Best Progress Award
Recipient in the 2019/20 Academic Year
Higher Diploma in Pharmaceutical Dispensing
Caritas Bianchi College of Careers
First of all, I would like to thank the Government for giving me the Best Progress Award this year on the recommendation of my College. I am sure there are many others who are more deserving of this than myself. Still, I see the award as a token of recognition for my hard work. It gives me immense satisfaction and means a great deal to me.
My performance in the first semester of my university studies was so poor that I began to wonder if I should drop out early. But thanks to the encouragement and support of my teachers, I realised that everyone runs into problems at some point in their life and when this happens, we should rise to challenges instead of running away. I gradually got to the root of my problems, stopped slacking and took every course seriously. I actively took notes in class, and, to compensate for my poor memory, reviewed what I learnt at home to consolidate my learning. My academic performance improved as a result.
Those who work tirelessly are blessed with good fortune. I have started to believe in the old saying of “Heaven rewards the diligent”. Last year was a meaningful year and it went by in a blink as I found a renewed zeal for my studies. Apart from achieving academic progress, I have seen myself growing day by day. Now, I am no longer a slacker and I strive for improvement every day. I will brave whatever challenges that lie ahead of me and chart a new course by giving full play to my potential.
