Arne Rosa Class of 1974
April 24, 2007
Just wanted to furnish a little background since leaving AIS-New Delhi and graduating from the International School in Manila, Philippines in 1974. I first attended a small Quaker college in North Carolina named Guilford College. I broke away for six months to attempt attending the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, but the civil war in 1976 put an end to that aspiration. I graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in Heath Education, School of Public Health.
I lived in Washington,D.C. for the next few years before being fortunate enough to embark on a globe-circling adventure through the South Pacific, S.E. Asia and visiting Manila again. Finally, I moved to Santa Barbara, California, in the early 1980s and finally found roots and have been in this beautiful town ever since.
I work as a Physical Therapist Assistant at the local hospital. I have never been married but have a 12-year relationship with a great girlfriend named Katy. I still compete in the occasional triathlon or local running events. I look forward to getting in touch with AIS-New Delhi and IS-Philippines alumni!
