“A little worry, fading into the excitement of a first day which is different, new, and exciting. That’s how I felt when I set foot in the 1st Baccalaureate classroom for the first time. Since I was a new girl at the school, I considered that day as the beginning of a change of path, the start of a journey at that time unexplored, that of the International Baccalaureate. Now, at the beginning of the second term, I consider my experience at the school, and especially, what the international baccalaureate has offered me, as very enriching in so many ways. Not only in terms of academics, teaching me to develop my mind and inviting me to reflect on both academic aspects and those in our current society, but also on an individual level, making me grow as a person, encouraging the importance of human values.
Although I haven’t had many problems adapting, I am aware that this journey isn’t and will not be easy, it needs a lot of personal effort. But with my full dedication and perseverance, counting on the support of the teachers and the help and co-operation of my classmates, I believe it is possible to overcome any obstacle which may present itself. That’s why I encourage anyone considering studying this baccalaureate, since by working with enthusiasm, with excitement, and persistence, you reach the end of the journey with your objectives achieved.”
