作为USAD Chapter Leader，我很高兴与另外七位学生一同参与了USAD 2020。在这漫长的准备过程中，大多数的学生都积极地参与了学习seminar和自主学习，为USAD比赛付出了珍贵的时间和精力。
This was my second time to participate in USAD, and it was the first time for me to be a leader of USAD Chapter in SDA. After joining the USAD last year, I made up my mind to fight again next year, so I came.
For me, USAD is not only a competition, but also a precious learning experience. The interdisciplinary study of ten courses enables us to understand one thing in all directions and to integrate the knowledge learned in each course. Even without learning the whole subject, we can still learn more from the subject we like, and try to learn the subject more holistically.
As a USAD Chapter Leader, I'm happy to join USAD 2020 with other seven students in SDA. Most of the students actively participated in the learning seminar and self-study during this long preparation process, and paid their precious time and energy for the USAD competition.
As a captain, as well as a member of the USAD team, it is a great honor to walk with the other seven students through the difficult journey. I'm sincerely proud of all the participants in the USAD2020.
Please remember that the time we spent, the knowledge we learnt, and the unique and precious learning experience we got will not lose their values no matter you have won a prize or not this time.
I hope we'll meet again in USAD next year.

As far until now, the biggest fortune this CTB experience has brought me, is the privilege of being the “captain”. That is, act as one of the essential members of a team. After all, I was given the responsibility to organise the team, and rush everyone to work before deadline—just kidding. Although there were times I feel stressed of the extra responsibilities, what I remember at last will always be the team supporting each other and endeavouring towards one mutual goal. I’ve also been given the opportunity of knowing my team better, knowing “team” better.
From ChristinaLao --Y11
Preparing for the competitions is a long and arduous journey, especially when it comes to prepare for two long and time-consuming contests. I can recall the moments that I stayed at the dorm and reviewed the materials from 9 to 12, when I hardly believed I could make it despite going through hundreds of pages and taking tons of notes; it feels the same way when I was packing my suitcase to the dorm and spending hours on revising the 20-page research report at weekends. It’s not only the pressure and sense of urgency that I face, but also the conflicts on my schedule with my schoolwork and extracurricular activities, as well as the anxiety before the really contest. Fortunately, in the end, everything is worth it. And this experience makes me grow and appreciate as well.
