Today, I will be sharing with you about who I am=).
My life have always been very vacillating. From primary school, I have been studying alone in different cities. Just my high school career, I have studied in three different countries and five different cities. The diverse experience trained me with an ability to adapt to new experience rapidly and rendered me with an unique and dimensional viewpoint. Studying alone in different cities taught me how to be independent. However, the experience also made me a susceptible bullied target as a new student during the time. Despite feeling devastated at first, I was able to make the negative experience into a positive stepping stone. Anti-bullying have always been one of my biggest beliefs and my main platform. I have just founded my own anti-bullying society in BC called “Help Stop Bullying International Association” (Justin Trudeau as the society’s Honorary President).
Circling back to my beloved Country Canada and my beautiful hometown Vancouver, I have been engaging myself passionately in school and in the community.
In school, I am a straight A student with an average of 93%-97% and a 5 or 4 score on 6 APs in total. Despite the overloaded courses, I was able to balance my passion with my academics. Outside of academics, I am also the Student Council Secretary and President for multiple clubs. Outside of school, I also passionately engage in volunteering with organizations, winning music competitions, performing for different events, etc.
I am very passionate. I believe a person without passion is basically dead inside. I have a lot of passions, and my biggest passion is music. I started playing the piano at the age of 4, learned ballet and Chinese traditional dance at the age of 6, and also taught myself how to play guitar and ukulele later on. However, when I first wrote my original song, my whole world changed. It is such an amazing feeling to be able to write your own melodies to convey emotions that cannot be express through words. I started to fall in love with song-writing. Constantly writing songs was the water to my soul. The feeling of creating a melody of your own was ineffable! Being strongly influenced by music at a young age, I realize that music became a inseparable part of me. Gradually, it became a habit, a hobby, a company, and then to a belief. If I did not sing or write any songs for one day, I will feel empty inside. Music really shaped the person I am today. I cannot imagine who I will be like without music.
At first, music have always been something personal to me. I never really shared my music with others. However, after a few years, I start to realize that passion without a positive purpose is useless. I begin to make my passion an “external” thing instead of an “internal” one. Not only did I started to enter singing and songwriting competitions (such as The Voice of China, Vancouver Youth Talent Showdown, Solid Gold Singing Competition etc.), but I also started to write/record/perform numerous original songs for societal issues (such as environmental problems, bullying issues, gender equality etc). I was invited to write/record an original campaign song for a MP candidate while volunteering for Canada’s Federal Election. I also wrote,recorded, and produced an original song for the community’s “Earth Day.” In addition, I often volunteer to perform for many charity and fundraising events.
(Below is a song I wrote, produced, and recorded for “Earth Day” called “To Mother Earth.” I hope you will like it =) )
Contributing my talents to the community made me feel satisfied, content, and truly happy. I felt this strong feeling again when I started to compete in Miss Teenage Canada. It is such a great competition for young talented and kind-hearted youth to gather together and spread their love on this stage. I hope to express my passions, what I believe as the true definition of beauty, and my anti-bullying beliefs on this platform!
Now, I am so excited to take a step further on to my next journey with MTC. I hope to challenge myself by being the next MTC to continue to “be inspired” by others and also “to inspire” others!
Thank you to all the ones who supported me and thank you to Miss Teenage Canada and the people there. I have no doubt that this will be a valuable journey that I will remember for the rest of my life!
Thanks again and stay tuned for more blogs and updates=)
Live honestly, valuably, and passionately!
Lots of love,
