IB students who attended the World Student Conference (WSC) in 2012 are still drawing from their experience in Segovia and blogging about it! Read about creativity, action, service (CAS) projects and the future plans of these inspiring students.
Arianne Brakstad — Global Jaya International School, Indonesia
In Segovia, Arianne and her global action team designed a school building project that ignited her interest in education and teaching. When she returned home to Tangerang, she began tutoring primary school students. With her newfound passion of working with children, Arianne started volunteering at a local cancer center. Instead of just playing with the children like the other volunteers do, she started a tutoring programme to provide some educational activity to these children not attending school.
Arianne has been accepted into the University of Southern California and plans to major in neuroscience. Congratulations, Arianne! We are so proud of you!

Bandhagi Bajaj — Fairview International School, Malaysia
Before Bandhagi came to the World Student Conference in Segovia, she had dreams of owning her own hotel and had been accepted into one of the best hospitality schools in the world. However, after working for a week with her peers from around the world, engaging in design model project planning, and becoming inspired by speakers who were carrying out such work, she changed her mind completely.
“Yes, I see problems in this world. Yes, I have ideas as to how to resolve these problems. And yes, I will no longer wait around for others to fix it. If I have a shred of humanity within me, I believe more so now than ever that I must put my duty to this world before my fear of failure.”
