I am currently a student at the University of Warwick, studying Economics. Economics is wonderful because it is a bit of everything I like, including Maths, Business, and common sense. However, I did not choose Economics to become an economist. My true ambition is to become a Maths teacher in the future, and I discovered my passion for and ability in Maths during my time at YCIS.

After having studied Chinese at other schools in Shanghai, I don’t know any other school that offers as many different levels of Chinese as YCIS does. This means that each student is placed in a level that is the most beneficial to them, enabling the most efficient learning progress for each student.

Design & Technology (D&T) is a subject that gives you a lot of freedom. For example, in our previous topic we were asked to create a miniature model of street furniture. This was after we had learnt about different types of plastics and various ways to form them. Our assignment did not have any special requirements other than it had to be a street furniture model made out of plastic. We were free to design any kind of street furniture in any form using any method.

The satisfaction of being able to share your hard work with your family, your friends, and your peers is incomparable. Over the past two years, my classmates and I have been putting our all into our artwork for our IB coursework, and all of our accumulated work was recently showcased at our IB Art Exhibition this March. Our teachers had rented a gallery space for us in Pudong where we could display the products of our perseverance and commitment. To me, this was the highlight of my year.
