Let’s hear from Ibukunoluwa Aribilola on her experience with ASA:
‘On arriving at ASA last year, I was having a tough time balancing the different aspect of my life as I had to make new friends, adapt to a new environment and maintain good grades. However, the support I received from every single staff member including the volunteering progression mentors made it so easy for me to get used to the community. My appreciation for these efforts made me realize that I would like to give back to ASA after graduation. I thought there was no better way to do that than to volunteer as a progression mentor for 3 months while I apply to universities to study biomedical engineering .
Now in ASA as a progression mentor, I feel so good each time a student comes to me for help with studies and personal life; I am always happy to help. I am currently running SAT classes for the students who would be taking the SATs this year as I have written the exam before. I hope that by the end of this year, the girls would have learnt a lot from me and vice versa.’
Ibukun graduated from ASA in June 2017. In her final CIE A-Levels she received an astounding A* A* A in Maths, Further Maths and Physics. While at ASA Ibukun decided to take a year out after graduating and we have the privilege that she has decided to spend part of that year with us here at ASA. While she is with us she is also applying to top Universities around the world and we wish her luck with the admissions process.
