Spotlight On Our Student Anna

This week we spotlight Anna from Grade 12, who has been at ISR since her Kindergarten days. Anna is currently preparing for her IB final exams and would like to study mechanical engineering in Aachen after graduating ISR. For Anna and her whole family, sport is an important part of their lives. Anna is passionate about carriage driving. Anna has won several tournaments and this summer she became the Show Champion with her horse Titus at the annual Rheinischen Championship for Carriage Drivers.

In order to be able to practice this sport regularly, Anna often works on her own carriage to make improvements and to prepare it after long tournament days. She chose to study mechanical engineering in order to better understand the construction of her carriage and to optimize it for future competitions. We are extremely impressed by Anna’s determination and are sure that she will bring home many more medals.

Another passion of Anna is photography. So for her CAS project, she decided to create calendars with her own photos and sell them. The proceeds will be donated to the charity organization “Education for all e. V.” which supports the Masaai School in Kenya. Anna traveled with her parents last summer to the Masaai Mara Natural Reserve and got to know the school first hand. Her family enjoyed safari rides, which allowed Anna to collect plenty of photographs for her calendar. Anna has consciously chosen the organization “Education for all e. V.” in order to provide the students with education and teaching materials.

With her sporting successes and her social commitment, she is a wonderful role model for her peers! We are proud to spotlight Anna, one of many of ISR’s outstanding students!

Our Student Spotlight project aims to highlight every Friday one of our outstanding students who is, appropriate to this year’s theme, striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if its academic success, a special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
