Vorfreude (n.) - The joyful, intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures

Hey loves!

This week has been packed with tests, deadlines, and meetings. But there was something very exciting in the making this week as well and I cannot wait for it to happen! This year, I am leading the Model United Nations (MUN) team of my school and my co-leader and I decided to organise an in-house conference for our team. An in-house conference is an informal conference that can be competitive but does not have...

This morning, I packed my backpack and left campus with everyone else from my residence. After a one hour bus drive, we arrived at one of the entrances to the dragon's back hiking trail. We hiked more than 2 hours on the route and then arrived at a beach where we enjoyed the afternoon. 

This was our first CoP (Change of Pace) Day of the year and I am grateful that we got to spend it like this. There is something incredibly relaxing to simply packing your bags, leaving all your tasks and deadlines at...

Hong Kong welcomed me with two typhoons last week but I am still excited to be back! This weekend, my beautiful first years from Germany will arrive at LPC and I cannot wait to meet them in person. Their arrival at LPC made me think of my application to UWC and whether I would make the decision to apply again. The answer is yes. I would do it again and again. It was one of the best decisions of my life to apply to UWC. 

If you are reading this and you are thinking about whether to apply or not, here'...

Hey loves!

When you are reading this, I will be sitting on my plane back to Hong Kong. I am writing these lines while sitting at the airport in San Francisco and it is hard to believe that it has already been eight weeks since I arrived here. I said goodbye to my lovely roommate this morning at 4am before she headed to the airport. After hugging all my other friends at Stanford, I left the campus around noon.

I want to use this article to talk about saying goodbye to friends and family. Many of my future first...

Hey loves!

It's my final week at Stanford! To be honest, it does not feel like more than seven weeks have already passed. Time has passed incredibly fast and I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to attend this program. It has been a great summer and despite studying, it was a lot of fun. I have met so many amazing people and I will miss them when I'm leaving Stanford. 

This week is not only our last week at Stanford but also the week of our final exams. I will take my final exam in my introduc...

Hey loves!

I cannot believe that I have already spent more than six weeks at Stanford! Time is flying by and it is so sad that I will have to leave this place in one and a half weeks. I love living on this incredibly beautiful campus with all these amazing people and I will miss them all. 

Although I do not really want to leave, I am also excited about going back to Hong Kong and meeting my first years. I have already skyped with my two German first years, but I have not met them in person. I am also curious ab...

 Hey loves!

The past days changed my entire life... literally! I still can't believe that I moved to Hong Kong, to be more precise to the Li Po Chun United World College (LPCUWC) of Hong Kong. When dreaming of something, we tend to tell ourselves that it is impossible anyway. But things aren't always out of reach - you just need to try. I remember being extremely scared of trying to reach my dream of going to LPC. I remember debating with myself about applying at UWC or not. I told myself that it wouldn't work...
