As a school, it is always nice to hear from the students, whether they have graduated, transferred to a different part of the globe or have just chosen to visit the campus.
On 15th January, YCIS Chongqing welcomed three returning graduates from our Class of 2019, eager to catch up with school leaders, teachers and students.
Trinity Tam was recently offered places at universities in Hong Kong and the UK, and is awaiting two final offers from the UK before making her final decision. She said, “Studying interior design is my dream and I want to go to UK to pursue my goal”. We wish her all the best of luck in her new adventure once she decides upon the most appropriate choice of college, which will be in the very near future.
Cheon Jong UK received offers from a range of universities in HK and Korea, finally deciding to choose the Korea University and he will begin his studies March 2020. As the Class of 2019’s valedictorian, Jong Uk will study Mechanical Engineering at the Korean University and believes the skills he achieved through YCIS IBDP studies will definitely support his future college studies.
As our best performed IBDP student, Jose Ortega has begun his Computer Science and Social Science double major programme in New York University (Shanghai) but was very happy to return to the YCIS Chongqing campus, where he has extremely fond memories. Jose commented, “Seeing so many familiar faces made me feel like home”. Jose discussed the new experiences encountered in Shanghai. Advice Jose would offer students in our Class of 2020 is to “mediate and self-motivation” in order to maintain focus. Hopefully, his message will be adopted by some of our Year 13 students who are preparing for their upcoming IBDP exams in May.
It was certainly lovely to observe our alumni and staff chatting like long lost friends over lunch. It is clear that our teachers are incredibly proud of these young adults who are now embracing new challenges as they embark on their own personal journeys all over the world. We wish them all the best in their life pursuits!
