| I attended I Am Gifted! Programme 11 years ago when I was 15. Before attending the programme, I was not motivated and did not know what I want in life. My mother was worried that I could not even pass my O levels. I was very short tempered and I snapped at my mother all the time. I did not realise I was hurting the person who loved me the most.
Through the programme, I turned my life around and realised that every action I take has to be the best for myself, and that includes my studies and career. I made a goal to be a lawyer. The speed reading strategies helped me a lot while I was studying law in Australia. I graduated in 2014 and practised law in Australia for a year before returning to Singapore to be with my parents.
The 4 years of studying for a law degree certainly wasn’t easy. There were many times that I thought I couldn’t handle the exams but I remembered what I learnt and persevered.
