The Last Days with Wensu Ng
By: Ashley Park
The time has finally come for the seniors to graduate high school. Senior Wensu Ng is currently preparing for her upcoming graduation as she is so excited to explore the real world.
Ng is planning on attending Northeastern University with a combined major in Business Administration (Marketing) and Economics. After college, Ng hopes she can take some time to travel to France, Australia, and Hong Kong as she has never been out of the country.
Throughout Ng’s high school career, she has been a part of numerous clubs, such as Model United Nations (MUN), Girl Up, and LEO Club. Aside from the clubs, Ng has been the class of 2020’s secretary and treasurer for all 4 years. She has also been running an Elementary Debate Program with two other individuals. Ng has also been an active member of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) since 7th grade! As an active member, Ng has had the opportunity to travel to San Antonio, Texas to represent Ayala’s FBLA.
“FBLA has even played a role in who I’ve become as a person, so it’s been the most impactful in my life as well,” said Ng.
Besides school accomplishments, Ng has successfully reached one of her personal goals in high school. “I think I’ve accomplished a lot in terms of academics, but my biggest accomplishment in high school is definitely how I’ve grown as a person. As cliche as that sounds, I came into high school as a shy, timid girl and looking back on it, high school allowed me to go out of my comfort zone and get out my shell. I’ve gained a sense of confidence and courage that I didn’t have freshman year,” said Ng.
High school has changed every senior both mentally and emotionally as they are coming out of high school as a different person than when they first stepped into the school. Like Ng, other seniors will also have a hard time transitioning from high school to college as many seniors will not be able to see their classmates and friends who have been a part of their lives for a long time.
"I’ll miss seeing my friends the most. During high school, I’d get to see them during passing periods or even have classes with them, so the idea of moving across to the other side of the country and not getting to see my friends every single day is heartbreaking,” said Ng.
As Ng’s high school career comes to an end, Ng will never forget this chapter of her life as she will forever remember all the memories she has made throughout high school.
“I think the best advice I can give to incoming freshmen is just to go with the flow. It’s really easy to get caught up in everything and all of the chaos, so just let things happen. Everything will eventually fall into place, so there’s nothing worth worrying or stressing about,” said Ng.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
