"I believe that a fully functional society and the world is possible through the efforts of individuals who are responsible, sensitive, fair, persevering, and inclusive who have a modern vision and values. The operations of our schools, which have been home to thousands of students and graduates over the last 150 years, will need to follow a sustainable model in order to continue cultivating these traits for the centuries to come. The goal of our foundation is to ensure the sustainability of our schools. Bringing my experience in education, professional life, and in society, it is my personal priority to contribute to the institutionalization, empowerment, and promotion of the Foundation in the most effective way, and to support its collaboration with the schools, graduates, and associations within an ideal governance structure.
