Senior Speeches

Jerry Hung

As I've learned more about coding, I no longer become frustrated when I encounter a problem, or as programmers call it: a bug. Instead, I started to get used to bugs. They are just a part of the process, and I treat them as a challenge - a way to improve myself. After looking at the code and approaching it in a different way, I often find a solution I would never have thought existed.

If there is one thing to take away from my speech let it be this: there will be times where things get challenging and it may seem like the end of the world but it is in those times you really find yourself and what you stand for. Those hard times also bring out the strongest versions of ourselves that are sometimes hidden deep down, when you discover that hidden warrior inside you, you can get through anything.

However, I have realized that knowing oneself is an important step in identifying and achieving your goals. If you don’t know who you are, you can’t know what you want to do with your life. As Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

"Can I run in life can I really do this race
Feeling like I chase and pace looking back at my past mistakes ( this is a great description of youth)
Never should of hesitated never should have waited
Should of done what’s on my mind then I would have already have made it
But now I’m playing off my senses
never mentioned or questioned
Just guessing that I already found my profession and that’s rap. "

To be empathetic is not only to be able to understand others’ feelings; it also requires us to respect them. If we could think from others’ point of view first, the chance for us to engage in any activity that might harm them will be decreased significantly. I strongly believe that if we all develop a more empathetic outlook, it will lead to a harmonious society.

Surprisingly, it was not that hard to assimilate into this new school. People are friendly, and the teachers are awesome. I got help from people whenever I needed. I am glad that I am able to attend RHP and I have made great new friends.

I believe you can always choose to be nice no matter what. Some people think being nice is weak, but I see it as a strength. You might come out bruised, scarred, and exhausted but it’ll show the world that nothing can change your attitude. In the end, nothing can bring you down if you don’t let it.

No matter what challenges I faced, my dad was always there by my side to make me stronger and I don’t know what I would do without him by my side. My advice for all of you is that no matter what you go through or what you're going through, you can make it through with the help of the people that love you.

Coach Will probably knew that I needed some guidance and that is why he came into my life and has influenced me so much. Sure I learned how to throw a baseball with pinpoint accuracy, read a pitcher to be able to steal a base, and how to hit home runs. But I also learned something more important: to be strong not only for yourself but for everyone who is around you. That is an attitude that I want to take with me for the rest of my life.

This experience really opened my eyes to just how privileged I was to be able to live in Hawaii and in Palos Verdes where it’s likely safe. I am so grateful that the experience actually shaped me into a wiser individual and now I am more careful and aware of my surroundings because of it. Looking back on it California was quite scary the first year I had moved but now that I’ve figured it out I’m quite comfortable and happy and ready to graduate.
