Hong Kong Science Fair - W.M.E (Writing Made Easy)

Updated: May 7, 2023

W.M.E was an idea. It was also an amazing experience. W.M.E was a project that we created to help others learn. It was a language tool that would promote communication, more specifically, communication through writing.


Turns out, many people are unable to write and spell even as a grown adult. So me and my two friends tried to make a model. It was a lot harder than that, and a lot more was achieved.


The entire project was filled with suspense. The deadline kept on changing due to pandemic (COVID-19) and it was for better or worse. We had more time to finish the project, but then again, we didn’t even know if we could showcase our project at that point. Would all of our hard work have meant nothing? Thankfully, it was not. It was a wonderful experience where we were able to showcase our project to hundreds of people, and teach them and make them aware about other people and how they learn, and how we can help.


Just the presenting wasn't the best experience to me. For me, it was the parts in between. So many times we would have to make decisions that would completely change the outcome, and many of those times, I didn’t really agree with what the majority wanted. I remember being frustrated and being unmotivated because of that. Not specifically because their ideas were bad, but because most of the time I felt like I was being shut out. I wasn’t. Through the experience, I learned that people have different opinions and points of view, and sometimes, it’s not that they’re not listening. They just really do strongly agree on something, and maybe, just maybe, it’s not them who's not listening, sometimes, it’s myself.


That was what I was seeing over and over again during the entire process, and I believe that it really taught me something important. That was to always be open-minded, because you never know, sometimes the people that you shut out, might have what you’re missing.
