Previous school: Marlborough College Malaysia
Place of residence: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Selected by UWC Atlantic College
Being part of one of the United World Colleges has been a dream of mine since the moment I became aware of its compelling ethos and mission statement. UWC is more than just a school, it is an experience that teaches you to reach out beyond academics and learn about the importance of compassion and companionship, as well as celebrating diversity and difference. It is a place where learning happens not only in the classrooms, but even through simple conversation. For the past three years, I have been actively volunteering at homes for the disabled outside of school hours, as well as taught english to underprivileged children through fun activities and games. At UWC, I hope to take my passion for service further and find a way to integrate and bring that together with my passion for art, science, and technology in order to create a lasting effect in this world. I also hope to leave UWC with a greater understanding of the world and the people surrounding us, a better grasp of leadership and communication as well as seizing all given opportunities in order to challenge myself. There is no doubt that UWC will provide ample opportunities for the student body to make a strong and lasting impact and much, much more. The integral qualities that we will gain, the lasting friends that we will make, and the bright mindsets that we will leave UWC with, mindsets with an incentive to spread our values to the world, will be second to none.
