Thanks for keeping in touch, Ken! We are very proud of you.
1. Why was a small high school good for you?
People knew one other better and were more willing to talk to one another, which made it easier to make friends. In a large school, people are just more closed, so if another person happened to be a future friend, you may never end up talking to them. People will make friends, but the friendships are closer in a smaller school.
2. How did a small high school prepare you for your future?
The instruction was more personalized, meaning that teachers could provide more attention. When I started this school in sixth grade (I am one of the few students who stayed there for seven years), I was very overwhelmed. However, the teachers continued to help me, even until the day I graduated.
3. What did you do after high school?
I am one of the top students in my major as a fourth year at the University of British Columbia, a top 50 university in the world. Currently, I am in the mathematics major with a minor in statistics, and I aspire to work in a field involving data analysis; I aspire to go into graduate school for a field such as statistics. I am also in the co-operative education program, which enables me to work full-time during the academic year. For one job, I have worked full-time at a non-profit where I wrote grants and conducted a business case of an adaptive hiking product.
