Looking Forward

Today all of the Ivy league Connection students from Hercules High had to introduce themsevles to the city council. And as expected, all went well. My first interest in Yale was when my family visited one of my cousins who was attending Yale then. From then on I was impressed with the school. I am extremely excited for having this wonderful opporutunity to go the Yale summer program. I am sure I will have a great time. Next blog will probably be on Thursday or Friday after the dinner which I am also looking forward to.



  1. Henry,

    Thanks for taking the time to share your reflections with us.

    I thought you all did a splendid job in front of the Council on Tuesday night.

    You're so very fortunate to have such a wide support base to help you. Between your parents, your school teachers and administrators, your City Council and the community as a whole, you'd really have to work hard not to succeed at Yale.

    I invite, your parents and the other Yalies to check out this outstanding video clip made by and for Yale. It's titled "Why I Chose Yale." and can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGn3-RW8Ajk

    Aside from being informative, it's also amusing and entertaining at the same time.

  2. Sorry that I missed the speech. I hope that I have a chance to read it in the future.

    I appreciate your hard work.

    Take care.
