On the 15th of November, 2019, me and my brother held a musical concert with all our friends. We called it ' A Musical Promise'. If you have been following this website, you will know that we are supporting the non profit organization Pencils of Promise to help build schools in many underprivileged countries.
From very young performers, to my fellow classmates in Grade 6, the evening had a wide range of ages as well as instruments (from piano to violin to harp to a full classical band), but all the performers still used their courage to step up on the stage and to perform.
I'm glad to say that the evening was a success! All the performers were outstanding, and it really was amazing to see all the talent and quality music at display. A big thanks to all the performers and parents who donated to make this evening a success; We wouldn't have gone this far without you!
In early October, I entered an essay writing competition on the world kids travel guide website. The theme was 'the gift of languages', and I wrote about my experience and journey in learning the Chinese language. A month and a bit later, I received an email from the company. Guess what? I came first place and won the competition!
