Focusing丨FLIS毕业生Kaiden: 从彩票在线注册网到欧洲名校

Kaiden goes from FLIS to AUBG


去年参加中学毕业典礼的家长与学子或许还记得仪式上的一幕:来自美国的十二年级毕业生Kaiden同学与母亲一同献唱,曲毕,母子相拥,动人不已。
Parents and children who attended last year's secondary school graduation ceremony may still remember this beautiful scene at the ceremony: Kaiden, a 12th grade graduate from the United States, sang with his mother, and after the song, the mother and son embraced each other, a touching moment. 



在FLIS学习的几年间,Kaiden同学迅速与同学们打成一片,积极参加各种校内活动,也不时登台表达他对音乐与演出的热爱;与此同时,学术上他亦赢得教师们交口称赞,毕业典礼上,多位教师、同学纷纷表达了对他的不舍与祝福。
From the start of his study at Fuzhou Lakeside International School, Kaiden quickly bonded with his classmates, actively participating in various school activities and occasionally appearing on stage to express his love for music and performance; at the same time, he also won the praise of his teachers for his academic performance. At the graduation ceremony, a number of teachers and students expressed their best wishes for him.



在FLIS外教团队及升学规划老师的协助下,Kaiden同学顺利获得数所大学的录取通知书,最终,他选择了位于保加利亚的保加利亚美国大学。乍看之下,这一选择兴许令人略感不解,毕竟,他不仅得到了几所欧洲大学的录取通知书,亦拿下家乡美国佛罗里达州一些大学的录取通知书,那么,他缘何放弃回归故土,选择了陌生的欧洲大陆呢?
With the help of the FLIS teachers and FLIS college counselors, Kaiden obtained offers from several universities and eventually chose the American University of Bulgaria in Blagoevgrad. This may have seemed like an unlikely choice as he had been accepted by several universities in other European countries as well as in his home state of Florida, but he concluded that this particular university is the one that actually met all his criteria for what he was looking for in a school so this made his decision an easy one. So why did he choose the strange continent of Europe?



保加利亚美国大学毕业生超高的就业率与升学率是吸引Kaiden的一点。该校大多数毕业生毕业后立即在社会、IT和政治等多个领域及行业开始他们的职业生涯;校友就职于包括谷歌、微软、BBC和欧洲银行在内的顶级国际企业。或在斯坦福大学、哈佛大学、伦敦政治经济学院和麻省理工学院等全球顶尖级学府继续深造。此外,保加利亚美国大学以全英文教学,学生主体为来自五湖四海的国际生,多文化熔炉的环境亦令人心生向往。
The success rate of the school’s graduates with over 99% of their alumni gaining employment after graduation or enrolling in grad school is one thing that attracted Kaiden. The majority of the graduates begin their careers immediately after graduation in a variety of fields and industries including social services, IT, and politics. Alumni work for top international companies including Google, Microsoft, the BBC, and European banks, or pursue further studies at top global institutions such as Stanford University, Harvard University, London School of Economics and Political Science, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In addition, the American University of Bulgaria teaches all courses in English, with an international student body from all over the world, and the multicultural melting pot environment is very inspirational.



如今,Kaiden已在大学安顿下来。甫一抵达大学所在小城布拉戈耶夫格勒,映入眼帘的便是覆盖着皑皑白雪的青山与宽阔的草地,这是一座安静而有魅力的城市。他很快与室友、同学熟悉起来,兴致勃勃地开始探索未来几年他将栖息的大学与城市。Kaiden在大学主修计算机科学与宏观经济学,辅修音乐,他梦想着成为程序及游戏设计师。每天,他都花很长时间漫步城市,感受此地的悠闲。他还参加了不少活动,诸如年度国际舞蹈与美食节,在这一盛宴上,来自全球的学生会制作家乡的特色美食,并跳起传统舞蹈。
Kaiden has now settled in at the university. Upon arrival in the college town of Blagoevgrad, where the university is located, the first thing he noticed on the scenic route to the town were the snow-capped mountains and wide meadows, along with the calm and charming inner city. Kaiden will be pursuing dual degrees in Computer Science and Macro-Economics with a minor in Music to fulfill his dream of being a programmer and game designer. He often takes long walks around town to explore the hilly terrain of the town, experiencing its laid back and simple design. He also participates in a number of events such as the annual International Dance and Taste Fest, where many students represent their home countries by making delicious food and engaging in traditional dances.



Kaiden对暑期实习亦怀有许多憧憬。许多大学生会利用假期参加工作旅行项目,旅行与勤工俭学一举两得,这个夏天,他就将前往田纳西州的纳什维尔参加此类暑期项目。让我们祝福Kaiden, 希望这个腼腆而热情的大男孩在大学继续发光发热,一切顺利!
Kaiden also has plans for various summer internships. Many students participate in Work and Travel programs to travel the world and fund their education for the next semester, and this summer Kaiden will be traveling to Nashville, Tennessee for his first summer internship. Let's wish Kaiden the best, and may this humble yet ambitious big boy continue to grow and glow in college!
