Qistina, IAG 2005 (Malaysia)

dearest adam,

HI!!!! my name is qistina and if my memory serves me right my last email to you was in august 2005, after my IAG camp that was held in Malaysia.i was 16 at that time and i moved forward with all the advices and encouragement i had received in camp. my classmate and i who was coaching during my stint in camp even used the tagline " if i can't, i must" as our class motto throughout our remaining highschool days. with all the lessons ive learnt, finally i have recieved an offer from my choice university to do law matriculation. it would have been a near impossible dream had i not experienced your amazing camp. the encouragement i received back then is still blazing in my mind. thank you very very very much!!!!!!!!

lots of love,

Xin Yi's Father. Mr Alfred Wong SK(SG, Mar06)

Hi Adam,

This is Alfred Wong from Prudential. Hope that you can remember me. I am writing to you as regards the above.

My three children had attended your superkids programme, the most recent being the just concluded programme in the March holidays.

All three had benefited from the programme and in particular my eldest daughter, Xin Yi had made the most significant improvement when she bagged the Father Barre award from her school(CHIJ Primary).

This award is given to the student who had made the most improvement in their studies since Primary one. I am very proud of that achievemnt and would like to credit you for giving her the motivation for this.

I am thinking of sending her for your assistant coach programme as I feel this would further develop her to be a leader and internalise all the things she had learnt from the course.

If you are agreeable to that, can you give me more details how to sign her up for that.

Once again, thank you so much for all the improvement to my kids' life and studies.

Best Regards,
Alfred Wong

Nan Naimah, IAG (Malaysia Dec04)

I have attended the I Am Gifted, So Are You!™ Camp and have tasted the benefits. I scored a string of A's in my SPM and my History teacher couldnt believe that I got an "A" for that subjct.

I am now attending matric college in Gopeng which will end at the end of April. I'll be on leave for about 2 months while seeking a place at a university. The Adam Khoo training is most friendly to teenagers, even problematic ones compared to other programs. Adam Khoo listens to the problems of teenagers. This is probably because the assistant coaches are young people who can relate to these people. It must be great being an instrument that brings changes in others. I would like to have that feeling. And I'm sure it will help me understand human beings better.

Thank you.

Jiansheng, IAG (Malaysia Dec06)

Hi webster its been a long time since the camp last year. I am Jiansheng, i joined the year end IAG last year and really enjoyed it at the same time i also learnt a lot of things about life. The trainers and coach really inspired me to strive for the best. After the program, my marks in my tests and exams have really improved especially my math.

i recently received a letter from AKLTG about the coach training program and was really excited about joining it but unfortunately the timing is inconvenient for me because it coincide with my first term exams.

I am in form five this year and really hope that i can attend the coach training program, can you please send me some of the schedule for the future programs so i can plan my schedule. I really hope that i can inspire others like the coaches and trainers have.

After the program i told all my friends what i have learned from the camp and they all said that they wished they could joined the camp.^^Are there any programs for the graduates to attend other than the quarterly meeting? can you send me any information regrading AKLTG

Shannon Xinru Yu, (IAG Malaysia) March 2006

Heeyyy guys!!!
My name is Shannon and i am currently one of the assistant coach(soon to be coach^^) for this, as you all already know, totally awesome, totally siaow and and totally SUUUPPEEERRR AKLTG Group~! XD What i LOVE most about this camp? Well, i have to say, the participants. Thats right, you guys out there who joined the camp.=) Needless to say, we all had fun right??? But thats not the main point. Before becoming part of this affiliation, i felt that, hey, life is nothing but a chance given to us by god to live, to do whatever we want, to live as the day passes. Thats true in a way, but do you know the true meaning of life?

Like Adam said, he quoted something like this,"Existing and living are two different things.

