Fire ripped through the Neilson St building on the night of February 21. Fire safety investi- gator Russell Dickson says electrical inspectors found the cause. It was an electrical event that started in a wall. Business owner Salem Almurhaj has been left $300,000 out of pocket because the building was not insured. Perfect score: Taehwan Shin hopes to become a biomedical engineer after he got a perfect score in his International Baccalaureate Diploma at Auckland International College. Photo: KELSEY FLETCHER Top score for student By KELSEY FLETCHER Getting a perfect score in his International Bacca- laureate Diploma was no easy feat for Auckland International College graduate Taehwan Shin. The 18-year-old Mt Eden resident graduated from the central Auck- land school last year after attending their exclusive diploma pro- gramme. I originally went to Auckland Grammar School but after reading about AIC in the Korean newspaper and liking their small classes I moved there for my senior years, Mr Shin says. Under the two-year diploma programme he had to take six subjects with three at an upper level, but as a high achiever Mr Shin took four subjects at an upper level. He also had to write a 4000 word thesis, under- take a theory of know- ledge course and initiate a 150 hour creativity, action, service pro- gramme alongside his studies. For my creativity, action, service pro- gramme I started the school robotics club which I still look after and run now as a gradu- ate alumni student, Mr Shin says. He also enjoys playing golf, is a taekwondo sec- ond dan blackbelt and in his spare time at school he was the chairman of the Local and Global Action Club which was responsible for service fundraising. And now he has received the rare perfect score he has been apply- ing to prestigious Amer- ican universities like Harvard and Yale to enter their biomedical engineering programmes. I was offered a schol- arship to Auckland Uni- versity to study bio- medical engineering too so I will see what hap- pens, Mr Shin says. Executive principal Carolyn Solomon says with only one in 500 students globally getting a perfect score, having Mr Shin and two other college boarding students reach the mile- stone is quite an achieve- ment. He is a future global leader who will bring credit to New Zealand one day on the inter- national stage through his combination of aca- demic brilliance and commitment to human- ity. Mr Shin says the possibilities and the challenge of biomedical engineering interest him the most. I think biomedical engineering is an inter- esting future for me because it is the fastest growing field and they have to use several dif- ferent areas of know- ledge like chemistry, physics and engineer- ing, he says. My motivation to work is to engineer bet- ter medicine and reverse engineer the brain so I can understand neurode- generative diseases like Parkinson s. I chose to become a biomedical engineer over a doctor because I would be limited in the amount of people I could help if I became a doctor whereas with biomed, even after I m gone I can continue to help others.
