“I am very excited to participate and be a part of this amazing contest!
In the first competition, I wasn’t nervous at all. I felt confident. However, when I got my results, my score was not satisfied. In the second competition, I told myself “I need to get a high score to get into the final contest.” When the results came out, I was close to getting the perfect result, but not good enough, so I started getting worried and thought that I wouldn’t make it to the finals.
When I came back home from school one day, I was so excited to find out that I just managed to remain in the finals! In the finals, the test was very hard! I was not sure if I could be in Team Canada, but I told myself: Don’t give up! Try next year if I failed. A few days later, mom told me I was one of the members of Team Canada. This made me very excited. I am motivated to get ready for the competition. After a week and a half of training, I felt almost prepared, and just needed to get a little more studying done.
I know I will make lots of new friends in the world final. I am looking forward to the world contest!"
