I am a junior student from National Taiwan University. I am an approachable and open-minded person who is capable of independent thinking. I want to take part in Garena's MIP because I would like to explore my full potential.
I was born in a family of four, with an elder sister 7 years older than me. My parents used to call me “Silly”. Because even when I fall or face challenges, I always bare a bright smile on my face, and think of the bright sides of the problem. I am an optimistic person, because I believe there is always a solution. When I am in a fight with someone, I always put myself in other people’s shoes. I might sound a bit naïve, but I am proud of the name “Silly”.
I lived a life like any other ordinary child until my family moved to Shanghai when I was 12. It was then when I went through different educational systems. I went to kindergarten in the U.S.A, elementary school in Taiwan, and three different junior high schools. I came back to Taiwan to take the Basic Competence Test for Junior High School Students. Thus, I am able to adapted and blend into new environments really fast. Because of the places and schools I have gone to, I have broaden my horizon. I no longer put myself on the scale of Taiwan, yet on the scale of the world.
I also love meeting up new people. Observing what other people would do or think differently is really inspiring. I represented our school as an exchange student to Singapore when I was in senior high school. Of which I got a chance to experience the difference of their educational system and culture, and of course, I have made many friends that I still keep in touch with. I am also a great team player. I went to the Global Initiative Symposium in summer, 2014. We had different workshops and seminars discussing the trend of the world and working in groups to brainstorm great ideas. I am now a member of NTU student ambassador. We help the school with hosting international visitors and guests. It provides us the chance to know principals or prestigious scholars from over the world. Other than that, I get to practice my comprehension skills and how to impress people within a short period of time.
I want to discover my full potential. I am willing to try out anything and everything. My parents used to tell me, “The attitude decide one’s altitude. You got to aim high.” I may not be the smartest, but I am definitely the one who is the most active and earnest!
