"Avon’s diversity has allowed me to explore my passions and understand myself by studying other people's perspectives."
"I came to the United States for a peek at a culture about which I knew very little, and an all-boys environment has facilitated my mission: inside the classroom, I learn how people approach academic topics; outside the classroom, I learn the philosophy of life that is distinctly American. Avon’s diversity allowed me to explore my passions and understand myself by studying others’ perspectives. During my four years at Avon I developed a strong passion for the arts—fine arts, performing arts, and literary arts—and discovered the potential within me that would allow me to form a unique perspective about the arts. A challenge for me, as an artist, has been that I cannot easily identify someone who shares my passion, but that challenge has taught me the valuable skill of being able to communicate with those with different passions. For this, I am grateful."
