Please introduce yourself.
Hello! My name is Kyi. I am from Myanmar. I joined Regents in year 10 as a scholarship student. Currently, I am in year 13 and I live in senior girl boarding house. I’ve been involved in the boarding council and as a girl’s boarding prefect.
How do you feel you’ve changed since joining the school?
I have changed a lot since I’ve joined Regents. Firstly, I used to be very shy and I worried that it would be difficult for me to make new friends. Also, when I began, my English was not very good. But now I have many international close friends. I enjoy learning all my subjects because of the very supportive and kind teachers at the school. Secondly, I thought that I would be very lonely and would find living in boarding house extremely hard. However, with the welcoming warm love and care from the boarding staff and my friendly friends, my homesick feelings went away. Moreover, I like feeling part of the Regents community because it feels like family. Through my 4 and half years at Regents, I have experienced many adventures and have learnt a great deal.
If you had to choose five words to best describe your life at Regents, what would they be?
They would be the following: Ambitious, Remarkable, Lively, Magnificent, and Challenging.
What do you like most about being a student at Regents?
To be honest I like everything. I really enjoyed learning in school and appreciate living in the boarding house. I love being involved in the Round Square Program because it pushes me to my limits and challenges me. It allows me to face the new world, and to truly become an international student. I enjoy communicating and working together with different international schools for service projects and other school outdoor activities.
I love learning different subjects at school. Especially studying English Literature, Drama and Mandarin. I didn’t like reading books before and I thought reading books was the most boring thing to do yet, surprisingly since learning English Literature, I found myself loving to read.
Drama classes gave me the self-confidence which I needed. The subject has enabled me to stand in front of people, without fear, and give a speech, Drama also enabled me to communicate more effectively with everyone. Since I enjoy learning different languages, Mandarin has become one of my more fascinating subjects.
And what are your hopes for the future?
I wish to be a language teacher and eventually an educational coordinator.
