Three members of the Class of 2018 who are studying in the United Kingdom this year, Guillermo González, Dunia Van Hulle, and Neus Forner, visited the ASV campus to join the annual encounter with alumni studying abroad. Another guest was Linden Nieto (Class of 2014), who also studied in the UK and now works as video creator in London.
The alumni event took place on Thursday, December 20, 2018 and the goal is to offer first hand testimonials of how university life is for ASV graduates. Participants prepare a slideshow for the current students in Grades 9-12 and describe how they feel the education at ASV is helpful now in preparation to study at international universities. “Studying Politics the communication skills have been a great advantage”, Guillermo Gonzalez pointed out, “because we did lots of activities that really helped us to develop public speaking and debating skills”. Neus Forner added that the ASV global activities and a demanding IB Program were a good asset: “We are used to deadlines and working a lot at home by yourself and that’s really helping me now”, she said.
