(Mariam Lotfy)

Mariam Panosetti1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
12 years, second to thirteenth grade. (1977-1979  at Pregny and 1980-1989 at La Châtaigneraie.)

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My parents arrived in Geneva as international civil servants working with the UN.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
All the teachers had a great impact on me – especially the primary teaching staff at Pregny and particularly Mr. Miners. He was only there for a year and did not teach my class but he managed to gather all the kids and involve them in creating an outstanding play and musical production. The play was based on a short story one of the 6th graders had written. Children were involved in creating costumes and composing music as well as performing. He was able to bring out creativity in each child in the whole primary school.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
At Pregny it was the 4 square game in the playgroud. At La Chât, the boarding house in the last years, which was all the way at the top of the old building.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
The Motel de Founex and Founex Tennis Club where I often hung out with friends outside of school.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I live in Eysins and my son currently attends La Chât. I work on a freelance basis as a HR Consultant and Career Development Counsellor.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
To continue to maintain the quality of education and strong sense of values in its community, and further integration within the Swiss community.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Continue to learn, develop and be the best you can be and try to spread the values you take with you to other people whose lives you touch.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
It taught me to enjoy learning, to become more self aware as an individual within a complex world. Also to constantly challenge the status quo and look beyond what is given to try to come up with new solutions.
