  14. 1. The term 'never give up' and strong sense of determination and persistence is evident in the video. We must persevere on and not turn back to succeed. Displaying encouragement is also evident in the video. We should encourage a friend whenever they feel like giving up.

    3. Nehal: All the best in your work! You're doing great :)
    Myat Noe: Be awesome, and CHIONG ALL THE WAY!!! :D Work hard never back down :)

  15. 1. We must persevere till we reach our goal, and never give up halfway.
    2. I really want to achieve good grades and I want to be a good daughter and want to make my parents proud of me in whatever I do.
    3. Kimberly: You are a really kind girl. :) Hope you succeed in life! :D
    Lynette: All the best in whatever you do!! :D

  16. 1. -Never give up
    -You have a choice
    2. I aim to improve on my leadership and teamwork skills and confidence in speaking.
    3. Ryan: I hope you do well for your robotics and academic results. Remember not to give up and stay strong! Also, take care of yourself... Don't try to 'ninja' then hurt yourself again. :P ~BGroxxisninja~
    Qayyum: You have confidence when you present something during lessons and I really admire that fact but I hope you can have as much confidence soccer-wise. Don't always think that you'll pull the team down and all and NEVER have the "warm the bench" mindset. If you really think that you'll pull the team down and stay on the bench, don't you think you should train more and prove your worth? Remember: Training is an important factor, but confidence is equally as important.

  17. 1. Never give up. Encourage instead of discouraging others.
    2. I aim to be more confident.

    Words of encouragement

  19. 1.
    - Don't give up. Giving up on your dream is the same as giving up on yourself
    - To someone, a person who gives a person in need of encouragement, it may seem like no big deal and stuff, but to that person, it means a lot.
    I aim to create good memories, be more confident in myself, get good grades for my exams and stuff. xD
