Name: Stephanie Hyacinth
University: Seton Hall, New Jersey
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme has prepared me for college and even life after college. First, the programme has helped me get into colleges of my choice. Although I had minimum level preparation for my SATs, I was able to achieve a 1900. Thanks to all the knowledge I had acquired during the IB Diploma programme. Through this programme I have gained more confidence. I have learnt time management skills and I can now cope with a large workload. I can honestly say the IBDP has refined my skills as a writer through the extended essay and internal assessment. The programme has not only helped me academically but it has revolutionized my social portfolio. I have ventured into things I would have never thought of doing like participating in sporting activities and hosting grand events like the National Day. I have also made great friends, with students and teachers alike, who have helped me through this tasking, yet wonderful experience. I think I am going to have one of the smoothest and easiest transitions into university life.
The IB programme is the perfect educational pathway for me and if I can survive the IB programme, I can survive anything! I highly recommend the IB programme for students who wish to challenge themselves and become international students with a huge difference on the global stage.
