Hi, I am a Grade 9 student studying in UWCSEA, Singapore, which I moved to 3 years ago from China. I am really passionate in blogging and writing journals of places that I have been to.
I created a Chinese blog 2 years ago, sharing news, my writings, my experiences and sometimes my designs on it. It encourages to write more, read more and share with others
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss
It is a a very enjoyable thing to do. "When I am playing badminton there are only two people in the world, myself and my opponent. "

I am a student studying in UWCSEA, also a blogger, reader, and a runner sometimes. Do I have other names? Oh yes, my classmates back in China always called me "Shilia".
For me, a blog is like a diary, except that it can present things in lots of ways which a diary cannot, for example, all sorts of media, graphics. Also, a blog allows you to share your life experiences with others. I always feel happy when someone read about my experiences and find it interesting, or maybe when my blog posts help others and bring convenience to them. These are all reasons why I am blogging.
This is probably too much to be written, but I will still list some of them:
- friends (a lot)
- better writing skills
- coding skills
Nightingale is a blog that I created in 2018. Unlike "Celia的博客" (https://blog.becomingcelia.com), the blog posts in this blog are all written in English. Also, this blog is more professional, with lots of my essays, my research projects and what I have learnt from classes.
Why is it named "Nightingale" then? When I was trying to find a name for my blog, I suddenly realize that nightingales always sing in June, which is exactly when I am born. So, that might be the reason why I named it this way.
No, I don't believe in religoins, but I respect them would like to study about them. I have things from different religion in my room, such as buddhas, a Shiva statue, crosses. The image of me at the top of the website makes me kind of like a Muslin, but it is actually just helping me to block the desert sun.
