career.
