Class of 2024

Originally joining EF Academy after dreaming of studying abroad, it only took Yasmin less than a year to realize she had discovered a place where she belonged. After making memories, meeting her best friends, and learning new life skills—she knew she was here to stay.

Learning to live away from home can be daunting, but Yasmin never felt uncomfortable with her House Parent by her side. Living among faculty and staff, these individuals have become her family. She never thought she would create such strong relationships, but spending every day and night with her peers and teachers has created unbreakable bonds and friendships that will last a lifetime.

“I was very shy as a child, but coming here, I saw it as a chance to come out of my shell. At first, I was so homesick and scared, but in the three years I’ve been here, I’ve come a really long way. I’ve joined all types of clubs, I’m president of the National Honor Society, I have no issue speaking in front of people, and I feel really confident now.”

Yasmin's favorite part of EF Academy is her teachers. Every day, Yasmin enjoys attending class because she is encouraged to leave her comfort zone. Whether in her studies, the dorm room, or throughout clubs & activities, Yasmin always feels cared for. She always feels supported by teachers, in the classroom and in life.
