I was afraid of new environment. I could still remember that when I was first in HKCT, I was a passive and reserved student being reluctant to new things. Thanks to my nice classmates and passionate teachers here, I have made a lot of good friends. It is a breakthrough in my life. Even more, I have become a caring person who is eager to try new things and face challenges. In this new semester, I learn and play with my classmates. After school, we formed a study group to revise in Language Centre. Sometimes, we joined extra-curricular activities and a Study Tour. It is my great pleasure to meet them in this year.
