I will forever feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of the IB program at Cardinal Newman High School. Looking back, the experiences I had, the excellent teachers who taught and guided me daily, and the skills I gained shaped me into the person I am today. As I begin my second year at the University of Florida, I am confident that I will still continue to utilize the critical thinking and top-notch time management skills that the program taught me. I finished this past year at the top of my class in the Warrington College of Business, while also being an active member in CRU (Crusade for Christ) at UF, and an active volunteer at the English Language Institute. However, I truly believe none of this would’ve been possible without IB.
