Tanvi Suman, from HKMA David Li Kwok Po College, is our latest Brain Game winner.

Writing has always been my passion. The moment I came across Brain Game, the writer in me sparkled with joy. I was sceptical at first – as a Form Six student with my DSE exams around the corner, I was at a crossroads as to whether I should indulge in something apart from my studies. But eventually I followed my heart and gave it a shot, and I’m so glad that I did!

Brain Game was my getaway from the intense academic pressure at school. Whenever I felt my confidence wane, writing and proceeding to the next round always lifted my spirits. It was a platform where I could express myself as honestly as possible, and improve my overall English proficiency and knowledge of certain topics. The thought-provoking questions allowed me to reflect on myself, my life and what I would like to bring into this world.

My favourite question of this season was, “If you could relive one day in your life, what would it be, and why?” That question made me reminisce about all the memorable moments of my life. I realised how wonderful life is and how incredibly lucky I am to share mine with such lovely people.

I would like to thank my family, friends and teachers for their unconditional love and support throughout all the seasons of my life.

Ms Wu, thank you for being the kindest and most patient teacher ever, and for all your English lessons filled with laughter and intensive drills that strengthened our foundations. Mr Carabio, thank you for all your unforgettable stories, for introducing me to such writing competitions, and for your encouragement throughout my journey in English since Form Two. Mrs Jolly, thank you for your guidance and fun-filled lessons focusing not only on English but also our overall thinking skills. Without you all, I wouldn’t have won this title.

Last but not least, thank you to Young Post for giving me this opportunity. And to all the students out there: seize every chance you are given, and go for it without looking back. I wish you all the best in your studies!
