“I’ve had many memorable moments, and picking just one is hard. Every day we have something new, and I always look forward to spending time with my friends at school. That’s why every day is my most memorable moment!”

Italian-born HS student Tommy has been in ISKL since he joined 5th grade in 2018. Aside from participating in co-curricular activities such as swimming and volleyball, he participates in the orchestra and jazz club.

Here is Tommy’s story:

Any plans for after you graduate ISKL – what would you like to do?

After I graduate, whether at ISKL or some other place, I would like to go to university and will try and figure more out from there.

Do you have any thoughts on your career pathway?

I want to go into something STEM related since I enjoy classes like math and science. As of now, I’m thinking about engineering, but I still need to decide ultimately.

What are your hopes and dreams for the future?

I haven’t thought about this much. I hope to graduate with a good score, go to university and get a good job. I have yet to think about this in-depth, though.

Who or what inspires you or has influenced you?

My parents are an excellent guide through school and my life overall, so they are the ones that influence and inspire me the most.

Describe your memorable moment at ISKL.

I’ve had many memorable moments, and picking just one is hard. Every day we have something new, and I always look forward to spending time with my friends at school. That’s why every day is my most memorable moment!

What does “Know yourself, care for all and create a better world” mean to you?

First, you must know yourself since it all starts with one person. To me, it simply shows the purpose of the ISKL community.
