Three things in life I learned if you want something is to have a strong determination, working hard and having a big imagination. The reason I say these three things are without determination you can’t work hard. Without working hard you can't get anywhere no matter how big the task is and last of all imagination, because your life will only be as big as you imagine it. I had a dream when I was younger which was to travel to a different country and now this dream is only 6 weeks away from becoming reality.
I'm starting to feel nervous but, I feel honored to represent Aorere College in the cultural exchange with the students from Jishukan High school from Japan. I'm excited to go on the bullet trains and see a school different to my own. I am also looking forward to meeting new people, customs as well as learning a new language. I am grateful to the Sponsors and Aorere College for making this dream of mine a reality.
