Ana-Caterina, a 10 grade scholarship student at Avenor College, gives her top 3 reasons why she thinks you should apply for a scholarship at our school. We invite you to read them and to apply for a scholarship at Avenor College.

My name is Caterina and I’ve been a scholarship student at Avenor for a long time now. I can say that I consider myself an ‘Avenor Ambassador’ already. For you to have a better outlook, I think I can sum up and share my unique experience as an Avenor scholarship student through the top 3 highlights that made my school years at Avenor amazing from both an academic and personal perspective. I know that each academic journey is unique, but I know for sure that the years you will spend in our school will be amazing, both academically and personally.

  • Develop your communication and leadership skills

The fact that the academic results of the Avenor College students are remarkable is already known, but I want to talk to you about how you can develop personally as a scholarship student in my school. Each scholarship project will teach you how to develop your personality, communication and leadership skills, and how to interact with many types of people. That, I think, is the key to this programme – to me, the Avenor College Scholarship offered me the opportunity to explore more aspects of my personality and to capitalize on every skill I acquired.

Starting from the fact that we have the benefit of choosing our own subjects, to the fact that teachers are never bothered when students express their opinions, all these things help us to build ourselves as genuine and sincere individuals towards ourselves, well rounded people, I would say. I believe that this is essential for the development as future citizens of the modern world.

  • Your voice is heard by the school`s management

I realized how lucky we are because we had the opportunity to live experiences outside of “Our Avenor”. As scholarship students, we have amazing opportunities: we meet students from other schools, we are part of conferences and discussions with interesting people, top entrepreneurs, university teachers and personalities from all over the world. We travel and experience life on and off campus. These are some of our dearest memories. I remember fondly the moment when I participated in the Youth Summit Transylvania – a meeting of students from all over the world; of all the debate competitions and I remember with gratitude all the meetings with potential teachers in the school, to whom we had the opportunity to give feedback, we had the opportunity to choose for ourselves and on behalf of our school. As a student at Avenor College, it will be very clear to you that you are an important factor in the entire decision-making process.

  •  Find your friends and mentors in the community

When I first started writing this “top 3”, I found myself thinking about what I really love about Avenor. It was very easy for me to find the answer: I love the community, the fact that my friends are here, the fact that my voice is heard here. Wherever I go in the world, Avenor will always be an important part of my personality and extremely dear to my heart. You, my future colleagues, will find your friends here and you will learn that it is very easy to trust people around you. When you have a relaxed relationship with your teachers, the learning process becomes easier and more efficient.

Even if I talk to you about the special community we have here in Avenor, and even though I consider it one of our most valuable assets as a school, I think that in each school there should be a sense of individuality for the students. Fortunately, students can find their individuality at Avenor. Each student is seen as an authentic individual, has opportunities folded on his abilities and each feels that he has a road ahead that is adapted to their dreams and passions.
