Being a student leader in West Spring Sec has given her many opportunities to develop herself in other non-academic areas. She treasured the times she had with her fellow student councillors when they had to meet and plan for the various school events and activities, forming strong friendships at the same time.
Her teachers would also always provide the necessary push and advice to her when they felt she was falling behind. The invaluable support she has received from both teachers and friends was important for her to achieve her goals and set her on her way to success.
