This is it. December 2019, the end of a decade. It's a crazy thought. Sure, barely anything would change because of the new decade, but I just couldn't help looking back to what I've been through so far in life. 'Transformation' might be a cliche term to describe this, but it's true. Thus, in an effort to end the year on a sweet note, I decided to show gratitude to the people I have met within this campus over the semester and my first year. Thankfully, Stevenson has just the right platform for that.
This fall, I was privileged to be part of an amazing cast for The Curious Savage. Over 3 shows, 2 hours per night, I've literally 'had the time of my life', as Mrs. Savage says in the play. I still reminisce about the amazing reactions of the audience, the improvisation we did when something goes wrong on stage, and the excitement of the actors. We pulled off a good show, and thus, I have a good story to tell.
This parents weekend, I received the opportunity to do something a little bit different. While everybody leaves home-bound to spend some quality family time, I woke up bright and early on a Sunday morning with my luggage and excitement, ready to take on a bus trip down to Los Angeles. This, is the story of my experience on the Southern California College Tour.
Summer has passed just like that, and even when I got double the number of days off I had at my previous school, it still went by lightning quick. Now, as another year of school dawns on me, Act II of my Stevenson trilogy begins. Here's the catch though: it's nothing like the previous year at all.
Hey there! My name is Matthew Fung, and I am a rising junior boarding student. I call Asia’s World City: Hong Kong my home, where I live with a family of four including myself, my parents and my younger sister who is turning 14 this year.
Hey there! My name is Matthew, and I am a junior boarding student. I am proud to call the vibrant city of Hong Kong home, and I am equally proud to return to Stevenson for a second year. I am a member of the Stevenson tennis team and a percussionist of the pit orchestra for the school’s annual winter musical. I really enjoy the uplifting spirit and close connections between students and faculty, as well as the stunning environment around campus which made me fall even more in love with nature and the great outdoors. Having been through an action-packed first year, I am looking forward to going through another year filled with fun and challenges, as well as encountering new friends along the journey!
