Graduating Senior:Kaosi Di-ibor

Kaosi Di-ibor

Milford Mill Academy

Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?

I know that I am supposed to pick one teacher, but picking one would be unfair. In my opinion, picking just one teacher would not be an accurate response to the question. Among all the amazing teachers that have taught me through my years as a BCPS student at Milford Mill Academy, these three teachers have had the biggest impact on me. Mrs. Pam (AP Calculus AB and BC teacher), Mrs. Cohn (AP English Literature teacher), and Mrs. Mason (Academy of Health Professions teacher) share these common qualities: They all go the extra mile for their students, they would never make anyone feel inadequate for asking questions, and they are always willing to take the time to listen. Above all, they love their profession, and it presents itself through their interactions with other students in their classes, including me. I am grateful to have passed through their classrooms as I embark on a new chapter in my academic journey.

During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of? 

During my years as a BCPS student, I was proud to be the captain of the Its Academic team at Milford Mill Academy this school year. For the first time in the school’s history, we won the first round of the competition, and advanced to the playoff competition. From this experience, I learned valuable lessons about hard work, leadership, and commitment. 

What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans immediately after graduation?

In the fall, I plan to attend the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and earn a degree in biochemistry and molecular biology.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I see myself continuing my education in a medical scientist training program at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, in order to become a physician scientist with a concentration in hematology and oncology.  


“Kaosi… a student every teacher wants to clone. She has this overflowing love for learning. Her determination and work ethics are superb! As a student, I would consider her as one of the most extraordinary people that I have encountered. She is self-motivated, responsible, team player and most of all a silent achiever.  Her peers and other teachers speak highly of her because of how she values education and how she gives back to her community. She has been teacher-volunteer for small children in her church since she was in seventh grade.  It has been a pleasure to have her in my class for three consecutive years.”

Cecile Pamintuan, AP Calculus AB/BC teacher
