  • Student Profile: Trinidad, Year 12

Our student profile this week is Trinidad, a student in Year 12. Trinidad would like to be a cardiological surgeon:

Hello, my name is Trinidad, I come from Algarrobo, Chile and have been in the UAE for about 13 years. I am in Year 12 and have been at BIS Abu Dhabi for approximately 8 months, I’m a relatively new student and I have to say that of the four schools I have attended in Abu Dhabi, BIS Abu Dhabi is definitely my favourite. In the short months I have been here I have made many friends, some of whom I can clearly call my best friends in the world, and I don’t use this term lightly, Yomna you know what you are to me. The people at BIS Abu Dhabi are some of the friendliest I have ever met.

My favourite event from this school year was the school play, many of my friends participated in the show so I was very excited to see it. The performance blew me away, and I even teared up a bit. The set of the show was really extraordinary and was like nothing I have ever seen before.

My favourite class is Biology, as I have two excellent teachers Miss Osman and Mr Dietrich who inspire me to work harder. We also have really interactive dissection lessons, which I really enjoy as I want to be a doctor in the future.  As for my hobbies, I really enjoy playing the piano, watching movies and tv shows, I am especially excited to go see Avengers: Endgame this Wednesday.

As my Secondary School experience is coming to an end, I have to think about the future, I am aspiring to go to a New York State University, such as NYU and Hofstra. I want to be a cardiological surgeon and practice in the USA or work for Doctors without Borders. 

Lastly, we need to save the environment, climate change is real and with the words of the famous Jake Peralta, “we all gon’ drown”.
