Hi, my name is Kristyna Zemanova. I graduated from Park Lane International School in the year of 2021. I attended Park Lane for 5 years and what an experience it has been – the first few months were tough, but now, five years later I am so grateful for the opportunity to study at this school. The last 2 years of doing the rigorous IB Diploma were one of the hardest years of my life with the constant thoughts of giving up, but I kept on going and working hard and I am happy to see that my perseverance has paid off. I have received offers from multiple schools among which is the University of Essex where I hope to continue my studies. Having studied the IB Diploma I feel much more prepared for university life. Park Lane has given me invaluable skills and has opened the doors to the future I never imagined I would have. Although I am glad to have finished high school and excited to start this new chapter in my life, I will definitely remember and miss Park Lane, the teachers and the students. Now it’s time for a new adventure in life!
