Humans of HKIS: Ahona Dutta
“People are too focused on prestige, academics, whatever’s the best college, the best job, the highest paying job. I think you should focus on what makes you happy and what you want to do in the future.
Everyone at this school is like, you know, get into the best colleges. Because of that, I was focusing mostly on prestige, but now, my mindset’s changed a lot. Now that I’m just thinking about what’s gonna make me happy in the future.
Academics is a part of it, but it’s not like a huge deal. What makes me happy is having a good balance between school life and social life. So I’m right now trying to focus on spending more time with my family and my friends on the weekends as well as studying.” Ahona Dutta @ahonadutta__, Class of 2020
