    "In university, I didn't feel inspired to reach my potential. Along with the pressure of finding internships, I craved the freedom to explore and discover my passions. That's why I started iX. I dreamed of creating a school that prepares students for the global future, pushes them to explore, and inspires them to venture out of their comfort zones. It's the experience I wish I'd had in university."
