Date of Graduation Ceremony : May 31, 2020

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Chairperson Mam and the school principal for giving me the permission to attend the virtual graduation ceremony of my batch mates. It has been two years since I left AGS Gurugram, but then the three years I spent there were some of the best school years of my life.

What touched me the most and that I would like to share is when the Chairperson, Dr. (Mrs.) Amita Chauhan Ma’am asked everyone to clap for me during the ceremony. At that moment I wanted to express my thanks but my microphone did not pick up. Today I want to say all that I wanted then through this letter.

Respected ma’am, I am really grateful that you let me participate in the graduation ceremony. I enjoyed seeing my former classmates graduate as if I was there. I was also extremely touched when you acknowledged my presence.

I want you to know that while I cherish many of my school years I will never forget Amity, and all the work that the school put in making me and my fellows open-minded and knowledge-thirsty students who are ready to face the real world once graduated. I also would like to send my sincere thanks to the teachers who supported me during the years of IG-1 and 2. I extend my special thanks to Mrs Vandana who was able to make me fall in love with chemistry to the extent that I applied at the faculty of chemistry at the universities of Turin and Milan. After getting a degree in analytical chemistry I plan to pursue a master's in forensic chemistry. Thereafter I plan to join the Italian Military as an officer in the Forensic Sciences Investigation department, in Italian known as RIS.

I wish all the best for AGS, its faculty teachers, students and staff.

I sincerely hope that if in recent years I’am able to come back to India, I'll be able to stop by AGS.

Umberto Filineri Grade IG-1 and 2
