Natalie Kudenholdt, Alumnae '17
I always knew that I was fortunate to have grown up in the international community, yet I never understood its full value until I began my university experience in the United States. ISKL has provided me with countless opportunities that have shaped me into the person that I am today. The ability to work on my leadership skills, participate in a variety of activities, and be challenged academically over the course of my high school career has allowed me to feel extremely prepared walking onto my college campus.
In many ways, ISKL has even given me the upper hand in various situations as it’s rare to find others that have experienced the same level of cultural diversity and been exposed to as many perspectives as students at ISKL have. I will forever be proud and grateful for all the knowledge I gained both inside and outside the classroom. I believe everyone can warrant success through hard work, but I would not be where I am today without the support and opportunities that were provided to me by my high school community. As a result, not only am I able to pursue further education at a reputable university, but I am confident that I have the skills and mindset to thrive.
