As soon as I finished the 2nd global Spell Event, I went to the FLTRP to sign in even though I haven’t got over the jet lag. I’m a little bit tired, and I started to prepare for the competition which was performed on the following day. There were 33 competitors in the E group I entered for and I was No.21. It didn’t finish until 12 o’ clock. I was a little bit exhausted and I went to bed. I didn’t expect that I could make it to the top 3 competition! Well, that was unexpected to me. I could remember 2009 competition; I looked into the top 3, thinking about when I could be like them. Everything came silently.
I was kind of nervous. The top 3 in my group were all born in 1998 or 1999, and we had the same quality. Anyway, I was the top 3, and that was the dream I wished half a year ago! According to the competition before, I was the second one to perform and I could have some time to prepare. ‘Fine, everything is fine,’ I told myself, ‘You don’t have to be nervous, relax, deep breath.’ The score was announced, I was the champion. Everything came silently, again.
Thinking about this competition, I have to thank Miss Ji. Remembering about the time when signing in, I was the girl who was tortured most. The failure of CCTV speaking with talent competition made me feel depressed, I couldn’t stand another failure, I didn’t want to enter for it. And on the other hand, I entered for NCE 2 last year and got the first prize. One of the rules read: ‘Students who entered for the competition before and got the first prize should enter for a higher level if he or she wants to enter for the competition again. That is, I had to enter for NCE 3! How could I recite a LONG LONG text without learning it? But then, I thought of a saying of myself: I was not, NOT competing, but challenging myself, and getting over myself. And after Miss Ji’s encouragement, I made up my mind: sign for it! However, the more competing, the more confidence; and I got to the national final, I got to the top 3 competition, and I even got to the champion!
At last, I have to thank FLTRP and Unibridge education for offering me such a brilliant chance to get over myself; thank to Miss Ji who helped me for giving me courage and confidence, so that I can show myself thoroughly！
