When asked, what she remembers as her favourite GISB memory, Emilia does not only mention the GISB community and the class trips to the White Mountains or Hamburg and Berlin … but also a very special GISB moment:
“My favourite GISB memory was during art class in twelfth grade while we were painting abstract self-portraits. A four-year-old Kindergarten student came up to me, inspected my painting critically and told me that it didn’t resemble me at all – because ‘clearly, humans don’t have purple lips, or eyes this big, or pointy faces’. He was talking about cubic forms, exaggeration of facial features and the use of eccentric colours! I could not stop smiling.”
She is more than excited to be working on the GISB Alumni Network with the mission to build and establish a platform for GISB students and families to connect and reconnect.
“Hopefully, soon, I will be able to come over for a long overdue visit!”
