Aloha! I’m Katie and you may know me for my IB video series on my YouTube channel. I didn’t know how popular the IB was until my results reaction video blew up and I received thousands of messages from students asking for help worldwide. I started realizing how desperate IB students were for resources, and concurrently, the major lack of support for it. I felt it was time to create this ourselves. So two years after receiving my IB diploma, I came back to make this website with Imogen. I hope that for you, it will be the encouraging student community I always wish I had.💛

🇬🇧 IB in the UK (45), University of Oxford

Hi! I study History at University College, Oxford, and live in London. I realised students could benefit from more support and the guidance of graduates when tutoring IB. My students’ experiences are diverse, and they are often overwhelmed by the demands of the IB. Inequality in IB provision has been compounded by the impact of the pandemic. I really hope we can help demystify the IB, build confidence, and create a positive community, so more students are able to have the positive IB experience I was lucky enough to have.

Hi there! My name is Wangari and I grew up in South Africa but my family is originally from Kenya. I am a second-year student studying Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. I finished the IB in November 2020 at a first generation IB school. IB is a journey best experienced with support from others and I am grateful to be part of a community whose mission is to do that. I first joined IBlieve in January 2021 as a tutor and writer but currently I work on the Exec team, coordinating our teams, recruitment and other logistics.

Hello! I’m Maitha, and I study Chemical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. Seeing students benefit from our events, blog, tutoring, and other resources reminds me of how incredible it is to be part of a dedicated and friendly team. We always work hard to provide our best resources to the IBlieve community, but also strive to create a supporting and welcoming environment for each other. I believe in you, and so does the IBlieve community <3
