“I’ve had experience living in Spain, England and Australia just on my own – without my parents, starting when I was 14 years old.  I was surprisingly well prepared. I had no difficulties adjusting to the cultural differences and I was absolutely ready to handle the independent life.  At Imperial College, I was surrounded by the best students in Europe and I felt that I rose to the occasion by graduating with 1st class honors (equivalent to Suma Cumlaude).  Believe it or not; I was a problem kid most of my life and I thank my teachers at Southville for helping me become who I am,  they helped me change from a failing student (in Grade School) to an honor student (4th year high school) . I wish the International Baccalaureate diploma was offered back in my time though so I wouldn’t have to leave home so young, but thank you to all my teachers at Southville.”
