WHAT PEOPLE SAY
SJYC inspired me to create an impact on my community. It helped me understand the causes, symptoms, and solutions to different conflicts in modern society.
I made so many new friends in SJYC. It made me realise the power that we can possess when we accept each other's differences rather than arguing about it.
I have always wanted to experience how living in a UWC is like, since I love engaging people with different cultures and backgrounds. SJYC has made my summer a memorable and honourable one.
