Belmont Hill has the fortunate opportunity to welcome Koame Kota to Form IV through the school’s student exchange program. Koame joins us from Bishops School in Capetown, South Africa, where he is a student, athlete, and musician. For his first weeks in Massachusetts he lived with Sam Davis ’24 and Lucien Davis ’26; over Halloween weekend he moved to live with Alex Behn ’24 prior and will return to South Africa prior to Winter break. An excellent musician, Koame plays a wide range of instruments such as piano, clarinet, the djembe drums, ukulele, and marimba. Koame also has a passion for singing; he has joined the B Flats and has already made a significant impact. His musical passion started at the age of 4 when he learned how to play the piano. Aside from his musical talents, Koame is also a talented soccer player and had a great season with the JVA team. When Koame is not in the music building or on the soccer field, he can be found in a wide range of classes. He is taking both AP European history and US history. He hopes to learn more about American history while he is here. Koame has many aspirations during his time in America, “I am hoping to just have fun… because that is what it is mainly about, I hope to learn a lot more, but the most important thing is to just make friends”. Overall, Koame is an extremely outgoing person and wants to make the best out of his time in America. When asked for a final comment, Koame responded, “My goal is to meet as many people as possible, so please just come up to me and introduce yourself. I would love to meet you.” Welcome to the community Koame!
