Victor aims to uphold the mission and vision of the Academy by treating all students equally and with care. 

“Ensuring small things like students get hot water in the morning goes a long way in enabling them to be more productive at school, “ explained Victor.

From his time at the Academy, Victor’s favourite part is interacting with students from different parts of the world. “It allows me to be more open-minded,” added Victor.
