Our mission is to give all ISB students a place to showcase their creativity and artistic skills, as well as encourage them to try new things and step out of their comfort zone. We want to bring all members of the ISB community even closer together, and create a collective outcome that encompasses all of the great things that this school is capable of. Moreover, we want to enable our readers to become more well-informed on global issues, and entertain them with our light-hearted articles and recommendations. Lastly, we want to create a relaxed space where students can be themselves without the stress of academics, or any external expectations, and purely be themselves creatively.
Meet The Team
Writer and Editor in Chief
“The Nest” is probably my proudest achievement in my 13 years at ISB thus far. I founded this project as an outlet where students can express themselves and experiment with new forms of media, free from academic pressures. Moreover, I have a passion for writing, which further motivated this project. My favourite types of articles to write are recipes and interviews, and my hobbies include reading, baking, exercise and art.
Writer and Creative Director
I am a year 13 student that loves to write about anything that I am interested in at that point in time. I joined The Nest as a way to express myself and as a way to build a community from scratch; creating special interactions between students, teachers and parents. In my spare time I like to go to the gym, play chess and read terribly sad classics.
I am a year 13 student and I am one of the original members of The Nest. I’ve alway been passionate about writing and getting my ideas out there while also spreading the word about different topics. Viewing the world through the lense of a camera always gives a different perspective and shifts reality, giving it new layers worth exploring. I love writing articles about scientific topics, from viruses to the newest cure for cancer. On top of that books are my speciality so you can be sure to expect a lot of varying book recommendations and which ones are worth reading and why.
HI, I’m Filip. I’ve been in the team ever since the Nest was created all the way back in 2019, before the Covid hysteria. It’s pretty hard to imagine how life was before this, but that’s what I’m here for. You’ll see my name on some cool articles regarding this topic and many others, like cryptocurrency opinion pieces (massive red pills!). I believe in quality over quantity, so when you read something I wrote, you know it’ll be damn good. So buckle up and prepare for a dose of reality!
I am a year 13 student, and this is my second year helping as the web developer for The Nest website. I always enjoyed working on websites and I'm very happy to have the opportunity to help in this project. I believe this project will have a very positive impact on our school community. I enjoy drawing and painting, and I also enjoy cooking.
I’m a year 11 student, and my main goal having joined The Nest is to help ISB students through comforting writing, be it fiction or nonfiction. Comedy is a big passion of mine. Do at least half of my jokes land? You better believe they don’t. Will I still do my utmost trying to be funny? Yes. I’m also a connoisseur of subpar media, and trying to draw conclusions as to what makes it rubbish. Lastly, I listen to a wide range of musical genres. Although discussing music is a landmine, I believe that I could persuade any of you into enjoying a band you’d never have listened to before. Writing is a prime hobby of mine, and I’m happy that The Nest has given me the opportunity to share my work with all of you.
Hello! I’m Liza, a student in 10B. I started writing stories as soon as I could spell, and over the years my passion for story-telling has developed into a life-goal. I’m a very passionate person, so you’ll see me screaming about the things I enjoy all the time (like anime, manga, or good footnotes). If someone’s being loud, it’s probably me… This year, I told myself I’d be more outgoing and take more risks, which is why I ended up joining The Nest! I hope I can be a good addition to the already super talented team, and also wish to entertain the readers with my (hopefully good) stories!
Hi, my name is Yasmin and I am a year 11 student at ISB. I decided to join The Nest because I think it’s a great platform that we - the ISB community - can use in order to raise awareness and share our opinions on different matters regarding the world's latest updates, school and personal passions.

Hello, my name is Ana Stefan, I am a student in year 11. I recently decided to join The Nest due to the fact that I think it is a great opportunity to express our ideas and opinions on different platforms like websites,podcasts and newspapers.

I enjoy extracurricular activities that give you the freedom to do something productive and creative therefore I am excited to be part of this group!
Hi! I’m Ana, a year 13 student who joined the Nest this year. Writing is my favourite form of self-expression so I decided to become part of the Nest to improve this skill while also contributing something meaningful to the school community. Other than that I’m passionate about all Romance and Asian languages (hangul is hands-down the best writing system) and making things look pretty.
