How long did you attend IST?
7 wonderful years, from Grade 7 to Grade 13.

What was your thesis title?
Economic Impacts of Genetically Modified Organisms in Developed and Developing Countries.

What was your IST House?
Anyi! First back-to-back winners!

In what ways were you prepared for your future studies?
By far, the Statistics classes were life-savers. They allowed me to easily pass certain university courses and greatly helped during the composition of my Master’s thesis.

In Grade 5, you planned on being?
I didn’t plan on being anything. I was too busy making sure I never missed a single new episode of the best cartoons on Cartoon Network.

What is your favorite memory from IST?
The last three years were jam-packed with awesome memories. Epic ping pong matches after lunch, to name one.
