Embarking on the TGS journey is a life-changing experience. My advice? Bring your whole self along. Embrace the challenges, and let every experience be an opportunity to grow, create, and contribute meaningfully to the world around you. -David O.
1. Is there a country or experience you would consider your favorite from your time at TGS?
Reflecting on my incredible journey with TGS, I will never forget Botswana’s fairytale sunsets, Gökçeada’s island campfires, the joy of Noraebang karaoke in Seoul, or the allure of BiH’s enchanting waterfalls.
How could I?
Choosing a favorite term from TGS is like picking a star from the sky, but Australia holds a special place in my heart. Snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef, feeling the infectious pulse of city life in the heart of Melbourne, and even making a national TV appearance—the experiences were nothing short of incredible. Yet, what truly stood out was the warmth of random street conversations. From discussions about summer camping to “get ready for uni” prep talks, it’s amazing how connected we are with people from around the world.
2. What advice would you give future students considering joining THINK Global School?
Embarking on the TGS journey is a life-changing experience. My advice? Bring your whole self along. Embrace the challenges, and let every experience be an opportunity to grow, create, and contribute meaningfully to the world around you. Dare to go beyond the requirements; challenge yourself to see how deep you can immerse yourself into your studies and interests. You’ll be amazed by your capabilities and just how much you will grow.
3. How do you think your education at THINK Global School has prepared you for the future?
TGS exceeded my expectations, shaping my education with an uncommon combination of intellect and humanity. Every sunrise in a new city and every farewell to newfound friends made me someone who no longer fights but accepts change. In bustling markets and city halls, I found fragments of wisdom coloring my worldview. TGS prepared me not just academically but as a global citizen, and now, I stand ready for the future with an open mind and an interdisciplinary approach to creativity.
