February 17, 2021The Next Generation - Featuring Ismail Omar

How long have you been a student at Aberdeen Hall?

Since September 2018.

2020 has been a year of transition in many ways. How do you feel you’ve personally changed or grown over the last year?

Over the past year, I have learned the value of the company of those around me. I have missed seeing my peers, but I have spent a lot of time with my family and realized how much I value them.

What changes have you seen in society as a whole that you think are a result of the political and social upheaval we’ve experienced this year?

Society seems to have become more restless over the past year, I suppose due to the increased tension the global climate has caused. The economy has suffered, the US election occurred, and Covid-19 has altered the lives of everyone. As a result, people seem to be increasingly anxious.

How can we as a school ensure that we are doing all we can do to change and grow along with the changing times?

The world is always changing and will never be still. Therefore, the school must always be able to adapt and be open to changes to keep up with the world around it.

What do you think are the major challenges the world will be facing over the next five years?

Covid-19 will certainly be a great challenge that the world will continue to face over the next few years. The increasingly deteriorating environment will also be of great concern in the coming years.

Speaking of the future, what are your post-secondary plans?

I plan on attending university to study mathematics or computer science.

What are your career aspirations? How do you see yourself contributing to your community?

I plan to work in mathematical modeling, contributing to the community by providing predictions and simulations of the real world.

Do you have any words of wisdom for future AHPS grads?

Don’t worry too much.
