I’ve received the results of my Cambridge IGCSE results, and to my amazement, I got 7A*s, out of all the 7 subjects I’ve taken!

Also, just this October, I was informed that I was also awarded the Cambridge IGCSE Brilliance Award in Economics! This perfect score made me one of the top of my grade in 2008. Also, apart from studies, on this September the 5th, in the GS Fame Interschool speech competition, with the topic “My Best Entrepreneur”, out of the 275 participants and 67 schools—guess what? I won the first position—as champion!

After the programme, I felt myself with a higher self-esteem and now talking in front of the public was not a matter anymore. I know how to succeed not only in school, but also in my life. And now, I was able to achieve the 2nd rank for UN examination for my whole school, always in top 5 in my secondary  and get a school-based scholarship to Anglo Chinese School Independent (ACS) for 4 years.

The most inspiring thing is that we are WINNERS. I learn to unleash my potential and make me real winner in many competitions and academic wise. Because of this, I can get my scholarship in Global Prestasi School.

The latest achievement that I’ve achieved is that I scored the 2nd highest in the National Examination. My GPA was 38.3. I want to recommend all my friends so they can become successful.

My score was the highest in my school, Canisius, the 2nd highest among all private schools in Jakarta, and the 8th highest among all public and private schools in Jakarta, and I was the only one in my school who got the perfect score for science!

I’m really thankful to AKLTG and the I Am Gifted camp, that helped me to be who I am right now.

I scored straight A*s (80 and above) on all my exams and coursework for my 3rd term in school, topped my class and got second highest in the whole level of secondary 2 for 2 consecutive times!

It was an achievement that never even crossed my mind before the camp. I am able to overcome my fears and become more confident in myself. I found it easier to express myself, while respecting other’s feeling and model of the word at the same time.

” Before I Am Gifted!™ , I was unmotivated to study as I felt that it was boring. I had the mindset that studying would not help me at all. I also did not have a goal.

However, during I Am Gifted!™ , my coach shared with me the importance of setting a goal and how I can control my emotions to make the right choice. I also learnt useful study techniques like note-making, speed-reading and super memory.

I feel that this school holiday programme is different from many others I have attended previously as it does not just focus on study skills. It also shared with me the importance of appreciation, to love my parents and be thankful for what they have done for me.

The most memorable event in the programme was when I learnt that the most important person in my life is myself and that no matter what happens I will be here to help myself get back up on the right track. “

” I Am Gifted!™ was an eye-opening experience. It taught me the importance of oneself, true friends, and the key to communicating well with my loved ones.

The Learning Mastery skills helped me study subjects much more efficiently. I learnt to manage time between my studies, 2 CCAs and music classes (I was pursuing a diploma in music). I set a goal to be the top 25% in school, and despite failures, I learnt to persevere and learn from my mistakes.

At the end of Sec 3, I topped Biology and Chemistry and ranked among the top 30 — far surpassing my goal. I even won the Edusave Merit Bursary and Good Progress Award for the vast improvements in my grades! “

” I was a very shy person with low self-confidence when I attended I Am Gifted!™ Junior at 10 years old. I remember in Primary 2, I had to go on stage for a storytelling competition but froze the moment I saw the huge crowd.

At this school holiday programme, my coaches Carmen and Siew Kuan helped me realise I had to take the initiative to keep meeting new people to break away from my fears.

Now, I coach with I Am Gifted!™ to inspire other kids like the old me. I hope for the opportunity to coach in the overseas programmes when I get older.
