“You’ve got to be able to make those daring leaps or you’re nowhere.”
After four weeks traveling on the web of subway in Singapore, I have come to believe these words.
I packed my bags of books and said goodbye to my hometown on October 8th, 2006. I caught a plane to Singapore to take the SAT tests.
I am an 18-year-old Chinese girl born into a poor family in West China. Going abroad seems impossible to the residents here. But I did it. I lived in Singapore alone for one month to finish the two SAT tests.
Although in the end I didn’t get a score as good as I had expected, I do value this experience. I think I have learned important lessons from this journey before I turn 18 today.
Once again, I believe what Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.”
