Why did you choose to attend ISAK?
I chose to attend ISAK because being in such a diverse environment has always been appealing to me.
How has ISAK impacted your life?
Ever since I came to ISAK I realized that working closely with my teachers and being able to talk to them in different places than just the classroom has changed my attitude towards school and schoolwork.
How has your decision to attend boarding school affected your relationship with your parents?
I feel like my parents trust me more now that they see how independent I have become.
What is your favorite part of daily life at ISAK?
My favorite part of daily life at ISAK is the meals that the students and teachers eat together. It is a time that I cherish because I often get to know more about people whom I don’t have classes with.
What have you learned about yourself by being part of the ISAK community?
By being part of the ISAK community, I have learnt that I am brutally honest and this can be a challenge for other people. However, I have also learned that I am really organized and willing to take control of a situation if my teammates are lost.
