|Freshmen Orientation Week - October '09|
|Did I forget to mention the fun I was having? - Christmas '09|
Come October 2009 and my life changed for the better the moment I stepped onboard the flight to Singapore. Ever since then, there has been no turning back. I was beginning on a clean slate. In Steve Jobs' words, "You are already naked, there is no reason not to follow your heart." The next two years have been the most amazing ones that I've ever had. It has been an adventure about which I can go on and on and on, but I'll save that for some other time. Being in Singapore made all the difference to me and I cannot be thankful enough for the opportunities this country has to offer. I got everything that I wished for and there were some other things that just completely blew me away. It was here that I actually began to do 'great work' because I was doing what I loved. The teachers who taught me were some of the best I have ever come across. Some of them were industry veterans who were the best people to turn to for seeking valuable advice. Something that I noticed about some teachers was that the ones who were the most respected and dedicated are the ones who completely erased the line that separates a student and a teacher. It is this tiny group of individuals that make all the difference in a student's life. The rest just impart information, nothing else; barely even knowledge.
