Chenyu, TIS Class of 2019

I am constantly inspired by my peers. More importantly, I feel that I am valued and loved. When a school is able to provide its students what they need and support what they are passionate about in a daily basis, success would come naturally. The Independent School is such a place that makes me feel like being home despite I am thousands of miles away.
