Phoenix heads to New York

Congratulations to Class of 2019 IGS graduate Phoenix (Fifi) Levy Bell who has secured a place at prestigious New York University (NYU)

Fifi was thrilled to receive an offer before completing her HSC, and to secure it with her ATAR of 95.25.

“I am so excited,” said Fifi, who is earning and saving as much money as possible.

“I will move into a residents’ hall around Washington Square in August at their Manhattan Campus.

“I’ve been admitted into their College of Arts and Sciences.”

While she has yet to select her subjects, she hopes to continue her study of Spanish, which she started in Year 11 at IGS, and to spend at least one semester at the the NYU Berlin Campus, having studied German at IGS from the age of three.

NYU accepted Fifi on the basis of two essays and her HSC results.

“I’ve loved IGS. It was like a family for me. It was a community that embraced me and I wrote about that in my application.

“New York is my favourite city in the world, so full of energy and life. I know I am never going to be bored.”
