Number 3, the tours. I'm not usually a tour person, but the tours we went on this trip, were some that I'll never forget. Every tour we went to, there was always something that caught my eye. For example, the Warner Bros tour and the Universal Studios tour showed me many many sets of famous TV shows and Movies, and taught me some interesting behind the scenes stuff. Also, the Disney animation tour was also an amazing one too. It showed us what it was like working and creating an animation film and the awesome stuff you get to do as an animator. These tours were all so amazing and also taught me things that would be really helpful for media and if I had a film production career in the future.
Number 2, the STN competition. Being able to compete at this competition again was one of the best experiences of this trip. And if you read my STN blogs, you'll know Taylor and I didn't win anything. In fact, we were the only two in the class that didn't win anything. But guess what, that didn't erase the fact that we both knew we did our very best. Working with Taylor during the practices and the competition, was amazing. There is no better partner than her. When we turned in the flash drive in time, I saw a huge smile on her face and knew that we both did the best job we could. And although we didn't place, we learned that doing your best is all that matters. And that was all I asked for during that competition.
Finally, my number one moment on this trip was going to Disneyland with my CKTV Ohana. Going to California with the CKTV class is one of the best experiences I could ever have in my life. When we went to Disney, all I ever saw on my classmates faces were smiles because we all got to spend time together. During the trip, I saw that no one would ever be left behind or forgotten because that is what a family is. I enjoyed riding fun rides with everyone of my classmates at Disney. And the best part is at the end of the day, we learned we went to STN as a CKTV class, and came back home as a CKTV Ohana. And that is the best moment about this trip.
Again, there are many things I enjoyed about the trips but here are some of the best ones. Like I said, just being able to spend 11 days in California with an amazing bunch of friendly people was all I could every ask for.
