Video: ISM Kennedy’s Story

What do we all want? The very best of course. Ex ISM student Kennedy Mmasi's parents wanted the finest education in East Africa for their son. Thats why they enrolled him at International School Moshi. Look where he is now!

Kennedy from Arusha, was offered a full four year scholarship to Harvard University to study Economics. He was one of 35,000 applicants for a scholarship at the world famous University.

My dream is to study hard, do the best I can and come back to Tanzania to work in either the education or energy sectors.

But whilst he has a big dream and the most amazing career mapped out ahead of him, Kennedy is very keen to emphasise that “I owe so much to my parents for believing in me and ensuring I went to the best school in Tanzania to do the IB Diploma. I can never thank them enough for sending me to ISM”

What made Kennedy stand out when he went through the application process? Firstly Kennedy had spent the 2 years studying the IB Diploma with us at ISM the first IB Diploma school in Africa. This course of study was one of the key factors that ensured his success.

Kennedy says "The IB Diploma pro- vides a broad curriculum with a great deal of emphasis on critical think- ing, creativity, multiple perspectives, and research skills, as well as action through service in the community.
