dart scholar Anja van Genderen

Anja van Genderen

2015 High School Scholar
2018 William A. Dart Memorial
University Scholar

University of Edinburgh, Biological Science

Anja graduated high school as the top student in her class at Cayman Prep and High School, and has maintained her standard of achievement through her first year of A levels earning A's in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

When not in the classroom, Anja is also an involved member of the school community — participating in the Model United Nations, serving as a prefect and tutoring younger students as part of the school's Learning Buddies programme.

When she closes her books, Anja is passionate about horses: riding and competing in dressage events with her horse Joey, or indulging her artistic side and drawing them. She most recently placed first in her level at the 2018 Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation National Dressage Show.

This past summer, Anja visited Europe to tour prospective universities, and then extended her trip to join other Dart Scholars at Oxford University. She participated in the Young Doctors’ programme where she got hands-on experience in medical practices.

Anja recently received the prestigious "Proud of Them" award for her exemplary academic achievements from the Cayman Islands Government.
