Luo FuWei: Persevere Under Great Pressure

Luo FuWei is one of the many students who are able to continue their studies through the One More Year Scholarship Program. This is her story.

I worked extremely hard in the first semester of high school of studying nine topics. I received relatively good results on monthly tests during the first half of this academic year. Peer pressure was tremendous, which prompted me to increase my own pressure. Studying under this degree of stress produced unexpectedly poor results. The majority of my grades deteriorated. However, I noticed this issue after the final exam and instantly modified my study style and mindset.

LET’S GO!

We studied for the courses of the college entrance examination during the first academic term of high school. This semester’s learning attitude and ambiance were more relaxed and pleasant than the previous semester’s. The first monthly exam results showed a little improvement over the previous semester’s final exam, but there is still space for development. Almost 370 students in our school chose history, and my first monthly exam results were ranked around 100th among those who chose the same subject combination as myself. Despite the fact that this rating isn’t deemed high, it gave me the courage to continue with the same topic combination because it demonstrates my skills. At the same time, I recognize that this month’s monthly exam is merely a blip on the radar of my entire academic career. In the future, I will be confronted with more challenging difficulties, papers, and tests, and I will strengthen my decision and continue onward.

FUN SCHOOL MOMENTS

On December 31st, our class arranged a modest gala to welcome the new year. Our class decided to organize a dumpling-making exercise for the pupils. I actively participated in this exercise by making a few dumplings. During this particular exercise, I had a great time with my classmates. After we completed cooking the dumplings, we placed them in the pot and served them with dipping water. We all ate a lot of dumplings, and some of the students even sang and danced. Our supervisor also prepared games for us to do, which was far more entertaining than staying at home because I have many peers at school who can play with me.

THANK YOU

These are the moments from my day that I wanted to share with you. Thank you very much for your contribution. I realize the faith you are placing in me. With my objectives and goals, I will maximize my self-worth over the course of my life, and I vow to live up to this trust. This trust meets my parents’ sustenance and aspirations.


Thank you to ZURU for sponsoring students like FuWei. Special thanks also to her sponsors, Timothy & Michele S.
