Aman braving the shave!

Taking a stand for education

Aman before the headshave

“I have always believed that education is a powerful tool that has the potential to transform lives. As I reflect on my own educational journey, I am immensely grateful for the opportunities that have shaped my childhood and brought me to where I am today. These opportunities were made possible through the generous donations that supported my studies, and now, it’s my turn to pay it forward.

Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to contribute to a cause close to my heart through an event organized by Amnesty International at our school. The challenge? Shaving my head – a symbolic gesture that went beyond a personal transformation.

The funds I raised during this event, totaling an amazing £266, will be directed towards supporting the Pestalozzi International Foundation. This foundation has been instrumental in funding my International Baccalaureate education here at the college. It’s not just about repaying a debt of gratitude; it’s about investing in the potential of young minds and fostering a community that values education.

This initiative goes beyond the immediate impact – it’s an investment in the future. The funds raised will support upcoming students sponsored by the Pestalozzi International Foundation, providing them with the same opportunities I have been fortunate to receive.

Participating in this event was not only a chance to give back but also a personal journey of growth. Shaving my head for a good cause was a first-time experience, and it pushed me out of my comfort zone. Surprisingly, it became a powerful catalyst for building confidence. The realization that a small, symbolic act could contribute to something much larger was empowering.

To all those who supported and donated, thank you for being a part of this meaningful journey. I encourage everyone to recognize the potential within young minds and consider investing in education. They are the pillars of the future, and your donations will play a crucial role in shaping a better tomorrow.

Let’s continue to pay it forward, inspire others to do the same, and collectively build a brighter future through education.”
