Briefly describe the culture of your school community and your involvement within it.What impact has the school culture had on you? How would you enhance or change it?
If I had to choose one word to describe my school's culture, it would be family.
My school was also my second home. Though cliche, but this is the exact feeling of every HNEUers. When first walking the halls of HNEU, I was baffled by the new environment, but I soon felt right at home due to the warm welcome I received.
In the beginning, the upperclassmen volunteers would enthusiastically come to our class everyday to show us more about the school, or simply just hanging out. As an introvert, this left a deep impression in my heart, so much so that, despite my shy-self, I joined the volunteer team as I entered my final year, hoping to provide the same guidance to the juniors the way our seniors did for us.
HNEU has something for everyone. The school's diverse array of clubs granted students an opportunity to pursue their interests, whatever they might be, as well as network with like-minded individuals. A former member of ECLUB, I dedicated my efforts to aiding students in need of improving their English.
Overall, my experience here allowed me to overcome my barriers and mature into a more confident person, making precious memories and relationships along the way. I suppose if there were any changes to be made, I would fight for the proposition that the school established a program connecting alumni, present and future students, as there is much we could learn from each other while sharing the roof of HNEU.
