Previous Awardees’ Sharing 

2023年度高中獎學金得獎者 – 葉漫琦:

我學習成績不是很好,但幸好我很喜歡跳舞還有畫畫,但這些在許多大人 眼中都是「浪費時間」的東西。很多家長都覺得自己的小孩要讀書、上大 學才可以養活自己,然而現今的社會趨勢已經改變,不再是成績決定一切。 從前的我也會覺得,我這些興趣是不是真的不該被接納?但透過CareER認 識了很多向不同方向發展的朋友,CareER亦提供不同工作坊,讓我更加了 解自己,同時能讓自己發現周圍瑣碎的事情,可能一個小小的舉動就能讓 別人很窩心。 這半年時間,每次的工作坊,友師聚會,讓我慢慢反駁了自己之前的想法。 現在我會告訴自己「我做的每件事情都有它的意義」、「注意力少點放在 批評自己的人身上」要完成這兩件事是很難,但我會慢慢進步。現在的我, 依然跳著舞,享受著跳舞給我的樂趣,享受著跳舞過後的心情,每次被汗 水充斥着的背部都是我努力的成果。最後我會和自己還有身邊的朋友說 「這個人生,你才是自己的主角」。

2023年度大專組得獎者 – 莊晶芯 :

在透過與師友的交流中,我接觸到各種不同的思考方式 和觀點,這拓寬了我的視野。而師友他們的經歷和見解 讓我更加開放心態地面對新的挑戰。在師友的相處中, 我亦深入了解到他們所面臨的困難,以及最重要的他們 如何克服這些挑戰。在他們的分享和創作師友作品之中, 我感受到了共鳴,這種同儕支持令我更加有信心地面對 自己的困難。同時因為我大學主修特殊教育,這個經驗 不僅豐富了我的知識,也讓我能夠更好地理他們的不同 的需求。我希望未來能夠將這次師友相處裡面學到的知 識和經驗應用到我的專業領域 。
