作品： The Influencial Trip I Took This Summer
The summer of 2018 saw the first trip that I ever made abroad, and alone. Apart of having to manage every aspect of my everyday life on my own, I also needed to cope with the unimaginable challenge I encountered which was what I deem as the most valuable experience l had during my two-week stay.
I was studying really well in my A-level courses when I was faced with a quite challenging situation. There was a competition in the Sidcot school where I studied. It was an extremely competitive one as it was completely new to most of the teachers working there and they didn’t know how to give students the points we needed if we wanted to win, and they didn't really want to give points.
It really took me a lot of courage to speak to my teachers, and tried to persuade them by explaining that I valued the prize not only as a pride for me but more as a recognition from my teachers. Well, in the end, I got several points in just one day, and surprisingly, I made a huge reversal and was rewarded the prize, being one of the two students who stood out among more than a hundred. I was excited, and that was a priceless experience for me.
