Since my childhood, I have been enjoying various sports. I have had passion for sprinting starting in my high school life. I have been a quick learner, and to be honest, my communication and social skills made it even easier for me to reach my full potential. It is a pity I could not continue in sports, due to increased requirements in academia, I had to focus on studies. Nevertheless, that did not stop my love for sports. I continue to learn through online means, constantly practice whenever I see a track, or even when I go out for a jog.
In life, I have learnt to love anything that I give my time to, whether it be something of my interest or something completely new to me. I have always admired my ability to work hard, and to teach students who might have rough backgrounds, students who have ambition to learn further, or even those who have a slow momentum in learning. My attempts have always been appreciated, and I increasingly upscale my efforts when it comes to work, responsibilities, aspirations, and family life.
Another field that is of my interest, particularly on the aesthetic/arts side, is acting. I have participated in Improv Festivals (using improvisational skills to carry on acts). One in particular that I remember was held in Wah Yan College Kowloon. Mingling with kids half my age and tutors not a day older than me, I realized that I could get along with children and even the mentors fairly well.
In future, I would love to continue my passion for both sports and acting, whether it be as a form of hobby.
Being the eldest in my family, I took the challenge to lend a helping hand to my younger siblings with their school assignments at a very young age. To be entirely honest, I never took it as 'extra work' or 'burden', rather, I took the opportunity to polish my own concepts and teaching methods. It just occurred to me that I was learning more.
I had the opportunity to be a student mentor, or a tutor, at my high school for over a year. The students were junior form incoming and needed help completing their assignments or studying for their tests. It reminded me of my young ages and how I did not have the privilege to study with a tutor, which gave me a motivation and purpose to teach the students with complete intensity.
