What I found at the MET upon visiting helped me make the decision to change schools almost instantly. Classes were no longer traditional, and instead of rote memorization, there was analysis, international mindedness, discussion, respect, and kindness – things that matter to me.
Besides making lifelong friends and enjoying a well-rounded education that has allowed me to thrive, the MET has literally changed the course of my life. Before the MET, who would have thought that I would end up studying at NYU Abu Dhabi? The MET allowed me to experience leadership by giving me the support to pursue my ambitions and share my passions with others.
Our first debate conference and my participation at the International Mathematical Olympiad are examples of the opportunities that I could harness. For this, I cannot find the words to express my gratitude, for I am walking away as a different individual than I was when I first arrived, with experiences that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
