"I play tennis competitively, and Kings InterHigh's flexible timetables have allowed me to train as much as possible while still maintaining a high level of education."
Aalto University student
Why did you decide to learn online with King's InterHigh?
I joined King's InterHigh during the pandemic to continue my learning without having to wear masks in a normal school. At the time King's InterHigh seemed like the most reliable option of all the online schools.
What's something you've gained from King's InterHigh that's really helped you personally?
I think learning by myself has helped me become more disciplined, as online learning requires the student to do the work and pay attention in lessons even when it is easy not to.
Is there something you’ve learned from King’s InterHigh that’s special to online learning or your situation?
I play tennis competitively, and Kings InterHigh's flexible timetables have allowed me to train as much as possible while still maintaining a high level of education.
What are your dreams for the future?
I have decided to go to Aalto University in Finland to study Computational Engineering. I hope to do my masters in the US with a tennis scholarship.
