Susanna Smit1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
About four years.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?

My father was working a the South African Mission to the United Nations.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Not one in particular; more a combined impact because they were so very different from each other.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
Not strictly speaking on the campus, but it might as well have been given the amount of time students spent there: The Auberge, because of the way it looked and the atmosphere.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
The Vieille Ville, because of the way it looked and the atmosphere.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.

I teach art at a high school in Johannesburg and am involved with art things; also a practicing Christian.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Become more aware of what it does to children to growing up in multiple cultures: read, for example, ‘Third Culture Kids’ by Pollock and Van Reken.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Become more aware of what it does to you growing up in different places, that forging your identity will probably present some complex challenges.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Making me able to adapt more effectively to an ever more multicultural world.
