What kinds of extracurricular activities do you do?
I'm a Concertmaster of Nexus String Orchestra, pianist, debater and Head of Student Representative Council. Also, I'm a member of the Nexus Community, a social service programme that hosts Myanmar refugees weekly. In addition, I'm the President of the National Children’s Representative Council for the state of Pahang and the President of the Recycling Club.
Who is your favourite teacher and why?
Well, it’s impossible to name just one. My English teacher Mr. Kyle never fails to engage us in a heuristic way of learning as active learners in every lesson and Mr. Vincent, my Physics teacher’s perpetually burning passion never ceases to push us forward in perhaps one of the most demanding uphill climb to conquer the pinnacles of Physics. Their creative pedagogy and enthusiastic personality have become one of the main driving forces that keeps me going when confronted by the challenges of the IB course.
What is the one thing that you like the most about your school?
The people, the environment, the facilities – just to name a few. Genuinely speaking, one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me is the opportunity to study at an institution that embraces diversity and allows learners to learn creatively outside the curriculum. In short, the holistic education I’m currently enjoying is what I like the most about my school.
Share a memorable experience in your school so far.
One of the most memorable experiences in my school so far is the CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) trip, a part of Nexus IB curriculum which took place in Janda Baik. Being elected as the leader of the cohort, I led the organisation of a one-day programme to host children from the BANZ orphanage with my peers. Our concerted effort in engaging with the children via station games and sharing sessions was successful in breaking the language and social barriers. I would never forget the grateful smiles on the children’s faces that emanated sheer happiness that warmed our hearts.
Describe your school in three words.
Well-equipped, Conducive, Amazing.
What is the best thing about being a student?
The fact that we could explore the world of knowledge that knows no boundaries without having to worry about making ends meet.
What do you hope to do when you finish school?
Pursue a degree, travel around the world, accumulate some job experience and come back and serve my beloved country.
If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?
I would change some of the education systems across the world to eliminate inequality in education. Ensuring equal education for every child is the first step to building a better world as the more informed people are about issues concerning the future of not only their nations but also humanity, the greater the prospect of change that may lead to a better future for mankind.
