Service as Action 2018-19

1. How did you become more aware of your own strengths and areas for growth?

I participated in the Lower School Strings Orchestra as an assistant as I am a violinist. By having an opportunity of being an assistant for kids from grade 3 to 6, I became aware that I have an ability to teach people what I know well, for example, showing kids how to pitch specific notes. I also found out that I am capable to notice whether the kids understand what the teacher is talking about through their facial expression and their attitudes toward the class.
2. How did you undertake challenges that developed new skills?

Whilst being part of the club “The Reading Tree”, I challenged myself through applying for Executive Council position. Even I was scared to apply and do an interview with the previous Executive leaders and the teacher, I undertook the challenge and thought that this will be a great chance of getting into an unfamiliar situation.  Instead of making things up that might help me to be selected, I tried my best to be myself and be honest, and got in! As a result, I developed a challenging mind and self-confidence.
3. How did you discuss, evaluate and plan student-initiated activities?

I started to think of what I like to do and what I am good at, thus I came up with an idea to participate in our school orchestra as a violinist. However, since our school didn’t have an Upper school orchestra, I decided to join the Lower School orchestra as a helping buddy every Wednesday after school. I thought this will be such a great chance to get to know how to treat people who are younger than me and how to actually help out people using my skills.
4. How did you persevere in action?

There were some times that I had to persevere in my action. Since I am an executive leader of my section, whenever people didn’t come without any excuse but I had several notices that I had to tell to people, I had to find them out or email them and report why they didn’t come to the club meeting.

5. How did you work collaboratively with others?

As all of my service as actions were cooperating with others, me and others shared our effort and helped each other. For example, when I went to the YWCA Ming Yue District Elderly Community Centre, I collaborated with my classmates in order to prepare for the game that will be played with the elderly. I also collaborated with the elderly while playing the game by helping them to fold papers and do catch.
6. How did you develop international-mindedness through global engagement, multilingualism and intercultural understanding?

In the club “The Reading Tree”, we are aiming to increase the education rate of English inside and outside of Hong Kong. I developed international-mindedness through being interested and actually teaching children how to read a book. Speaking and teaching English helped me develop international-mindedness as I am an English speaker who is Korean, understanding their culture at the same time.
7. How did you consider the ethical implications of your actions?

I considered the ethical implications of my service as action through understanding that my action would definitely be a help to someone. In other words, I valued my actions so that I can be engaged in the services as action.
