力迈中美·九华高中学术之星武丹妮(中英双语)

2018-11 14

我是武丹妮,现在是力迈中美国际学校九华高中校区卡文特九年级一班的学生。我一直相信是我的经历让我卓尔不群。我父亲是一位外交官,曾在多个国家的中国使馆工作过。所以我也有幸在多个国家学习并生活。我曾在阿尔及利亚学习了六个月,在黎巴嫩的贝鲁特美式社区学校学习两年,在苏丹的喀土穆国际社区学校学习了两年半。这些在不同文化之下的学习经历改变了我。

首先,在喀土穆国际社区学校学习时,我是一位热爱运动的学生会代表。在那两年的时间里,我学会了独立思考同时又为他人着想,也让自己解决问题和逻辑思考的能力增长了不少。在学生会的两年我一直作为师生间沟通的桥梁,后来也成为了我在公众面前发表演讲的积淀。那段时间我总要学着在最短的时间里做出最好的选择,我相信这也是我通向成功路上的一块垫脚石。


其次,我相继参加了学校的游泳队和田径队。后来也代表学校2017年4月到迪拜参加了中东联合杯竞赛,并获得了50米蛙泳的银牌。另外,在2018年4月在约旦获得了田径比赛的银牌。在体育训练中我深深体会到了没有付出就没有收获,因为并不是很有天赋的我,训练中付出了很多额外的努力。这些训练和比赛让我变得强壮、坚毅,最关键的是,切身体会到了没有无缘无故的成功。 此外,在之前的学校时我很喜欢骑马,还获得过Christie Henchie奖杯,并获得了当年的最佳进步骑手。其实每次骑马,我都会紧张和害怕,担心会从马背上摔下来,可是每次登上马背又跳下来时和马儿那种互动的感受又让觉得内心平和,并让我更加自信。骑马的经历让我明白从错误和失败中学习才能成功,回想起那段经历,仿佛还能感受到那份成功的喜悦。


再次,我一直热爱弹奏钢琴和古典音乐。我曾在高年级同学和老师面前表演了五首肖邦的曲子,这些曲子我已经是提前默背下来,学校给我颁发了肖邦奖。学长还让我跟学校乐队一起合奏,校长也让我在开学典礼上演奏。通过参加各种演出,我感受到有一项特长爱好是非常重要的,会遇到很多额外的机会。虽然我曾经在表演中会紧张,会担心自己演奏的不好,可是现在回想起来,自己就是在这些经历中一次次更加坚定和自信。


现在,回到中国之后,我很开心加入到力迈中美(国际)学校的卡文特班学习。这里最吸引我的就是,和之前学习过的所有学校比起来,现在的老师和学校设施都特别的棒。在力迈中美(国际)学校学习的这两个月的时间里,我已经感受到了这个大家庭的温暖。老师们对我们的支持和帮助让我很感动:每当我有需要求助老师的时候,他们都会耐心的为我解答所有的问题;所有的同学们也都互相帮助和鼓励,一起在适应和融入这个大家庭。


目前,我的目标就是努力为自己的将来提供更多的选择。这将帮助我以后做出自己的决定,而不是只有一条通向未来的路。我最喜欢的爱好之一就是听古典音乐,当我有压力或沮丧时,它能让我平静下来。这也帮助我提高了弹钢琴的水平。我希望能继续学习钢琴,并且希望能达到专业演奏的水平。当然,学术对我的未来也很重要。因此,我的目标是在课上努力学习,无论晴天下雨,课下继续每天练习钢琴。我相信只有我在力迈中美(国际)学校持续学习知识,磨练自己的音乐水平,很快我就会有飞跃性的进步,并且受益终生。

 My name is Danni Wu and this is my first year at Limai Chinese American International School. currently I am student of Class 1, Grade 9 of Calvert Program. I believe it is my experience that makes me unique. My dad is a diplomat and has worked in different Chinese Embassies in the Middle East. I was lucky to have the opportunity of studying and travelling in many countries. I have studied in Algeria for 6 months, Lebanon at ACS (American Community School at Beirut) for 2 years, and Sudan at KICS (Khartoum International Community School) for 2 and a half years. All the experience at the international schools in different cultures have changed me into a different person.


At Khartoum International Community School, I was one of the Student Council Representatives, and an active student who loves sports. Being the year group representative for two years, I have developed a habit of being independent while being thoughtful and supportive to others. In addition, I have developed my problem-solving skills, and improved on thinking critically and rationally as well. I think being a part of the student council helped me to communicate with teachers and my classmates better than I did before for that I was their communication bridge for two years. This encouraged me to be confident in public speaking and making announcements. I have always tried to get better at the skill to make the best choice in a small amount of time. That, personally, is an essential stepping stone to success.


I joined the Swim Squad and the Track & Field Team sequentially. Speaking of these two sports teams, I am proud to say that I earned a silver medal for my 50-meter breaststroke in the Middle East Unity Cup in Dubai (April 2017). In addition, a bronze and silver medal for Track & Field Meet in Jordan (April 2018). My time spent on the sports team made me understand the statement “No pain no gain”. I was never physically very strong, so the training was very hard for me. Those practices and competitions made me stronger, more persistent and most of all made me understand that success does not come for nothing. In addition, I love horse riding and have gotten the Christie Henchie Award in my previous school and a certificate of the best improved rider of the year. I’ve always have a little bit of fear every time I ride because I am afraid of falling off but my connection with the horse that I feel when I canter or jump makes me incredibly happy and will sooth me. It gave me the feeling that I could do anything. Riding taught me that failure is a step towards success if you learn from your mistakes. The experience also let me gain more confidence, and gave me the courage to be a risk taker. Those memories have let me tasted the sweet scent of success.


I am also a lover of classical music and a piano player. I have received the Chopin Award by memorizing 5 of his pieces and performing them in front of all the teachers and students in the Senior Section. The Head of Seniors asked me to play for the school assembly. Then, the headmaster asked me to perform on the First Day of School. I have participated in every musical performance or variety show. From all that, I know that to have a talent or a hobby is very important for that it brings us many valuable opportunities. When these events were being carried out, I was at times, terrified of the result. However, when I think about it from now, these are experiences that made me different, and made me more confident.


Now, I have come back to China and is excited to start my new journey at Limai Chinese American (International) School with the Calvert program. The elements of Limai that attracts me the most is that Limai have the most wonderful teachers whom I have ever encountered and the most advanced facilities that I have seen from all the international schools that I have been to. Even though I have studied at Limai for around two months, I felt the warmth of the big community. I was moved by how the teachers are always so supportive and positive towards us, and very thankful for their patience when I have trouble and turn to them in the offices. I can feel that the teachers and students are here for each other and they are helping me to adapt to and be a part of this big community.


Currently, my goal is to create as many paths for my future as possible. This will help me to make my own decisions later on, instead of having only one possible path that will lead to the future. One of my absolute favorite hobbies is listening to classical music, it calms me when I am stressed or depressed. That helps me improve on playing the piano too. I hope that if I keep working on the piano, hopefully I will reach the point of being able to perform professionally. Academics, of course is also important to my future. Therefore, my target is to crash the courses in class and continue practicing piano everyday no matter what or how the day is. I believe that if I continue to develop my hobbies and academics at Limai, I will soon see the change that will affect the rest of my life.
