On a bright sunny day in July 2009, I walked into the building I call my Alma Mater. Ever since then, I went home with a new box of knowledge every single day. My teachers picked me up when I fell and restored my confidence every time failure had put me down. Stamford is not only a place of study but also a place where one can learn lessons that would help them through life: how to communicate, be amongst different cultures, use skills to the fullest and most importantly make most of the opportunities you have in life. I am surely thankful for the opportunity to be able to attend the second ever Asian African Student’s Conference in year 2015. I am proud to be a Stamfordian and I shall always aspire to make my school proud of me.
