It has been nine months since I last posted an article, nine months……
Usually, I apologise for not writing articles, but this time I won’t because I had to take some time to focus on myself.
The last time I wrote was in January and as you guys would know I was a final year IB student at the time, therefore all the exam prep, practise exams and final hand ins were all going on around that time.
Today I sit here at my desk, in my dorm, at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) with huge smile on my face, knowing I made another dream of mine come true and this was because of all the hard work and effort which I put in whilst taking some time to myself.
Although, I wasn’t posting anything, I still did a lot of work spreading my message and my story. I spoke at another TEDx event, in which the theme was, “Facing Fears”. I also co-Mc’d a student lead charity fashion show which was supporting The Children’s Heart Foundation.
On a personal level, I achieved a lot recently. I travelled for the first time in 2 years this summer. I spent a week in Singapore and it was possibly the most amazing thing ever (I will be writing a post about this later). I was also awarded a full scholarship at HKUST for community leadership and engagement. On top of this, I celebrated my second year having a defibrillator at the beginning of this month and am now looking forward to crossing the two mark line with my LVAD.
Its been 2 months since uni started and its been extremely stressful, but I don’t think that should be a reason for me not to write anymore. Therefore I just wanted to write this post, to update you guys on some of the stuff which has happened recently, and that I will be back to posting more often. I cannot wait to share some of my stories from the recent months and I can guarantee that even though we're close to the end of the year, I’ve got some pretty exciting stuff happening in the couple of months!
