IMSP PODCAST: MEET ALUMNA Laura van Steeg
“At IMSP, we were always taught how to speak to people, to be mindful, to listen to one another, and that really helped when it came to making new friends. Once you have friends, everything else is simple. Everything else, you can figure out.
A warm welcome to this week’s guest on the IMSP alumni podcast, Laura van Steeg. Spending her early years immersed in Montessori education, Laura went on to study at a secondary school that shares this same educational framework. Speaking with our host Mariana, Laura reveals how her time at IMSP helped ease her transition into a new community. Drawing on her Grace and Courtesy lessons, Laura was ready to take on the world.
Laura in her own words:
Hello, my name is Laura van Steeg and I’m 17 years old. I started going to IMSP when I was in third grade and then I left after the fifth grade to go to Duhovka Gymnazium. I love acting in the theatre and I’ve been a part of the Montessori Model United Nations.
