“UWC ISAK is a magical place. It’s full of things that are so different from back home. There are people from all over here, each with their own thoughts and beliefs that are different from my own. It’s amazing seeing how everyone functions within the same environment. For me it’s hard, there are things I miss, things I’m still figuring out and a struggle to remember the names of people I have yet to get to know. But that’s just a part of it, I’m meeting so many amazing individuals, people with something new to teach me. Everyone has something to offer and give here, from the teachers whose extensive knowledge sometimes gets lost in translation from genius to our ordinary understanding, to the students who come from the other side of the world both in distance, experience and way of thinking to me. The biggest challenge here is making sure you remember to get some sleep! Here's a picture of an OEd Hike I went on! // Alexandria from Western Australia is our first student to the UWC in Japan. Located in Karuizawa, UWC ISAK opened last year. Thank you Alexandria for your fantastic hiking photo!
