International Alumnae Student Returns to Inspire Students
Takapuna Grammar School welcomed back Stephanie Wang (2015-2017) to speak with the students. Stephanie was a top scholar during her time at TGS and received our first ever 45 top mark in our International Baccalaureate Diploma in 2017.
Stephanie was offered university places at UCL, Cambridge, Melbourne and chose Hong Kong University to study. During her visit, Stephanie spoke with students on her time at TGS and how it influenced her and prepared her for a chosen career. She recounted experiences both at TGS and at university, highlighting challenges and the pivotal moments that shaped her path towards success.
Stephanie now works at UBS Investment Banking in Hong Kong. She emphasised the importance of taking opportunities, making choices relevant to your personal ambitions. Her words resonated deeply with the audience and one of the most inspiring aspects of Stephanie's visit was the interactive session that followed her speech.
Stephanie's appreciation of the school's nurturing environment was evident and she recalled how TGS had provided the foundation for her future accomplishments. Grant Simpkins, International Director of Students, expressed his gratitude to Stephanie for taking the time to visit.
