Please see below, student reflection from Year 10 Student Angel Li:

Human library was very enjoyable as I was able to talk with Uyen. We talked about her life, how hard it is to balance out training and life, what pushed her to go through the martial arts path and about university life. I'd say that my highlight of the conversation was how she pushed herself to do something she loved even though there were times she was scared and how in martial arts, she builds trust around her. I sometimes hold back on doing what i want, Uyen has encouraged me to take the path i think I'll enjoy and love. i might pick up martial arts again too!
