Because of the event, I joined the Red Crescent society in school and learned some first aid skills. But, I was not really settled on a career direction when I was in my secondary school and changed my ambitions frequently as I was interested with other helping careers, such as psychologist, counselor, and early-childhood teacher and so on. After the release of my SPM results – which was better than I had expected – I was unsure of where to go, science or art stream. As a result, I went and met my school counselor, Madam Wong. We had a counseling session and it inspired me lots.
During that time I was also traumatized by exposure to severe storms. According to Scottish Rite Hospital psychologists, the early neglect appeared to have impacted my ability to perform certain developmental functions typically encouraged and taught by parents. Because of my positive attitude, determination and the support and love of my parents, I have overcome these obstacles and I am successful in school with a 92+% average, rank in the top 20% of my class and will graduate on the distinguished plan with 15 college hours. I am involved in National Honor Society, Student Council, Yearbook, Spanish Club, Drama Club, Math and Science Club and I play Varsity Tennis. In the late fall of 2009, my mom was put on dialysis treatment three (3) times a week.

I became involved with the Rice Psychology Association, eventually becoming president and organizing notable speakers on topics such as behavioral medicine, false memories, and developmental psychology. In addition, I volunteered in a clinical research project on autistic children, which led to a position as a behavior therapist for a mildly autistic three year old. Related to my accent on human potential, I became integrally involved in the admissions process at Rice: first as a tour guide, then as a high school recruiter, and finally as an senior interviewer and one of the three students to read applications on the Admissions Committee. My involvement with the admissions process was a hands-on, everyday way to see and appreciate the capabilities of my peers; the task of assessing the needs and abilities of each applicant was a continually changing puzzle. I fully enjoyed the academic challenge of Rice, but I was also very involved in outside activities; identifying people who would be able to contribute to Rice in both of these ways was a challenging and enlightening
Some parents allow their children to stay home alone for the first few hours until their return, and some chose an alternative method of after school programming. I have chosen to use afterschool programming for my granddaughter, as I am helping her mother to co-parent. In my observation I have learned that the afterschool program that she attends may be no more that a glorified babysitting operation. When she comes home her homework is wrong, messy, and incomplete. She tells me she has been taught by her teacher things like how to spell the word, “butt” and how to look for leaks by locating brown spots on the ceiling.
An example of very intensive behavior therapy is in the NIMH Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD which involved the child's teacher, the family, and participation in an all-day, 8-week summer camp. The consulting therapist worked with teachers to develop behavior management strategies that address behavioral problems interfering with classroom behavior and academic performance. A trained classroom aide worked with the child for 12 weeks in his or her classroom, to provide support and reinforcement for appropriate, on-task behavior. Parents met with the therapist alone and in small groups to learn approaches for handling problems at home and school. The summer day camp was aimed at improving social behavior, academic work, and sports skills.
