Norwegian, Vilde McKellar Nilsen ‘16, attended ASB from Grades 10 to 12, together with her younger sister, Karoline, who was in Grades 6 to 9. She is currently in her last semester at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) where she has been studying for the last five years (except for an exchange semester in Melbourne, Australia) for a MSc in Economics and Business Administration with a specialization in Strategy and Management.

“I will start working at Sopra Steria in Oslo as a Business Consultant this fall. I’m excited to enter the “real world” and contribute to something of value. I’m passionate about sustainability and climate change, and I’m hoping that my future role will allow me to put sustainability on the agendas of companies across Norway and Scandinavia.”

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

“Ms. Corral (SLL) and Ms. Nash (English Lang & Lit) are the teachers who really made me feel welcome with their warm nature and encouragement. Their classes were always fun and lighthearted, and the SLL class especially felt like a small family.”

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

“I was a part of Sharing to Learn for two years at the same local school and really enjoyed that. It was also a great chance for me as a foreigner to get a deeper insight into the Catalan culture.”

What would be a favorite ASB memory?

“Definitely my graduation, it was a fun event and a great ending to three wonderful years. I also loved spirit week, Halloween, International Day and every other event! They really brought out the multicultural spirit of ASB and connected people across grades and nationalities.”

In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

“The strong feeling of community that they’ve managed to create despite people coming and going continuously.”

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