Originally from The Netherlands, Jan Davidzon '16 attended ASB from Grades 10-12 together with his three siblings, two of whom also graduated from ASB. 

Following high school, Jan completed a BSc in International Business Administration at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam (EUR), within the Rotterdam School of Management faculty. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Strategic Management at EUR, although has postponed his thesis to next year to make room for an internship at Caldic in Rotterdam - a global full-service solution provider for food, pharma, personal care and industrial markets - which he will commence in September.

Which teachers from ASB might have inspired who you are today?

"I had a good connection with all my teachers at ASB and I think that each teacher taught me a lot."

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

"I was part of the ASB basketball team as well as one outside of school. I was in a band with my friends where I played the drums. We used to play at school quite often, and we also performed at our graduation and the annual talent show. I also helped with the RefugArt charity auction as the auctioneer and organized our Prom.” 

What would be a favorite ASB memory?

"Graduation probably. It was a bittersweet moment as I knew I wouldn't see my friends as much as I had during high school as everyone would be leaving on new adventures to college in different countries etc."

In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

"It was effortless to feel at home. From my first week, I already had a great group of friends with whom I still speak. I had a lot of fun during my time in Barcelona and ASB.” 

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

"For me, it was mostly fun and refreshing. People came and went, which made it a school that was constantly changing."
