    I had the great fortune to attend a United World College school 28 years ago. It changed the course of my life and opened countless doors. I got a great, unique education, have friends all over the world and learnt firsthand the value of international understanding. As a bonus, I also met my amazing Bermudian wife in Art class! Still happily married.

    Please help spread the word about this amazing opportunity. Many of the local IB schools won’t even tell their students about this, as they’re afraid they’ll lose their brightest ones to this movement.
