In their Own Words
Arul Shrivastava ‘22
“I like to say that I’m more of a STEM student than a “writer,” however, as well as learning how to be a better writer, the IB has helped me in embracing an interdisciplinary approach to the world. By ensuring that my focus is not on any one subject more than another, I have started to appreciate the world as a whole rather than staying in my own scientific bubble. I have been in the IB in two different schools and the IB brings us together. All in all, IB students become international, genuine people, accepting of everyone regardless of any philosophical or physical differences. When I first walked into school, I was obviously nervous about making friends. I must say that the moment I walked into my first class, I not only felt accepted, I also felt that there were no gaps in culture or academics.”
