With graduation around the corner, what’s your biggest fear about the future?
Not being disciplined enough to stick to one thing: I have a tendency to want to do many different things and I get bored easily when something starts to get repetitive. I hope I can learn to be content and disciplined in just doing a set thing for a while when I get my first job!
Share with us one of your fondest memories from your time so far in university.
All the small little things: hanging out and talking to my friends in hall till 6AM despite having class at 10AM, or the many school social events and celebrations we have. All these small things add up into one great experience .
If you had the chance to have an unlimited quantity of one thing, what would it be?
I would love to have unlimited energy (laughs). I love doing so many different things at once and I wish I had all the energy in the world to do that and not be worn out in the process. I would also love unlimited patience to wait things out when the process gets dreary.
What was the last book you read that changed your view on something?
I recently finished the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, and it changed my perception of what success is—it made me realise that success isn’t just dependent on what you can do for yourself, but also depends on the impact of those around you, who can really add on to your output.
What’s the biggest thing you’ve learnt about yourself over this year?
That I have a long way to go in terms of growing up. I want to gain more maturity over the next year and grow into the person I hope to become.
