Today was the second day of camp and I was scheduled to teach today. I must admit that when I first saw the requirments I felt a bit challenged. However, because I wasn’t the first one to present, I was able to see how my peers presentations went. After observing I felt more confident in my lesson as I realized that we were all just teaching a specific part of STEM. I was worried at first about my presentation not being elaborate enough. But after I finished teaching I felt confident in the material that I had taught. Overall, this was a great experience for me and I really enjoyed teaching the students in Anhui.
The leadership convention was very interesting. It was the first time I experienced this type of event. The convention was really short. We arrived relatively early at night so the first there was no one in the dorm. I slept alone which was kinda weird since I thought there would be people. I was lucky that the translators and volunteers were there to assist me or else I would be so lost. There were shower cards which was very interesting since I never knew that exist. Then, It was the "first day" we had to get the green shirts/uniforms. After that I just went back to the dorm and fell asleep. I woke up because the teacher wanted to meet up. After meeting up, I forgot completely what happens. I think my roommates arrived, which I thought was great. The first round was pretty scary since it was me and my partner going up to a large stage. I realized that some of the people who asked questions were mean they asked were should I implement the treatment in china. I am like what the heck, I don't even know cities in china come on. Then came round two, it was with my roommates and others in one group. I think it was group 49. We had lots of fun. Then we had a project to do in one day, which was hard. Next thing we know it is that we had problems with transferring the project then we have finally got it done. I skipped the third round. The third round was honestly not hard. Finally, we were done so we can now tour. I would also like to thank all the teachers, friends, translators and volunteers for treaty me with care. The teachers really supported all of us with their positivity although some of us are really naughty (me).
