Become independent and self-confident

I have personally grown so much in my time in Singapore. I didn’t even think that was possible in only 6 weeks, which, considering how fast it went by now, is a very short time. I’ve become very independent and self confident and I learned being on my own and getting by on my own, asking people for help. And I really like this version of myself that is so much less restricted by their own insecurities.
