By Chavisa (Dee Dee) Boonpiti, Class of 2018
I was admitted to New York University as a Media, Culture and Communications major. Media studies was a subject that was inaccessible to me prior to entering college, so once I started classes and I found that it was something I enjoyed, I was relieved – it gave me a huge boost of confidence knowing that it was the right major for me.
Between chartering a sorority, managing the marketing for a start-up my friends and Icreated, and running around lower Manhattan from class to class, my first semester was hectic. I strongly believe that having experienced the IB programme helped me in managing my time, and especially in a city like New York, where getting involved and keeping busy is crucial as a way to not feel isolated. I look forward to the challenges the city and NYU has in store for me.
