“I have never been on a cultural immersion program with my peers before so this trip will be a first. Aside from the fact that London is a beautiful city and visiting her has always been on my “bucket list”, it was more of the thirst for knowledge beyond the boundaries of Singapore and Jakarta that compelled me to join this trip.  I enjoy literature and given that London’s culture leans towards the arts, it would make it the perfect place to learn more about literature in general – at the Globe Theatre for example to learn more about Shakespeare. Furthermore, I will be given opportunities to watch 3 plays – something that I rarely do in Singapore due to time constraints. I am most looking forward to the poetry workshop conducted by Jacob Sam La Rose mostly because poetry writing is a favorite hobby of mine and I would love to learn more about its technicalities – such as its varied forms and structures so that I am able to improve my art.”
