“Every student has their strengths and weaknesses, like a colourful mind. Different colours represent different minds and different feelings. I will assist them in meeting their potentials. I aim to encourage the students to overcome their complex learning curves, especially during the pandemic. I believe we never stop learning to improve ourselves because there is no end. I hope to encourage students to learn from mistakes because we may learn from what we did as mistakes. I hope the students can gain and share the knowledge to apply it in the real world.”
