Hello, my name is Maximilien and I am from France. I am 12 years old and I am in year 7F. I have lived in the UAE for about 4 years and I have always been at BIS Abu Dhabi. I’ve always been very happy about my life at BIS Abu Dhabi as I strongly believe it is the best school in Abu Dhabi, academically and sports wise.

I am a very sporty person, but I also enjoy playing musical instruments. My favorite sports are; tennis (my favorite player is Sacha Zverev), rugby (my favorite rugby team are the Saracens), basketball (my favorite team is Miami Heat), sailing, F1 (I love McLaren Racing) and skiing. My favorite subjects are math, history and science. My favorite hobbies are playing the drums, playing sports, reading, and skateboarding. My favorite bands are ACDC and Guns n’Roses.

I have always wanted to be an engineer or an architect because I love creating, designing and building things since I was very small. When I get older, I would like to study at Cambridge and get into their rugby and tennis team. 

I have always enjoyed my life here and I would like it to stay the same.
