Priya

Priyadarshini Rajendran, known around the school simply as “Priya”, has been a part of the HIS community for a little over a year. Since her arrival, Priya became an active member of our community. She is the secretary of student council (with her excellent note-taking skills) and is a newspaper member. Priya is also involved with the Harare Children’s Home and Mabvuku clubs, is a part of MUN, and was a key member of the group that organized the senior lounge. If Priya could change one thing about her high school experience at HIS, she would like to haven been involved in more creative activities.

Priya doesn’t like to pick favorites and said the following about teachers at HIS: “I love all of my teachers at this school. They have all been awesome in many different ways. I mean I don’t even know how to explain. Before coming here I was so scared for so many reasons, first of all my education because of change in teachers and also the syllabus. I was really scared about the friends I would get, as well as the teachers I would get. But the teachers were so supportive, they always made sure I blended in and became part of this school. They have definitely made HIS a super memorable experience, I am glad I moved out of my old school and got to see and experience this.”. After graduating Priya aspires to study medicine, although job-wise she would like to become a diplomat like her dad.

 

Sarah

Sarah Donahue has been a part of the HIS community since kindergarten. Her hobbies and interests include cooking, baking, listening to ‘old-time’ music and drawing. She has been a part of several service clubs, including Harare Children’s Home for four years, and genuinely enjoys service-oriented projects such as the Mavuku club and the NHS which she has been a part of for two years. Sarah currently serves as the vice president of the NHS and feels that She this gives her a chance to do more significant ‘hand-on’ projects and improve the lives of others.

In terms of ISSEA tournaments, Sarah has been a part of the Track and Field team in 2015 and has participated in the recent Art and Drama ISSEA, focusing on the Art section. Her experience with both ISSEAs was eye-opening and a chance to meet incredible, new people.

Sarah loves the atmosphere of HIS and appreciates the friendliness of the community. She also loves how the school itself is small enough that she knows everybody. In her opinion, one of the best parts of being a senior is that it is a really exciting year because it is a year of transition, however she believes it is also one of the worst because it goes by so quickly. Her advice to the juniors for the upcoming IB2 would be to enjoy the year while they can because it flies by and to not procrastinate at all costs. In the future she sees herself studying environmental studies, as she wants to be an environmentalist or an environmental speaker, however she is still unclear on which of the two she will choose. Finally her favorite quote is “ I’m not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of superman. I’m living on” by David Bowie.

 

Simran

Simran Kumar, a lover of Art and Science, has been a part of the HIS community for 4 years. Having spent her entire high school year at HIS, Simran is no stranger to the struggles of the IB system. Of course after 2 years of IB she excited for her new adventures in studying Mechanical Engineering. Currently Simran wishes to return to India for her studies but as any international students there is always so much of the world to choose from. In school activities, Simran has participated in STEM ISSEA. Simran enjoys the EZ trips that she has had with her class and appreciates the bonding and exploring the wonders of Zimbabwe. No matter what her future hold, Warthogs World and HIS hope that she enjoys the ride.

 

Shasha

Lumos!

Allow me to shed light on the Harry Potter-loving Zumba King known as Shasha Vengesayi. Shasha has been at H.I.S for 3 years and he was involved in the Mabvuku Project, GISS, MUN, and Harare Children’s Home. His favorite thing about H.I.S is the nature and the peacocks, but what he’ll miss the most are his “dear friends and favorite teachers”. Shasha’s favorite book is the Bible and it is no surprise – given the dancer that he is – that Michael Jackson is his favorite artist ever.

After High School, Shasha plans on going to the US to study medicine and become a paediatrician. Finally, he leaves us with a quote to live by: “life is like an exam, you never know what your gonna get, when you’re gonna get it, and you can’t copy someone else’s answers because we’re writing different papers”.
