My Castle On The Hill

Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill” was a nostalgic look back at his childhood. His concert, for me, brought up emotions of the first ever concert I attended at the age of 13. It was in Kuala Lumpur and a part of the My World Tour. If you haven’t guessed it, the first artist I…

The First Best Delegate

At my seventh Model United Nations Conference, I won Best Delegate for the first time. I attended as the delegate of Myanmar in the United Nations Office of Drug and Crime (UNODC). As I walked up the stairs and onto the stage, I had to do everything in my power to keep the tears from…

Go with the Tide

In a world where modern journalism has overtaken the art of old-fashioned newspaper writing, the BRATs Young Journalists Programme managed to incorporate both into their recent camp at Resorts World Langkawi.

SISC 2016

On the 28th of May 2016, I attended St.George’s Girls School’s 7th International Students Conference with the theme “Left brain, Right brain, Whole brain?” held annually in Penang. The conference this year -just like the two conferences I have been to before- which went on for a period of five days was held at the…

Vivacious 

The main reason I ever wanted to get into St.George’s Girls School was because of its cheerleading team. To be a part of their squad, was the dream. But sometimes, you don’t really understand the wishes you make. Nothing ever mattered to me, except getting on the team. I didn’t get into their team during…
