The Class of 2005
First Head Boy
Vice President at Deutsche Bank, London
"Joining DAIS in its very first year afforded many unique opportunities. Organising the student body, editing its first annual magazine, hosting of events (from inter-house swim meets to international MUN conferences) are all treasured memories. But beyond these, DAIS instilled three core beliefs which I carry to this day. First, you are only limited by your imagination. Our initiatives were supported and encouraged by the School. Second, the path to excellence is marked by the quality of your peers. I was fortunate to attend the school with some of the cleverest, most articulate, and driven peers I've ever met - many of whom remain friends to this day. And third, there is no substitute for independent thought. To draw clarity from information overload, avoid ingesting others' biases, and be free to articulate one's independent view, is an invaluable education which I carry to this day."
