I want my education to be helpful not just to me but to the people of my country and the world if possible.
What were you first impressions of UWC?
No matter where one came from, the unity we shared in our values is something really special I found among the people in this UWC. Other than that, this uniquely beautiful environment not only allows us to learn from the textbooks and the teachers but also allows us to extract knowledge from the people surrounding us in our day to day activities. Being a part of the community consisting of potential leaders is definitely something that is beyond description.
What’s been the hardest or most challenging thing about UWC so far?
There is so much to learn from every single person in a UWC. Managing enough time to get to learn from everyone has been a challenge. I think even the two years won't be enough for the vast amount of knowledge that we are in store for. Once you get a conversation going, you forget about time, forget about hunger and forget about sleep. This is indeed an interesting challenge for me.
What activities have you decided to do and why?
I am going to do four activities this year: Astronomy, Soccer, Film Society and Wilderness. I wanted to challenge myself both physically and intellectually. I want to get the most I can out of the two years at Pearson College. For my service, I am involved in the fire fighting department of the school. I have always had a deep interest in the activities that I chose.
What are your ambitions after you leave UWC?
I wish to continue my education in such a way that I can go back to my country and do the best I can to aid in its development. I want my education to be helpful not just to me but to the people of my country and the world if possible.
