Hey loves!

Many of you have written to me about concerns regarding your essays for your UWC application when I asked for questions for my Q&A and I therefore decided to put my best advice in one of my articles. The most important ingredient for an outstanding essay is honesty. They want to read about a real student with real flaws and strengths and not some perfect illusion of you. Do not waste time asking yourself if who you are will be enough to get in - you will not get the answer without applying!

If you ar...

Hey loves! 

After graduating from LPC, I thought a lot about the beginning of my UWC journey. About how I first met all these amazing people I know have the privilege to call my friends. About my first time entering the room. And eating Dim Sum. And riding the MTR. There is so much to remember from this journey and I look back at most of my memories with a smile. While looking back, I realised that there is a list of things I wish I had known before attending LPCUWC. I put together a little video for you guys...

Last Friday, the IBO released our grades and I decided to film my reaction to my results. Spoiler alert: If you would like to see my reaction before knowing my results, hit the play button of the video now and come back later!

Overall, I am quite satisfied with my results since I got a 42 out of 45. I worked very hard for achieving this result and I was glad to see that my hard work had paid off. The only thing that made me a little bit sad was that I did not get the grade I wanted in Global Politics...

I have often asked myself what the one factor was that made UWC Germany decide to give me a spot at an United World College. I know that many of you guys are trying to figure out what will get you into UWC and so I went back to my application material and determined the five things that I think got me into UWC. I do, however, think that this does not mean that you need to check those five boxes and the your spot is secure. I think that there might be boxes I don't even know of. Applicants to UWC do...

My peers and I have two weeks of exams left! I wrote my mathematics exam this week and I will write my other five exams in the next two weeks. It is sort of nerve-wracking to think about it but I am also excited to put everything I learned in the past two years to use. 

I am incredibly grateful for all the support I received my friends and family over the past weeks while I was preparing for my exams. One person who was especially supportive for me is celebrating her birthday today - my aunt! She hel...

Last week, one of LPC's cultural groups organised a cultural evening for the whole school. The Caribbean and Latin-American Cultural Evening (CLACE) took place on Saturday evening and it was an incredible experience. They started the event in our canteen with self-made food for the whole school. We then moved to the assembly hall and watched their well-planned performance. The cultural group managed to combine both the beautiful sides of their countries with reports about issues in their countries....

Since I uploaded my dorm room tour to Youtube a few months ago, many of you reached out to me with your questions about the application process. I received many questions regarding the interview that applicants are offered when applying to UWC and so I decided to make a list of my tips in another video. I hope that this helps some of you when preparing for your interview!

Here are the tips I gave in the video:

1. Be on time

I guess that this should be a given but I know of quite a few people who failed...

Hey loves!

Surprisingly, I had an almost totally free day today. LPC c hanged its schedule system this year and thanks to this change and my teachers, I had only class today (my morning block). So I went to class at 8.30am and was free after 9.30am. Since I do not have any extracurricular commitments on Wednesdays, I was free to leave our campus and explore the parts of Hong Kong that I have not seen yet. Being in second year and applying to universities made me increasingly aware of the fact that I have less...

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...

 Hey loves!

Apologies for not updating my blog for a while! The past days have been incredibly busy because deadline after deadline is coming for secondyears. I have already started writing my university applications and my first application is due on September 25. It's hard to believe that one year ago, I was walking around Hong Kong for the first time in my life and now I am already writing my applications to universities around the globe. 

My top tip for applying to universities is to start as early as possi...
