Hi! My name is Sandra and I graduated from IBSB in 2008.
For me, the most important aspect of my IBSB experience was the freedom to study what really interested me. In my case, I had an unusual choice of A-levels – Maths, Chemistry and Art & Design. The flexibility of IBSB, as well as the teachers’ eagerness to help, offered me the chance to divide my time exactly as needed.
What I did at University
After IBSB, I moved to London to continue my studies in art and design. I did a one-year Foundation in Art & Design, then a BA in Graphic Design, and finally a MA in Art & Science, all at University of the Arts London.
During my university years, I often freelanced as a translator and coordinator for Japanese TV companies. I got to work at the London and Rio Olympic Games as well as the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, amongst others.
My activities today
I have currently moved back to Bucharest and have set up a small production company for coordinating Japanese TV and film shoots. My work is quite seasonal, so in my spare time, I make ceramic objects which, hopefully, you’ll be able to find around Bucharest soon.
