Hi, I’m an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Graduate

As a result of the Trump Administration plan to cut back in education. I'd like to take a moment to share my educational journey thus far.

I wasn't sure if it was the passion in which the students held for their school, or if it was the drive they carried to improve campus life at Hampton.
