3. Being a part of ISKL community.
4. Having an opportunity to live in Malaysia
5. Experiencing different cultures.

Today in the last period of school, we met Ji Li Jiang, the author of the book "Red Scarf Girl." When she was in our age around 12 years old, she experienced the Cultural Revolution, which happened during 1966~1976. Cultural Revolution was one of the deadly events happened in China. People got tortured, killed and injured a lot. As a result, she wrote this book to show you what was going on at that time.
