Students laughing

Over the last 17 years or so, there are so many things that you would have done.

Things that you would have been acknowledged for, things that went unnoticed, and may have slipped the attention of others.

TELL US ABOUT YOU!

We want to know what keeps you going, what inspires you, things that you dream of, events you have participated in (MUN/dance/debate/drawing/ anything!)

An important part of the application form is the personal statement. You may take the help of your parents, your school counselor or maybe your friends to complete this.

The mentors at ISDI who will be involved in your journey will make a note of every little thing that you tell us, so keep going!
