Finds it challenging to manage her time; wants to do well in CAS but also needs more time to study. Finds she gets distracted easily when working (Facebook, phone, etc), so needs more time to do course work. Therefore, CAS is stressful. Likes doing the activities when she is there. Finds yoga actually relaxes her, even though the thought of spending time there causes her stress. Reflecting and filling in the forms. It takes time. Po Leung Kuk tutoring. She loves the students and the connections she has made with them. She realizes how lucky she is to go to school at ISF where English is taught daily. Makes her feel sad that not all Hong Kong students have the same privileges as she does. Cypberrun for Research. Didnt learn very much. Just stood on the side lines and cheered. It was interesting to see it, but she wanted more out of the activity.

Please work on finding some more action activities by December 2011. Quality and Commitment to Program: In terms of doing the activities, Elaine is very commitment. However, the commitment to also getting in the forms and doing the reflections needs to be improved. Reflections: When they are written, they are well written.
