After leaving Oneness to move back home to the Netherlands in 2013, I realized I had left a special place. Oneness had an idea and sense of kindness and fairness which I have yet to experience again, and it was exactly what I missed the most at my new school. Oneness brings back vivid memories of going on field trips, pizza Fridays, and, of course, class pet iguana Iggy in the Arbor.

Currently, I'm packing my bags to leave home and move to Armenia, where I'm attending the United World College of Dilijan. It's a program (in many ways similar to Oneness) where students from 80+ countries attend a boarding school, the goal being to learn from each other. So far, the experience is fantastic, and I couldn't be more grateful. I'll finish by saying that the values of Oneness have shaped me to be the person I am today.
