TAIPEI, TAIWAN

  When I first arrived at Delphian, I was terrified. I was a very shy kid who didn’t know how to interact with people. I remember my first day in the course room, I was sitting at a table, and I was so scared that I sat with my back straight and stiff. Throughout my years at Delphian, I became more comfortable around other people and even strangers. I was able to talk to them without wanting to run away or hide under a desk. I could even give a speech to the entire school. That was a big achievement for me.

  When I first came here, I studied without intention. I spent my time thinking mostly about myself and thinking how I was such a terrible person. I always thought that the Delphi Program was like a magic show, that when you are on a certain part of the program you just magically turn into this super ethical person. I realized that Delphian didn’t work like that pretty quickly once I got on Form 7. I was waiting for life to come to me instead of being causative over the situation. I didn’t like to work hard, and I would try to avoid things whenever I could. 

  I realized what the problem was during an assembly when Trevor talked about responsibility. I thought that I was a responsible person, but I realized that what I was doing was merely taking orders. I didn’t own my life, and I let myself be the effect of everything. This caused me to doubt myself, and I grew less and less confident. After that realization, I tried to take a more responsible viewpoint about myself and my life. I realized that it wasn’t up to my parents to decide what my life will be like. It is up to me to be successful and be responsible for my life.

  Now, I’m ready to take the next step of my journey. I’m excited for what the future holds!
