IB Class 2013 Valedictorian, Jeon Da Seul’s Commencement Speech

“The International Baccalaureate (IB) in our school was a phenomenal experience for me. Because of the efforts of the school to expose us to a bigger world we could explore, I am really thrilled and confident about the privileges and opportunities we graduates will grab and make much of” said Class 2013 Valedictorian, Jeon Da Seul as she gave her speech during Southville International School and Colleges I.B. Commencement Exercises held last June 3, 2013.


Jeon narrated how she learned new skills in I.B. that gave her a stronger sense of self-identity and pride. What made school life precious with her classmates is that they built camaraderie despite all the cultural differences that might have caused conflict in a different school setting. She thanked her teachers for their efforts to give them the best education possible and to keep them on track and on target to achieve the diploma they’ve been aiming for since then.
