The programme taught me skills that can help me in my education. It helped me get closer to my family. More importantly, it helped me get out of my comfort zone. The programme boosted my self esteem and increased my confidence. I am now able to talk to other people easily. I’m more outgoing, and I can speak in front of my class. I began to volunteer for many programmes. It totally changed my life. You should join this programme. You will not regret this.

 I attended I Am Gifted! Programme 11 years ago when I was 15. Before attending the programme, I was not motivated and did not know what I want in life. My mother was worried that I could not even pass my O levels. I was very short tempered and I snapped at my mother all the time. I did not realise I was hurting the person who loved me the most.

Through the programme, I turned my life around and realised that every action I take has to be the best for myself, and that includes my studies and career. I made a goal to be a lawyer. The speed reading strategies helped me a lot while I was studying law in Australia. I graduated in 2014 and practised law in Australia for a year before returning to Singapore to be with my parents.

The 4 years of studying for a law degree certainly wasn’t easy. There were many times that I thought I couldn’t handle the exams but I remembered what I learnt and persevered.

” Before I Am Gifted!™ , I was unmotivated to study as I felt that it was boring. I had the mindset that studying would not help me at all. I also did not have a goal.

However, during I Am Gifted!™ , my coach shared with me the importance of setting a goal and how I can control my emotions to make the right choice. I also learnt useful study techniques like note-making, speed-reading and super memory.

I feel that this school holiday programme is different from many others I have attended previously as it does not just focus on study skills. It also shared with me the importance of appreciation, to love my parents and be thankful for what they have done for me.

The most memorable event in the programme was when I learnt that the most important person in my life is myself and that no matter what happens I will be here to help myself get back up on the right track. “

” I Am Gifted!™ was an eye-opening experience. It taught me the importance of oneself, true friends, and the key to communicating well with my loved ones.

The Learning Mastery skills helped me study subjects much more efficiently. I learnt to manage time between my studies, 2 CCAs and music classes (I was pursuing a diploma in music). I set a goal to be the top 25% in school, and despite failures, I learnt to persevere and learn from my mistakes.

At the end of Sec 3, I topped Biology and Chemistry and ranked among the top 30 — far surpassing my goal. I even won the Edusave Merit Bursary and Good Progress Award for the vast improvements in my grades! “

” I was the kind of student that gave up easily and hence my grades had always been average.

I Am Gifted!™ helped me understand that there are no such things as failures in life but only learning experiences. This concept stuck in my head and I followed it even after all these years.

Thanks to the trainers, they showed me the 10-step effective study formula and as a result I scored 10 A*s for my final exams.

More importantly, I understood the importance of “Who I Am Makes a Difference”, inspiring me to take small steps to achieve success in my life! “

” Giving me the opportunity to attend I Am Gifted!™ was one of the best decisions my parents have made for me. Before the programme, I was a lazy, impatient, unsociable and irresponsible person who always argued with my parents.

This school holiday programme not only helped in my academics, but empowered me to be more confident, positive and focused on all the goals I set in life.

I appreciate how much my parents love me now and understand that without them, I wouldn’t be where I am. I Am Gifted!™ is a MUST-GO for children of all ages. “

After attending the school holiday programme, I transformed my mindset and found it easier to achieve better grades in my exams. I started to score A’s consistently for Maths. I also found myself arguing less with my parents. “

” I was a very shy person with low self-confidence when I attended I Am Gifted!™ Junior at 10 years old. I remember in Primary 2, I had to go on stage for a storytelling competition but froze the moment I saw the huge crowd.

At this school holiday programme, my coaches Carmen and Siew Kuan helped me realise I had to take the initiative to keep meeting new people to break away from my fears.

Now, I coach with I Am Gifted!™ to inspire other kids like the old me. I hope for the opportunity to coach in the overseas programmes when I get older.

" Before I Am Gifted!™, I was extremely unmotivated. I had failed 3 subjects (F9 for Science) when my father sent me for this school holiday programme. After the programme, I came in top 10 in school for O-Levels, scoring an amazing A2 for Science! "
