Impact of Donations
“…The transition from a non-swimmer to a scuba diver means a lot to me because I have overcome my fear of water and challenged myself… In addition, the school life here is very dynamic and vigorous. Studying in a boarding school with students from all over the world is just marvellous because I can get numerous hands-on experiences which expand my knowledge about the world and various cultures. Over the two years, I have had the privilege of learning about myself and obtaining more skills. I really appreciate that LPCUWC has offered me many opportunities to learn new things and extend my potential.”
“As a child born in a suburban area, surrounded by criminals, and exposed to violence, nothing would be expected from me. Now I know how the world looks like, and I know that so many have suffered more than ever I did. At LPCUWC I learnt that people have different personalities and different views of the world, and that we should respect their opinion in the same way that we want ours to be respected. I learnt that unity is more important than individualism, and that we don´t need to be rich to help other people… I really changed, and without LPCUWC I would still have an unrealistic view of the world.”
“Attending LPCUWC was more than just a dream. I wish and hope that more people could benefit from this incredible experience, as I do. I was welcomed with bright smiling faces, warm hugs and loving people. The first thing which hocked me was my clothes which I left in the laundry room. When I went there after a while, they were cleaned and dried. No doubt, that was my very first positive impression about LPCUWC. I can clearly feel the positive changes hat have happened to me, whether in terms of personality, academics, life skills, social or leadership skills. I am simply thankful to Li Po Chun United World College which has helped me see the world from a different perspective.“
