Meet a former student

Meet Juan Bautista

I come from Argentina. My favourite sport is football. I have been playing it since i have memory knowledge. I chose to spend time on a high school cause its a very popular and common thing to do in Denmark. I chose Denmark for one special reason, i have danish nationality, so i wanted to learn and know more about the country and culture. I came to GIV, because my mother came to this same place when she was around 17 with her sister, so i knew this was a place where i was going to have a nice experience.

I love sports and GIV offers a hole variety of them. The only thing I was hoping it was better was football training, but maybe that feeling relies on the fact that i’m always expecting a high level on training and match development. If I had to choose only one thing to say it was the best, it would be the relations and friends that I’m taking with me after this experience finishes. But also I have to say that alle the facilities we have are incredible and are in great conditions. GIV has been very kind and care a lot for us, international students.

Meet Sofia Echeverria

My name is Sofia. I come from Uruguay. Before coming to GIV i went to the university. I love all balls sports, so i do not have a favourite sport. I stopped my studies in july and after that i decided to came to GIV and have a good time and do a lot of sports and decide about my future.

My choice about GIV, had nothing to do with Denmark. I chose Denmark because it was there GIV was. I have chosen GIV because it was highly recommended for an ex-student from here. My stay lived completely up to my expectations.

The best thing about my stay at GIV is the friends that i made. I would recommend this school to others.

Meet Nicholas Mburu

My name is Nicholas and i come from Kenya. Before i came to GIV, I was in another high school for 16-19 years old. I love all sports but athletics edges over the other. I chose to spend time in a high school because it allows you to find your true interests, maximise your social and physical potential. One of my very good friends came to Denmark before me. She is the one who told me how amazing high school was. So i decided to try it out for myself. After i went to the past high school, i needed somewhere i could do a lot of sport but also have fun and be social. My stay here fullfilled more than my expectations, i met new lifetime friends and also did a great amount of sports.

My highlight of GIV was the people. As being the youngest in the school, everyone treated me like the others and i was not left out of anything. I would indeed recommed high schools especially if you need sometime just to get out of everything and have fun while learning something. GIV is just fantastic and it would be my first recommendation to others. It was some of the best months of my live!
