I think through these rounds, I have improved my public speaking, time management and self-management skills. While the former is obvious, the latter may be somewhat surprising. As many know, WSC has a syllabus, or a ‘theme’ for each season. This is a very long webpage with a seemingly infinite number of links, which need to be read; that is if one wishes to have better results and more medals and perhaps even a trophy. While I don’t think it particularly necessary for regional, it is a must for Global. As I hadn’t even so much as touched the site, I had to read all the links from top to bottom in around 2 months, while also completing my summer holiday homework. This required me to make an entire summer schedule, and a daily timetable. It was a stressful holiday, but I still managed to accomplish many things during that time, and I think it is much better than just lazing about for an entire holiday.
