Congrats to Millie Class of 2021!

Congrats to Millie Class of 2021!

Congratulations to Millie’s Class of 2021 graduates! Here at Millie, we want to celebrate all their achievements, hard work, and perseverance. If you're seeking inspiration for your own journey to university or are simply curious about what other graduates are up to, continue reading!

As an international school student, you face unique challenges that most prep books don't address. You might be navigating a curriculum unfamiliar to your parents, or perhaps you have to adapt to new curricula every few years due to frequent relocations by your family. While this lifestyle offers numerous opportunities to study and live in different countries, it also demands high adaptability from a young age, and you might often grapple with decision paralysis.

Despite these unique challenges, our students from places like Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and Kuwait have received offers from prestigious global universities such as the University of Cambridge, Johns Hopkins University, Imperial College London, University of Michigan, Rice University, University of Southern California, UBC, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and many others. We couldn't be prouder of this cohort!

In conclusion, while Millie’s Class of 2021 has just embarked on their university journey, we recognize that many of you might be contemplating a gap year or remain uncertain about your major. No worries! A gap year can be a fantastic opportunity to explore new interests and take a brief academic hiatus. At Millie, we offer an internship program for students aiming to make their gap year both meaningful and productive.
