Reflection (Week 4) #weekly

Do I have stories of migration to share (personal, from friends, family, own reading, etc.)? What is that story and what are my thoughts?

One of my friends in secondary school had migrated from Thailand and had been studying in Singapore for a few years from primary school and to Secondary 2. She was staying in a rented flat with a guardian and with other people who had also migrated to Singapore to study. She migrated again to New Zealand after completing secondary 2. The reason why she migrated was because the education in Singapore was better than in Thailand and also the fact that her family was rich. My thoughts on this is that indeed I have to agree that the Singapore education system is quite good however very stressful at the same time. Migration is also a good thing as it helps develop a person as an individual. By having to manage all her money, work and life alone my friend managed to be a more independent individual.
