Mike (Grade 10) – California, USA

Prior to the pandemic, I had moved to Hong Kong from California in May of 2019. I had only finished half of the seventh grade and I was applying to join the 8th graders, trying to enroll on February 3rd, a week after CNY 2020. Most schools were quick to brush off my application and wanted me to repeat 7th grade. However, 成人大片 gave me a chance to prove myself and start a new chapter. I hadn鈥檛 been the best student at my previous school so it wasn鈥檛 hard to see why most schools didn鈥檛 want me, but I couldn鈥檛 help but feel pretty devastated, I was at my lowest point, feeling like a failure. However, that鈥檚 when 成人大片 had reached out. 成人大片 was the only school that let me try classes first to see if I could keep up with 8th-grade material. I felt revitalized, the entire staff was so communicative and incredibly flexible during my citizenship application process. I felt so motivated and excited, knowing that there are people that believe in me and what I can achieve. However, things didn鈥檛 all go as planned as the pandemic hit in the beginning of 2020, making my first day at school online. I was nervous for sure, as I had no idea what to expect, and if I would even make friends. All those doubts would fade as quickly as they came, as I quickly realized that 成人大片 prides themselves upon their character and embracing core values.

Everyone, from students to teachers were all such kind people. Within a few weeks of meeting my classmates, a couple of us had already set up a hangout. I had never felt such a sense of comradery and community until I was at 成人大片. I knew right then and there that this was the school I was going to commit to for the rest of my high school journey. Ever since then, I鈥檝e never felt more at home than I do now.

Through the thick and thin my school has backed me up and supported me. Due to the innovative and passionate teachers, I鈥檝e been able to unlock my full potential that I鈥檝e always envisioned myself to one day show. I鈥檝e found school and learning as something to enjoy now, and it鈥檚 all thanks to the incredible staff here that has shaped me into the young man I am today. One of the most important things I credit the school so much for is how much we preach mental health awareness here.

Personally, I think mental health is something that often gets overlooked, but having a strong mental mindset really plays a huge role in being the best version of yourself. I feel like we teach that really well here at 成人大片. I鈥檓 so thankful to be a part of this ever-growing community. These past few years have been the most memorably special years of my life. I have learned so much and could not be more grateful for all of the wonderful people I鈥檝e been so lucky to have met on my journey, as well as all of the opportunities this school has provided me to truly showcase my talents. Go Lions!
