Preethi Chandramouli, 16 To improve my social skills. I have always been a shy and timid girl. Therefore, I've decided to come out of my shell and communicate with others. One reason I wanted to participate in Top Teen was so I could convey my opinions to thousands of people I've never met. Sophia Haines, 14 To watch more news or read the newspaper more often. I believe that as we get older, it's important to know what's going on in the world. I hardly ever stick to my New Year's resolutions, but I truly hope that 2006 will be different. Raj Hiranandani, 15 To try to improve myself. By that I mean trying to be a better person, do better in my studies, and be more responsible. Also, I want to commit myself more fully to the things I do, because I sometimes find myself dropping out before the end. Whatever I do, I'll dedicate 100 per cent of my effort to it. Kirby Tsang, 17 To jog 30 minutes every day. It's a well known fact that doing 30 minutes of daily exercise is a healthy habit, but I have a range of excuses that stop me from doing it. This year, I'd like to jog regularly - not only to keep fit, but also to improve my running strength so that I can win a gold medal on Sports Day and fulfil one of my dreams. Catherine Ng, 17 To figure out my priorities and exercise enough self-control to dedicate myself to them. For example, whenever I buy a new magazine, I'll go home and read it, regardless of the mountain of work I have to do. I know that my homework is more important, but sometimes I just can't help slacking off. I need to learn to discipline myself, balance my time properly and stick to a schedule. Oliver Lodge, 17 I normally don't wait until New Year's to change or make a decision to do something. However, I'd like to do more exercise and play the highest level of football possible with a long-term goal of completing a marathon. My injuries have unfortunately prevented me from reaching these goals earlier, but hopefully I'll soon be fit again and can call upon and improve the skills I once had.
