我很爱玩,不过我宁愿把人生黄金时段的玩乐时间,用来造就未来非凡的我。幸福学堂开启了我人生中的很多新起点,如果4年前的我遇到现在的自己,一定一定非常羡慕现在这个认真并且努力的我。
我是陈姚竹,1998年出生于贵州省贵阳市清镇市医院。

从出生那一刻起,我就成为一个大家族第四代成员中最大的孩子。

爸爸是仡佬族,虽然我的中考获得了少数民族加分,但还是小小的失利了——我没办法就读最喜欢的高中。

那段时间,自信灰飞烟灭,每天用运动来宣泄内心对自己的愤怒,并差一点放弃自己。

高一的寒假,我成为幸福学堂(现前进·幸福学堂)“元老级”的学生。最初的学堂只有我一个女孩,不过这并不影响我被弟弟们(比我年纪小的男同学)宠得不行,我很爱他们。

在学堂,我的阅读量和英语口语开始无限提升,这不但改变了我的性格——变得更加自信和开朗,还成就了在大学里对外国同学侃侃而谈的我。

我很荣幸成为学堂第一个毕业生,现如今就读于马来西亚林国荣创意科技大学(LIMKOKWING UNIVERSITY OF CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY)创意多媒体本科学士学位。

在大学,我开始体验住校生活,自学烘焙并分享成果,同时继续努力提高自己的英语水平。

我觉得有必要要解释一下我的专业,否则可能会有人会误解我学的是传媒,其实我学的是设计。创意多媒体是与游戏设计、3D设计等挂钩的新兴科技学科。更通俗易懂的说,我们的设计作品,大家可以从电子设备及其杂志等等媒介看到。这个专业很适合我也很挑战我——发散性的思维和头脑风暴让系主任对我的印象极为深刻,进专业第一天他记住了我“拗口”的中文名;挑战是因为我的绘画基础有些差(对,你们从我这篇专栏的摄影作品就看得出来),再加上设计类专业需要消耗大量时间和精力去做一个作品,所以这个专业的女孩子在学到一半就会选择转系或者转专业,所以这个专业的女生……比我在幸福学堂的时候好一点。

我现在的生活就是——上学、健身,对着电脑一坐就是6个小时,偶尔逛街。我很爱玩,不过我宁愿把人生黄金时段的玩乐时间,用来造就未来非凡的我。

我在贵阳已经生活了20年。

我最痴迷贵阳的夏天。对于一个热爱运动皮肤黑黑的女孩来说,贵阳的夏天便是我自带空调的大型体育馆。除了气候,我常常向马来人炫耀贵阳夏天的傍晚——是的,贵阳的夜生活从傍晚开始。

马来西亚是一个热带国家,大多数人信仰伊斯兰教,80%的道路为高速公路。

我就读大学的地理位置,是距离马来西亚首都吉隆坡半小时车程的雪兰莪州赛博城(Cyberjaya),一座才开发十年不到的新城(和贵阳的金阳新区差不多,不过没有那么繁华)。由于没有公交车,所以我们出行几乎就靠Uber。

我在国内和国外的生活就是,悠闲的贵阳人与匆忙的马来留学生。

我从小就非常急性子却很谨慎,活蹦乱跳又听话;热爱家庭,对朋友“侠肝义胆”并百分百的信任,所以吃过很多亏。不过没关系,幸福学堂开启了我人生中的很多新起点,我依然相信这是个美好世界。

如果4年前的我遇到现在的自己,一定一定非常羡慕现在这个认真并且努力的我。


I am Chen Yao Zhu
I am Chen Yao Zhu, I was born at 2: 00 p.m. on December 23rd 1998 at Qingzhen Hospital in Guiyang City, Guizhou Province. From that moment on, I became the oldest child of 4th generations in a big family. Because my father was a minority, I was honored to become the Gelao people in middle school. Love family, and friends can be described as “chivalrous,” 100% trust in people, but because of this I have suffered a lot of losses now. But it doesn’t matter, I still believe that the world is still beautiful, I have lived in Guiyang for 20 years. My favorite summer in Guiyang, for a love of sports dark skin for me, Guiyang summer is my own air-conditioned large gymnasium.It will always show off to the outsiders the evening of Guiyang’s summer – the night life begins.

The small defeat in the middle school made me unable to report to my favorite high school. During that time, my confidence and spirit were lost, and I almost gave up on myself. I became exposed to street culture. (skateboarding, I use extreme sports to vent my anger. During my winter vacation in my freshman year, I became a “senior” student in Xinfuxuetang school, and I was honored to be the first student to graduate from school. My reading and my spoken English began to improve infinitely, which made me become a good talker about books and my foreign classmates in college. The biggest change was my personality-becoming confident. I began to experience living in school, I began to bake by myself, to share the results with everyone, and I began to try to improve my English. I opened a lot of the beginning of my life in the school. I was the only girl in the school, but I was spoiled by the brothers in the school, I love them very much.

As we all know, Malaysia is a tropical country and has been colonized by Britain. Most Malays are Islamic on 80% of the roads for highways, and buses will only be many in Kuala Lumpur. We travel almost by Uber. I’m located in Cyberjaya, Selangor, Malaysia, a new city that has been developed for less than a decade (similar to the new district in Jinyang, Malaysia). But it’s not that busy. It’s half an hour’s drive to the capital, Kuala Lumpur. Now I’m studying at LIMKOKWING UNIVERSITY o, Lin Kwok wing university of creative science and technology, Malaysia F CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY’s Bachelor’s degree in Creative Multimedia. OK, I want to explain my major. Many people will misunderstand that I’m studying media, but I’m not, I’m studying design. Creative multimedia is a new science and technology subject linked to game design and 3D design. You can see our work in electronic devices and in magazines and so on. This major suits me and challenges me, first of all because my divergent mind and brainstorming impressed me so much that the dean of our department was very impressed with me. The first day of a major He memorized the Chinese name of my “mouthful” and challenged me because my painting foundation was a bit poor and the design major had to spend a lot of time and energy on making a work, which was a small number of girls. Many girls learn that half of them choose to switch departments or majors. So, my life now is school, fitness, sitting in front of the computer for 6 hours, occasionally shopping, I love to play. However, I would rather sacrifice the prime time of my life to create a future extraordinary me. In a sentence to sum up my life at home and abroad is, leisurely Guiyang people and hurried Malay students, four years ago I would have met the present In me, must envy now this serious and hard work of me.
