That one word sums up my entire reaction when I learned that I was selected to go to Zhuhai this summer! Honestly, words cannot describe how proud, accomplished, and excited I felt at that very moment. Especially given the competitive nature of this scholarship (not to mention that the government was paying for my complete trip), I was extremely shocked and overjoyed when I learned that I got the scholarship. To put it into perspective, I am one of 20 distinguished US high school students going to Zhuhai this summer, and one of about 600 high school students who were awarded any nsliy scholarship. I worked so hard up to this point to prepare for this scholarship, so being granted it was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had.
