My name is Nicholas Rae, I am currently a year 13 student under a scholarship in Cats College London. I believe that the early stages of education are the most crucial, as it acts as the foundation for the coming future, and to me FIS has provided me with the solid foundation to reach greater heights. I studied in FIS for the first 8 years of my education, from these early stages I have gained not just academic but also life experiences that FIS has emphasised during my period there. FIS has provided me with the encouragement to engage with my peers and teachers, allowing me to be more accepting and more opened to others. In addition, FIS has prepared me for the tough coming future, where I was able to adapt to tight schedules and develop substantial discipline. Overall I am very grateful for the time and service FIS has dedicated to me. I had an enjoyable experience and gained the encouragement to pursue higher education. I have received multiple University offers, Coming from the United Kingdom and Japan, and I do believe that FIS has contributed to these achievements. I have now made a firm choice of going to Waseda University, School of Political Science and Economics, where I have been presented with an unconditional offer.I am really grateful to have been given the opportunity to study in FIS and I do hope FIS will continue to provide remarkable assistance to students.
