AISB 2023 Graduation Speech by Minori
Hi, everyone. I want to begin by saying thank you to all of you including my parents, all
teachers, nannies, and all friends here. I still cannot believe that we, as year 12 students, are preparing to graduate from AISB. I have been at this school for 4 years and made lots of memories here with you guys, and it has been an honour to know you all.
When I came here I was in Y9 and I was really nervous because of course I had to talk in English and sometimes I was so scared to make mistakes in some English words to
communicate with my classmates. However, as long as I talked to everyone and spent a lot of time with them, I could be more confident in myself and I didn’t feel any fear in talking with my friends.
I have also grown stronger because I came to this school and AISB has given me the
opportunity to challenge myself. For example, when I was in my old school, I struggled in Mathematics. Throughout my time at AISB I have been given the opportunity to overcome my weakness and have grown greatly in confidence. As a result, I have been given the chance to be proud of myself by leaping my insecurity toward mathematics.
This school is a great place which encourages every student to enhance their ability. I like this school’s atmosphere as it welcomes all to come and feel at home and enthusiastic.
I love this school and I am so appreciative of my parents allowing me to get the opportunity to come here. Before I began here, my parents were worried about me, but AISB has made me feel comfortable, calm and welcome. Finally, we have come to this moment, and it is time to go to the next step. So I will say thank you for both your support and I am so sorry that I made you feel anxious about my path.
I want to finish by thanking Mr. Brenton our director, Mr. Andre as the head of secondary
teachers. I hope I will not forget what I have learned from your lectures. Also, thank you to all the nannies for serving snacks, drinks and lunches every time and cleaning up the whole buildings to make our school lives better.
Finally, to all of you guys, thank you for being my friends. Because of you guys, I could make lots of great memories and have a great time with all of you. I’m a little bit sad to say goodbye to you guys for now, but fortunately, I will stay here in Bangkok, so you can chat with me and we can see each other when you are free!
Thank you so much for today's graduation ceremony and I wish you all the best of luck in the future!
