1. Some fun moments in CVA? Everyday is full of fun! I remember being a part of the student council team. We worked to improve CVA’s environment, joined every meeting, and made plans and gave presentations using PowerPoint. And Joey! I love the days Mr. Sy brought Joey to class and we got to pet Joey, and Joey played some pet tricks, and we all laughed and had such a happy time! 2. Talk about a school activity day that impressed you? Halloween day!! We had a really good time and ate lots of Chinese food!!! I remember Mr. Sy and I both cosplayed as Harry Potter that day! 3. What was your biggest improvement in school? Be willing to speak English and become better at socializing! 4. What do you like most about school so far? Having so many nice teachers!!! Also, CVA has a nice studying and communicating atmosphere and I’d like to say it makes CVA more like a home not a school. That’s why I love CVA 5. What was your favorite subject during CVA? Why? English class! That’s my best time in the past to have a chance to enjoy English and speak a lot of English. That class helped me a lot before I enrolled in University. But still I don’t like Literature class especially university English class when your prof asks you to write a 800 word essay :( 6. Who was your favorite teacher? What do you remember about him or her? I think it’s hard to pick one because both Mr. Sy and Mr. Lou are nice teachers. They care about students' studies and their school life, and they never make the class boring! Also I miss our adorable Joey so hard! 7. Is there anything you regret during your school days in CVA? If you had the chance to come back to CVA again, what would you do？ I don’t regret anything because everyday I spent at CVA was rich and full! I remember the teachers and classmates I met and the days we spent together. Also, I would like to go back to CVA many times and I don’t need a reason!
