The New Era of IBforMe

Hey everyone, this is from your new IBforMe team; Terrence, Emefa, Ewuraba, Darren, Jason and Farida. And if you’re reading this, I just want to thank you so much for joining us on our new journey.

We all just recently finished our first year in IBDP, and it was eventful, to say the least, filled with countless of sleepless nights but a lot of fun along the way when we took time off our studies and engaged in other school activities.

Just a quick overview of our plans for the summer, over the next few months, we plan to update the IBforMe website with much more recent useful resources across all the programs, make the website a more engaging and interactive platform, and finally update the already established peer-tutoring service.

But before we start, here’s a quick introduction from all of our members.

Hello everyone, my name is Terrence Adegbesan. I love swimming, football, exercising, and playing checkers. My favourite subjects are Mathematics and Psychology. So far, my time in the IB has been enjoyable, there have been moments of ups and downs, but overall it’s been smooth (I say this as I’m about to begin summer with 4 IAs and my Extended Essay to complete😔). My best advice for IB students is not to lose steam and fall into procrastination. Whenever you feel overwhelmed by the workload, calm down and plan out how best you can complete it all.

Hello everyone, my name is Arlene Emefa Agbotui. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and my favourite IB subject is chemistry. So far, my time studying in the IB DP program has been a real journey, with many ups and downs, but I’ve tried to demonstrate resilience. My recommendation to IB students is to take a breather every now and again. The IB, particularly the diploma program, can be overwhelming and overly challenging at times, so try to find methods to relax but don’t overdo it. Also, plan ahead!!!

Hi guys, my name is Ewuraba Benyarko. I guess there’s not really much to say. I love to read and volunteer at veterinarian centers in my spare time. Honestly, the IBDP program can be stressful at times but just remember its a 100% doable. It just takes the right amount of determination and consistency to achieve excellent results. In addition, your learning journey should solely be based on personal growth. What others achieve has nothing to do with your academic progress. So hang in there!

Hey guys, My name is Darren Owusu Ansah. I love to watch movies and catch up on many series, but of course, learning comes first. My favourite subject in the IBDP is Biology HL. My experience with the program, although it has been daunting, it is possible to attain that 45 points. With hard work, dedication and effective time management strategies, you will be flying high in the colors of the IB. You've got this!!

Hello guys, My name is Jason Van-Tay. Because of how tiring the IB programme is, my favourite thing to do with my free time is sleep. My favourite IB subject is ITGS. What really makes the IB journey stressful is the extra coursework like IAs, EE and TOK, but if you're able to get these things out of the way early and get enough time to focus on studying, you shouldn't have a problem.

Hello guys, my name is Farida Saani. I have tons of hobbies, but my most desired hobby is shopping! The advice I will give to you guys is, do not waste time at all! If there is anything that needs to be done, do it! But also, do not put too much weight on yourself. I know the IBDP programme is rigorous, but everything is possible if you put your mind to it. This journey may have its pros and cons, but just know it's all worth it at the end of the day.

Study hard but also have fun this break! - Terrence
