Italian Yannick Manzoni ‘19 attended ASB from Grades 8 to 12. Now in his second year at Hotelschool The Hague (Amsterdam campus), he is pursuing a degree in hospitality and business management.

“I want to thank all the incredible teachers and students that I met during my years at ASB. I hope to be able to visit soon and have an amazing class reunion!”



What experiences or teachers from ASB might have inspired who you are today?

“Mr. Bingle was definitely one of the teachers that impacted me the most. He always showed up with a smile and made my History and TOK classes a lot of fun.”



Tell us a little about any extracurricular or service activities you were involved in at ASB.

“I was really inspired by Refugart, a fundraising event, where students and teachers came together to raise money for refugees by spreading awareness within the ASB community. It showed me how even the most basic and simple project could completely change and help the situation of thousands of people. It made me realize how no one can do everything, but everyone can do something, which is a statement by which I live.

I also participated in both soccer and basketball teams, traveling to cities like Zurich, Lisbon, and Valencia to play tournaments. During these trips, I met incredible people and formed phenomenal friendships with fellow ASB students as well as students from other international schools.



I was also involved in MUN from G10-12, which was an experience that opened my mind and allowed me to exchange ideas and knowledge with other international students.

What would be a favorite ASB memory?

“To be honest, the last football tournament will always have a special place in my heart. It was the last year of school for many of us, and we were able to reach the final and win, closing an amazing chapter of our lives with a happy ending.”  



In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

“The sense of community and how much the teachers care about you. When I first joined ASB, I barely spoke English and had just moved to Barcelona. After just a few weeks, I already felt at home. I had this strong sense of community with the other students and teachers. It was simply a magical feeling of happiness and acceptance.”



ASB in one word?

“Sensational.”
