I was fortunate enough to play Princess Moana in the opening drama “Ocean Wish” of the Oceania Carnival of our primary section. Everyone thinks that I am very similar to Princess Moana. In addition to my dark skin and naturally curly long hair, I also keep the curiosity to the world with a passionate personality.
Mother said that by learning foreign languages, you can understand the history and culture of other countries better. I once won the grand prize in the at the 2021 “Young Voice China Story” – a showcase of primary and secondary school students telling China stories in English. Besides English, I have been learning French since I was 4 years old. French and English have a lot in common, for example, 40% of the vocabulary in English comes from French. Although French grammar is more complicated than English, I can communicate freely with teachers from France in each class, and learn about different places of interests, geography, food and interesting stories in France through various classroom exercises and games with my friends. I hope that the pandemic may end as soon as possible, so I can travel to France with family and be their tour guide! Language is a tool and one of the most important parts of one country’s culture. I hope that on the basis of learning Chinese well, I can learn more languages, so that I can contribute to make the world to know China better, and China to know the world better.
In addition to learning foreign languages, I enjoy creating and making things by myself. Through the study of STEM, I have mastered how to use the combination of mechanical tools and electronic components and computer programming to make a lot of interesting toys. For example, I have designed and assembled radios, candy machines, pinball machines, etc. Recently, I also made a rideable and convertible electric suitcase. I can ride the “box” to my grandparents’ house and put the things needed in the suitcase, which is convenient and fun.
I especially like dancing. In addition to joining the school dance team, I am also studying ballet. I love the feeling of dancing to the music and sharing the joy by performing the various dance moves I learned to my family and friends. I will continue to work hard to learn a variety of skills related with stage performance, so that I can stand on a bigger stage in the future.
As the captain of the Young Pioneers, I do the work of the Young Pioneers seriously and responsibly, and assist the teachers to organize various Young Pioneers activities. I always keep in mind to be a role model on studying. After all, learning is our main task to get ready for the future. Only by mastering the basic knowledge and having the habit of continuous learning can we better meet the future challenges.
My dad said that in order to study and perform well, I must have a healthy body. Influenced by my father and brother since childhood, I participated in various sports. Swimming and tennis are sports that I have been practicing for many years. I remember when I was in kindergarten, my father and I participated in the parent-child skipping competition, and we won the first place in the school; I even jumped one more than my father, who is very athletic. I think doing sports is fascinating, and you can get a lot of joy while exercising!
Well, that’s all for the introduction. I am a girl, born to the sun, full of curiosity and enthusiasm for the world. In SUIS Wanyuan, a school that encourages diversified development, you can happily come into contact with many new things and learn new skills every day. Like my schoolmates, I am full of all kinds of beautiful visions of the future!
SUIS WY in My Eyes
Cai Zihuan hoped to grow up soon so that she could enter SUIS Wanyuan to study like her elder brother when she was a toddler. Her brother told her that studying in SUIS Wanyuan was the happiest thing. SUIS has advanced educational concepts and methods.

The school has spared no effort to create an environment and platform suitable for the development of primary school students’ comprehensive quality, cultivating their creativity and lifelong learning ability.
Zihuan in Teacher’s Eyes
Joy is a student who loves to learn, diligent and can endure hardships. She is versatile and expressive. Civilized and disciplined, as the captain, she is even more strict with herself, and seriously and responsibly assists the teacher in managing the class. She actively participated in various school activities, and played the leading role in musicals at carnival events, and her acting skills are infectious. She unites her classmates and helps others in the class. Respects everyone around her, she never neglects everything, never argues with others, and embraces everyone with her broad mind. She faces everything with her optimism and is never discouraged. Steady, thoughtful, and favored by teachers, she is always meticulous about her studies and strive for the best. She is able to learn complementary to classmates and gradually improve her grades.
I hope that in the future, with her strength and persistence, she will bear fruitful fruits and succeed in her studies on the soil sprinkled with sincere sweat!
