Orchestra Has Totally Changed My Life
I have failed countless of times, but I continue to aspire for success with the motivation and support of my teachers and friends.

Grade 9 Student Manado Independent School
IN my first few years as a student of Manado Independent School (MIS), I had an amazing time participating in an activity called “Cornerstone.”
I did many activities in “Cornerstone” that helped improve my writing and speaking skills.
For me, writing is a pursuit that I have always found challenging.
I enjoy writing freely, but when it comes to an assignment involving formal writing, it is the starting process that I don’t really look forward to.
However, I know that writing is a process, and it can be honed gradually.
The academic and character formation in MIS play a big role in my life now that I am a senior in Middle School.
I know that it will even matter more after graduation. I will forever cherish my learning experiences in my Alma Mater.
One of my favorite activities in MIS is being in the orchestra for my arts class.
I am a member of the string ensemble for two years now, and this has totally changed my life.
