Testimonials from World Academy Members

Abigail Wang

World Academy gives me power and encourages me to face the changes in my life. I learnt how to manage time, how to set up a project, how to work with a team, and how to prepare for an interview. What influences me most is how to be a leader and how to be a better me. When I was a freshman last year, I dared not express my own ideas or even put my hand up in class. Now I have my own voice, no matter in class or giving a speech. and even talking to a professor from a famous school or company. WAFW tells me I have a voice and I have a choice so I challenge myself. I can! I will!

I learned how to time management, balance my life, build a project and evaluate the results. Time management allows me to make progress everyday. In the beginning, I write a list about all the things I need to do at that day, I maybe just can finish few things. But now I insist on this habit, so I can do more things. I can manage my time and life better.

I am a first member of World Academy. I took part in Warm Heart project. This project is to find clothing for rural children who cannot attend school in winter because they do not have warm clothing. I have never thought in detail about many problems they face that keep them from getting an education But now I have changed that. I often sit down and think over things. From learning smart goals, managing time. I feel that my lives are more rich.
