Michael Gavilánez's post on Goodwall - Got the I.B. Diploma The end of two magnificent, and strenuous years. At the time, my mind made things harder. It was imminent. It had started before the ib. But this was an opportunity I wanted to take. I wish I had been fully disposed to the amount of work it required, it would have made it a great experience. Instead, I learned a lot about myself, the people around me, and how much I can give even at my lowest.
