ME Education students come from all across Asia. We teach and advise students of all ages from 20 of the top international schools in Hong Kong and over 40 local schools.
Due to the dynamic profile of our school, our students are a medley of ethnicities, cultures, languages, religions and opinions. This means that all our students can continually learn and grow through their interactions with each other. Being a part of such a diverse institute prepares them for a prosperous future in the global economy.
We are so proud of each and every one of our students and we enjoy showcasing their successes to the world. Because of this, we will feature students in a regular blog series to share their insights into what brought them to ME Education and why they are enjoying their time with us.
In this first series, we speak to Daphne, who has been studying with us for almost three years.
Daphne was born in Mainland China and moved over to Hong Kong because her family own a Hong Based business. Daphne’s family was referred to ME Education because another one of our valued students happens to be Daphne’s best friend. We are thrilled our school could serve as a way to reunite these two friends in a happy and safe environment of learning and growth. It is always easier making the transition to a new school when a friend is there to show you the ropes.
We chatted more to Daphne about her favourite subject and we came to learn that she enjoys learning English because it allows her to read and enjoy all the exciting English storybooks she loves so much.
Daphne is a wonderful student who makes her teachers very proud. She enjoys her studies and her teachers regularly tell her how well she is doing in the class. Daphne admits that it always makes her proud to receive positive feedback from them and to know she is performing well in her subjects.
When a star student sits down with us, we always have to ask what tips they can share about their exam preparation habits. Daphne tells us that she believes arriving rested and refreshed is a very important factor to consider when preparing for an exam. We couldn’t agree more. The research shows that in addition to resting your body, sleep actually gets the brain form new memories when you wake up.
Cramming late into the night is never a good idea as the brain is less able to absorb new information when it is tired. Being tired the day of your exams also interferes with the brain’s ability to recall memories, maintain concentration and perform well in the exam itself. Daphne’s tip to get a good night’s sleep before an exam is sound advice that all students would do well to note.
Daphne takes her studies seriously because, after graduation, she has her sights set on a career in Nursing. We asked her why she chose Nursing and she told us it’s because she enjoys helping people and feels that being a nurse is a wonderfully meaningful job which will allow her to help others when they are in need.
The classes at ME Education help prepare Daphne for her chosen career by, among other things, sharpening her language skills. This will allow her to communicate well with her patients and better equip her to assist them with whatever they need.
Although Daphne is a serious student with serious career aspirations, she still makes time for sport and exercise. Daphne loves playing Hockey and has set a big goal for her team to win this year’s hockey competition at the Hong Kong Hockey Association. We have every faith in this star student.
We asked Daphne, if she could travel anywhere in the world, where would she like to go first? Her answer was not the one we expected but a delightful choice. Daphne told us she would love to go to the North Pole to see the beautiful northern lights. The northern lights are a natural and exquisite light display in the Earth's sky, The north pole aurora is called the aurora borealis and we think that is an excellent destination to choose.
Lastly, we asked Daphne what advice she would give to other students who are considering enrolling at ME Education?
“Come and join us! You will have a lot of fun!”
We couldn’t say it better ourselves. We love that our students are as passionate about their education as we are and that they enjoy the ME Education environment so much. We also love watching our students grow and transition into the people they want to become. We will continue to do everything within our power to help them achieve their goals.
