39. Cecilie Nilsen (LGB 1981)

Posted By Alumni Office, mardi 7 octobre 2014
Cecilie Nilsen1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
I spent four years at LGB, from August 1974 to June 1978.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My dad was posted to Geneva as district manager for SAS. My parents chose Ecolint because they found the Swiss school system too rigid.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Many teachers had an impact but Mrs. Knight stood out in that she helped me develop my writing skills.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
I loved to be on the green where I believe the Centre des arts is today. I’d always bump into friends there and I remember to this day the smell of fresh grass.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
I loved the Vieille Ville because of the atmosphere and also Le Bord du Lac for its beautiful scenery.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
After five years in Japan we moved back to Oslo in August. We are still in the unpacking process but hope to see the end of it very soon. When we do I will start looking for a job.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Educating global citizens who, due to their Ecolint background, can make a difference in the world.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Do not try to be someone you’re not. Stay true to yourself.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
The years at Ecolint formed my identity and shaped me as a human being. I learned to tolerate and respect people regardless of background and skin colour. This in turn made me open-minded, which has always been useful in my approach to and interaction with other people.
