What is your DREAM?
I want to become a professional basketball player, it is something that I enjoy and will always love to do, even I am very bad at it. If I get the chance to go to the NBA, I am not going to let that opportunity to flow away, and after retire, I want to use what I learned in university to help me get a job.
Who are the GIANTS in your life
My parents for starters, they are the reason why I am in this world, and they care about me really much. Though there are times when I get angry and say hurtful things to them, but I love my parents very much and they always encourage me to go after what I want. Others include my friends, Tracy, Jeff, David, Sam, there push me forward and make me work harder, and they are the reason why I love to play basketball, and they have though me alot. And of course, my teachers, Mister Ward, Mister Andy, Mister Manno. Though there are times that they are evil and give us lots of homework to do, but they do this for our own good and encourages us to work on our own, to work independently. Mr Eaton, my school principle, always talk to me so calmly that I felt a shiver up my spine sometimes, but I don't feel that anymore, because I know he is my friend, I know he is there to not just teach me, but help me and make me a better person.
Are you afraid of failure? How will you prepare yourself mentally to overcome the challenges in your life?
Actually I am. I always pass the ball during a basketball match because I fear that I might get blocked or miss the shot and get critisized by my teammates. But I think I can overcome that fear by trying harder, by getting more confident. I need to have faith in myself before I can get faith from others, or else I will never success.
How can you lead by example at SUIS?
I think by working harder, being more cooperative, trying harder and participate in activities more. I can only be an example at SUIS if I show my action in trying harder and becoming better.
What kinds of healthy life habits can you develop now (today) and start practicing?
Doing exercise, more than 2 hours per day, so I can have a stronger and healthier body. Being happy all the time, to be optimistic and see the bright side in things before you see something completely as something bad. Try my best and never give up!
Remember to give back to SUIS, Mentors, Family, and Friends!
Of course!!! I love you guys!! Thank you for supporting me!
