2019 Graduate (Biology)
Hello. I am Jaewoo Seong and I graduated Urban International High School this April. For me, UrbanInternational High School is always a place to help me achieve my goals. When I was one of the Highschool students, the only thing I most desire was entering college. At that time, with the help of manyteachers and friends in school, I got offers from all the universities and colleges I applied to. I had beenthankful for all the help and advices from teachers in UIS, but UIS gave me more than I realized. Afterthe new semester started, the most surprising thing was that the materials I received in college classeswere very similar to those I received in UIS classes. More than half of what I have learned is similar andit was a great advantage to start the lessons in college. For example, Mr. Warberg’s writing techniquesmaterials, Ms. Schellenberg’s Citation style and information about world history, and Note from Ms.Ebrahimi, Ms. Jang. and Ms. Ham. All the academic knowledge that I learned in UIS become the basisof my college study. Furthermore, my High school experience helped me with my group assignmentand with makingfriends. When I first came to Canada, it was hard for me to make friends and Ihesitated every time I had to speak English. However, the valuable experience gained from studentcouncil activities in UIS has made me feel more confident in group activities and little more confidencein English. My time at Urban International High School has prepared me to start perfect college life.
