Being around people from different cultures at the school has also made her first year of university more enriching.
“I was lucky enough to find the same enthusiastic, open-minded and enquiring attitude I enjoyed at La Côte in my fellow university students,” she said. “I’ve been able to stay my true self and make friends right away. The first year of university isn’t something students should be nervous about.”
Mila’s university programme also calls for two six-month internships in order to gain valuable hands-on experience.
She is currently completing a truly unique internship aboard a 70-metre private yacht as a stewardess. She initially chose this job as it allows her to travel to incredibly remote and unique locations such as Greenland.
For Mila, working in a demanding position with diverse job responsibilities and multicultural colleagues will help her build on her future career plans of being in a management position within the luxury industry.
She also expressed that being part of Nord Anglia Education’s international network has helped her become a more open-minded and sociable person.
“Through Nord Anglia I was able to join a volunteering trip to Tanzania, which helped me develop socially, while my trip to New York for the Model United Nations helped me develop academically by learning about global affairs and complex political agendas.”
Mila’s success story is just one of many being told by Nord Anglia Education students, who go above and beyond academically and socially thanks to the ambitious educational offer delivered by Nord Anglia schools around the world.
