Carla is a girl who is a little bit older than me –but the same age with HuaXia, and comes from Philippines. After she got her balcony degree of biology, she worded for a year then decided to study further on masters’ degree.
I remember her self-introduction clearly even so many days have been past, cause it is a really brilliant self-introduction. She said she wants to get a degree on ecology and conversation, which could combine her favorate thing-travel-with work together. And she served for a NGO once, traveled to many places. Besides this, she loves children and could get along with them well. I still can remember her photo of balcony degree she showed to us on the self-introduction, with the long hair and beautiful smile, Carla looks so gentle and elegant.
Carla is a very hard working student. Afec-X gave us many works, such as reading materials and writing the proposals. Carla didn’t bring a laptop with her, so she had to go to library for the public computers. Though it is so inconvenient, she finished reading all the papers Chuck gave us and worked out a great proposal. And she sat in the very front of every lecture, taking notes carefully and asking questions. So she got the Prize as “Most Hard Working” Award!
Carla’s oral English is extremly wonderful, which I think is the best among all our girls. She uses the word “powerful” to describe my high-heels. And asked us “Am I looked rich now?” with the glisten braclet. Because she is the first Philippines I came acorss, I could not tell whether it is because of a Philippnie or because of herself. Besides oral English, she writes blog in English fluently. When I read her post ” On the Way Home”, telling us her experience about rushing to airport and getting the chance of sitting in the first class, I can’t help but laugh. What a brilliant story teller!
And Carla is good at playing with children, also, she enjoys playing with children. The four babies at Afec-X are very cute, and all of us like them very much. But Carla is the only guy could get their favorate impression. I like them too, but I don’t know how to get along with children, so although I wanted to play with them eagerly, I didn’t know what to say, what to do. But Carla is really good at this, she understands what they want, what they like, and they all like to play with her too! How amazing!
We once talked about going abroad for Ph.D, and she hadn’t yet decided. Well, in my opinion, Carla, you have passion and the will, you should go outside for further study! Good Luck!
