Describe yourself in three words.

Conscientious, compassionate, intelligent.


What are your favourite subjects and why?

English - Language: I enjoy writing, especially as a character from a book, or a play.  Literature: When analysing work, I believe there should be more than one perspective and I love to hear what others have to say. 

Art/ P.E- These subjects bring out my creativity by familiarising me with works of art and sports from around the globe.

Math - It is really motivating when you understand and are able to carry out complex equations and problems.


What kinds of extracurricular activities do you do and why? 

The World Scholars Cup -  An academic competition that builds confidence, teamwork and cultural understanding. 

Netball and Basketball - Are about teamwork- trusting your teammates and them trusting you. These are sports that require understanding. 

Lasallian Youth Movement - This extra-curricular group is about giving back and has a lot to do with working as a team. I feel it is necessary to be selfless and once in a while to do selfless good deeds.


What opportunities has your school given you that you would not have had otherwise? 

My school was the reason I joined The World Scholars Cup. To me it was unheard of. My classmates returned with medals, newfound friendships and unforgettable experiences and I knew I had to give it a chance. It is a great adventure, rich experience and the best opportunity given to me by my school.

Our school is based on the values of faith, service and community and therefore it is mandatory for each class to organise and carry out a service project each term. I wouldn’t have gotten opportunities like this in my previous schools. 


If you could change one thing about being a student at your school, what would it be?

There isn’t much I would like to change about being a student at my school except the food. The canteen could provide better variety; there are some days when it is good but it can be worked upon. 


Describe your school in three words.

Community, Creative learning, Service-based.


What do you hope to do when you finish school?

I’m interested in either Psychology, Neuroscience or Acting. Maybe even Astronomy! 


What do you think is the biggest problem with the world today? What can you do about it?

Injustice. Injustice to those without power, to those who aren’t earning enough, to those who are discriminated and to the planet. I can certainly start by respecting all persons, avoiding judgement and giving back to our planet by reusing, recycling and limiting the use of plastic.
