Anjani, a class 12 student at Apeejay Svran Global School Faridabad, Sector 21-D aspires to become a musician. Not only that, she wants to be one of the top names in the South Korean industry. Inspired by music bands K-Pop and BTS, this motivated learner is soon to join a university in South Korea. When asked why South Korea, she says, “I love the discipline and competitiveness in the country. I want a life like that.” In an interview, Anjani shares glimpses from her school life and how her association with Apeejay became a game-changer for her to realise her potential. Read On:  

When did you enroll at Apeejay Svran Global School?

I joined in grade 9. Shortly after that, the Covid-19 pandemic hit and we began online schooling. So, I did not get the chance to explore my school campus at that time. But, since my association with Apeejay, I have noticed several changes in myself. I have become more confident. My teachers here have made me realise my dreams and potential. I feel like I have become the best version of myself and I am also doing well academically.

How has been your back-to-school experience?

It is a 5 star rating. It is great to be part of the morning assemblies, do a daily prayer, take a pledge and sing the school song. I feel like being part of a community with other students. I have also got the chance to know our juniors, teachers and classmates better. At school, I enjoy the games a lot. Returning to campus is the best thing! I love going to school and I would really miss it once I graduate. 

What are some exciting things on campus?

There is so much to do. We have donation drives, Interact Club and social activities to be part of. I am learning through many hands-on and practical techniques from my teachers. The school corridors and black boards are prettier now and we have so many photographs and quotes on the school walls. Looking at them, I feel very motivated. The school is also following great sanitation practices post the Covid-19 pandemic.

What is your future ambition?

I want to pursue a degree in Bachelors of Business Administration (B.B.A) from Seoul National University or Korea University. These are some of the institutes I am targeting for my admission. I have looked into the documents needed and currently, am preparing to take a TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean) and IELTS examination. The applications for the course will begin in February next year.

To get into a South Korean university is tough because they want students to have excellent grades, and with that, a good understanding and work ethic. I also write songs in Korean and English. I would love to be part of the South Korean music scene one day. I am fascinated with the Korean language. It is beautiful.

For those interested in studying abroad, your advice?

I can tell you about South Korea since that is my dream destination for studying abroad. One needs to have excellent grades for it. Prepare your documents in advance and seek recommendations from your teachers. My final tip is to write everything honestly in the Statement of Purpose (SOP) so that you are confident during the final interview round.
