Finding roots, reconnecting
MANY children take their fathers for granted. Mine died of cancer when I was 12. The loss of that someone who provides, cares for and protects you left a void in my life.
Last year, I was able to fill that void. I went back to my roots, seeking my dadís relatives in China and walked the paths my dad walked, and in so doing, understood how backbreaking his life in China had been.
After having met relatives who look like him, I feel reconnected to him.
I achieved another milestone in my life last year with the publication of my first storybook for teenagers.
This is my contribution towards encouraging more students to read English books in the hope that they will improve their proficiency in the language.
In schools, this year will be more challenging, as the number of student increases in Form Six. The work load will also increase. I hope these students will strive to do their best.
On the nationís front, I hope weíll have our General Election soon and that whoever comes into power will be fair and just.
There are enough resources in this country for everyone to share.
