Day 28: Why I Came to Microcampus
I thought I was coming to Microcampus for many reasons. To discover a new culture, and to step outside of the bubble etc. Microcampus was much more than that. I experienced so many things and I also learnt a lot about myself. I learnt some strengths and weaknesses that I have, and also what I am extremly bad at. I have made some small mistakes, and also some big ones. Thorugh that I have realized the extreme levels of procrastination that I have, and also sometimes I have an inability to follow rules.
"Microcampus does not build chanrecter, it reveals it." That is always repeated here on Microcampus. It is so true. I doubted that at the beggining, and I didn't think much about it. I thought of it as just another quote from Mr T. After about the 3rd week, it really took a toll on me. I started realizing how much my charecter traits were shinning through.
That to me is a bit of what Microcampus is about. Self Discovery. I realized what I was, loud, but of course many other things. I came to Microcampus, not only to emerse in the culture and local life. But it was about personal growth and discovery.
I came to Microcampus to learn about myself. To be apart of the culture, and to step outside of my comfort zone. I stepped outside of my comfort zone during the hike, and being away from my parents for a whole month. I dived into the culture everyday, in Sifang Jie and also whenever I went to town. And I did grown up things, I bought my own things, and I went to the bank. I also learnt during work times, that I am loud, I procratinate, and I cannot focus. But Microcampus taught me how to control and realize these things.
I came to Microcampus to learn about myself, others, and to become a bigger version of myself.
