2nd and 3rd winner Storytelling competition – PSKD Mandiri 20132nd and 3rd winner Storytelling competition – PSKD Mandiri 2013

Posted by on Tuesday, 29 October 2013 in Achievements, News

My heart was beating so fast. Joanna and I were extremely curious and  nervous at the same time. They were about to announce the 3 winners for the junior high (SMP) level. We were in an unfamiliar environment, in another school called PSKD Mandiri, taking part in a story-telling competition against schools like St. Theresia, PSKD Mandiri, etc. It was obvious Joanna and I, from Penabur International Tanjung Duren SMPK 8, in the class of 9 Business, were totally panicked.

The theme for the competitions held in the quaint, yet warm school of PSKD Mandiri was “Rise Up, Live Today and Seize Tomorrow”. It was a totally different type of theme since, this time, we had to make up our own story to fit the theme. It was pretty interesting, because we pretty much only had 2 days to really practice for the competition, since we were asked to join the competition on Monday, the 21st of October, while the competition was on the 24th. This meant we had to prepare and finish the story by Tuesday, which we did. From this, we spent as much time as possible to perfect the story and to practice the story. It was pretty astonishing that we had so much to think about and do in such a short time frame, but we managed to get everything done and ready on time.

“And the 3rd winner is…Rachelle Wong from Penabur International!”

I was shocked. Stunned. I couldn’t believe, after all the hard work, all the long hours of practicing and skipping lessons in school, I won. It took me a while to get up on stage to receive the trophy and certificate, because of the phase of shockness I had. Once I did, the presenter called in the second winner. A sudden thought and feeling occured in mind. Joanna’s got it. She’s gonna win second.

“The 2nd winner, also from Penabur International is Joanna Shaddai!”

As soon as both of us received the trophy and certificate, we literally squeeled together, on stage, very proud of what we have achieved. I felt like Joanna and I have made our school proud, our English teacher Ms. Zenn proud, our parents proud, and most of all, ourselves proud. The support we had from everyone was overwhelming, and although none of us won the first prize, it was an awesome experience I hope I’ll be able to cherish for the rest of my life.

Story telling competition – Trisakti 2013Kompetisi story telling – Trisakti 2013

Posted by on Monday, 14 October 2013 in Achievements, News

The auditorium was filled with people. Almost all of them were contestants in any one of Tarumanagara’s Icon English competitions. High school students, university students, it didn’t matter. They were all bigger than me and very intimidating. They surrounded themselves with groups of their own peers, comfortably chatting away as they waited for the closing ceremony to start, and more importantly, for the contest winners to be announced.

Minutes passed, and with every ticking second I felt my confidence ebb away. By the time the closing ceremony started, two hours after it was supposed to, I was a nervous wreck. The ceremony comprised of several artistic performances that involved dancing and singing. As much as I wanted to watch the performances, I found my attention wavering as my thoughts kept floating back to whether the quality of my writing was good enough to win something.

When they did get to the results, they started with the group competitions such as the Quiz Bee and the Amazing Race-esque marathon. The whole time, I was picking at my nails. Eventually, they reached the Short Story results. I felt so tense and alert the whole three seconds they paused for dramatic effect. When they mentioned my name for third place, I was shocked into silence and paralysis. It was only when they mentioned my name a second time and urged me to join them up front that I managed to move. And when I did, I felt so proud.
