Jennifer Cheng, 16 I had a summer teaching job. One of my students was from a poor background. I once asked her what she wanted to do in the future. She said that, as long as she could provide for her family, she would be satisfied. Another time, I did an exercise with her where we had to count the number of countries in Asia. She told me that, although she will probably never be able to visit these countries, it made her happy just to read the names. I decided to give her my world map as a present. Hopefully, if she can see the whole world before her, she will realise how much there is in the world for her to see. And that, just sometimes, we need to live our lives for ourselves. Steven Lee, 15 I participated in the Music Marathon organised by Oxfam. I donated $500 so that I could play a piece of music on the stage. At first, I was angry that I'd entered, as practising so much made me exhausted. After the performance, however, I realised it was a very worthy event. Even though the recipients of the funds couldn't listen to my performance, I'd like to think that the little money I donated will really help. After all, it's better to give than to receive, isn't it?
