At UWC I was immersed in a microcosm of the world and granted considerable freedom to initiate and lead projects at only 17 years old. [...]

Olivier Sebastiaan Roekens (RCN 2019)

After having spent most of my summer traveling around Asia visiting friends and taking some time to reflect upon my UWC experience, I started studying Liberal Arts and Sciences at Leiden University College in The Hague. Here I got involved in the UNICEF Student team, where I spend most of my time organizing different events ranging from movie nights to lectures, to raise awareness about our ongoing projects. Currently [...]

A couple of weeks after grad, I started working on full time in Oslo in the national committee for Operation Day's Work (ODW). I missed the fjord, my roommates and basically everything about RCN, but I think I am sort of used to live in a city now. In the committee we did a lot of fun work, but the best part was the visit from two young [...]

Ingebjørg Flyum Bjørlo (RCN ’17-’19)

I graduated less than a year ago and I’ve already managed to get so many experiences in that time. In August I moved to a studio apartment in Oslo and start a bachelor in screenwriting and playwriting and quickly got a part time job at a concert venue. It was election-season in Norway, so on my spare time I visited schools and campaigned for my political party. I was [...]
