The students who received an award for the Challenge were David Liu, David Xiao, Shining Tan and Gabriella Park.
Then, the IB department welcomed an former SIPFLS BC student, who is currently junior at UC Berkeley studying Economics. Edward Xu gave a motivational talk with our students by sharing with us his high school life at SIPFLS and the up and downs of his university application process. In his conclusion, he encouraged students to prioritise what is important in their lives and to learn how to balance work and play so precious time is not wasted.
