Meet Asia Mikulska '20, who attended ASB for 15 years, since PK3. With roots in Warsaw, Asia was raised in Barcelona. "I wouldn't limit myself to calling only one place home," she shares, "home is where you feel secure and loved." Asia's sister, Pola '17, is currently completing her degree in Business and Marketing from the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. Asia started her degree in psychology at Radboud University in The Netherlands this year and is "enjoying it, enormously!"



Tell us about any service activities you were involved in at ASB.

"In the summer of 2019, I joined 'OPWALL,' a two-week service trip to Indonesia with Mr. Motta. We assisted researchers with their data collection, living one week on the land working in a forest and the other week on a beach. It was great to bond with other international students from Australia. Still, most importantly, we were able to see how locals enjoyed their lives and were happy even though they were much less privileged than we were."



What would be a favorite ASB memory?

"It would have to be a volleyball tournament in Geneva, Switzerland. We stayed with a host family who was supposed to drive us to the school the next morning for a game. However, the next morning, when we woke up we noticed that no one else was awake, and since it was already late, we had to get to the school by ourselves. It was truly an experience, being stressed in an unknown city and finding our way to our destination. At last, we were pretty late, but we made it."



In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

"There is an exceptional connection between students and teachers at ASB, which makes it feel like a family and inspires students to go to school every day, even when we aren't feeling our best."



What are you thinking about doing after graduating from university?

"I'm still not quite sure; psychology is a vast topic. I initially opted for psychology because I enjoyed it during my last two years of high school, and I was interested in sports psychology (from playing volleyball for so long and experiencing different situations). I am still discovering the multiple careers I can pursue after graduating from university."

Any advice for ASB high school students?

"Hand in everything on time and start every assignment early; this will help with time management and help you avoid stress. Most importantly, don't leave anything to the last minute!

If you could describe ASB in one word, what would it be?

"Memorable."