Existing is merely living in this world without an objective, without a goal; whereas living is actually doing something productive about your life, having and striving for things you want to achieve, having places you want to go. Stretching out and reaching for your goals..." The main point is, after this camp, we know what we want, at least i know what i want, i know where to start, i know what i should do and how i can get there.^_^ Do you?

It is ok for us to slack sometimes in life. We are all HUMAN. Yes. We are allowed to make mistakes, but should we repeat them? Hmmm... Ask yourself this question, how often do you think opportunity shows up at your doorstep in life? If we somehow knew about it, should we just let it pass and pretend it never happened? Lol. Those who havent been for this camp would probably do so, but for all those of you who did? ^^ What i learnt most from becoming part of all this is that life gives you only one chance to prove yourself.

To stand out from the crowd, to voice out confidently, to show the world who you really are no matter how small you might seem. It is to let us know that there is hope in everything we do. You guys showed me that. There are choices we can make that will change our lives forever! It has changed mine.^_^

So here, i just wanna say, thank you all. For those who have made a permenant impact on my life, for those i have been given a chance to be acquainted with through this program, to those who have worked with me and showed me what its like to be accepted, to those who have taught me that there is more to life than mere existance,and finally, to those who showed me life from a totally different aspect. I feel very grateful and blessed to have met you all in this lifetime. Now let us take this opportunity, this chance, this opened door to show the rest of the world who we are, what we can do, what difference we can make... Joining this camp has made the impossible, possible. So for those who have joined the camp before, please do come back to join us again! It is your turn now to change lives, to do miracles. So here, once again, thank you all very much for EVERYTHING. This has been the most chunted and unforgettable experience ever! It has become a part of my life, leaving behind memories so distinctive like footprints on a beach, making another chapter of my life evermore worthwhile...

Thanks you...


Lots of love,

Vikram Anil Shivdasan, ( SK Malaysia ) May 2006

I loved being at the SK camp.
Learnt a lot about myself and what i can do in life if i take charge. It helped me a lot to believe in myself and believe nobody is a faliure as long as we take charge. I would like to be a coach because the i could help other kids like me to think positive and feel more confident about themselves. We had learnt many words/sentences/values during the camp..i do know all of them, understood and put into practise few. This junior assistant coach scheme will give me a second chance to understand them better. Because when we teach other it will be like a revision for us. And best of all i get to attend the whole camp again. It will be fun.

Nur Ayne Faeza, ( IAG Malaysia ) June 05

I was really excited to get your letter as since I attended your cam, I really want to be a part of it again, this time, giving my knowledge for others to benefit. Since the camp, I found learning so much more fun and I try my best in everything I do. Now, being the secretary of my batch alumni, a school athlete, a main orchestra member, committee members of a few societies adn a straight A student, I am happier than ever and aspire to study in Cambridge University one day. It would be an honour to be chosen to teach other people to spread their wings and fly high as how you taught me. I promise to put my 100% effort and passion towards the camp and I promise that you wouldn't regret picking me! Thank you and I do hope to hear from you soon.

Vanessa Ho Li Lianne, (IAG Malaysia) June 2006

When I first attended the camp, I thought that it was just another motivational camp. During the duration of the camp, what really amazed me was the ability of the speakers and the coaches to motivate and change the lives and attitudes of everyone there and most importantly, inspire them. I was inspired and when I found out that I could come back to help coach, I immediately decided that I will come back because I want to inspire the fellow participants and also help them lead better and happier lives. AKLTG taught me many things both related to studies and life and so I would like pass it on to people.

Evelyn Wong, (IAG Malaysia) March 2006

Hello, I'm Evelyn Wong from the AKLTG camp held in Seremban last year (2006) from 11th till 13th March.
In part through using the methods and strategies learnt at AKLTG, I got
11As (10A1s and 1A2) for my SPM 2006.

I would just like to thank Mr. Khoo, Mr. Stuart and all of the coaches who helped me improve my self-confidence and sudy methods to achieve success.

I was quite sceptical when I first went to IAG Camp last year, having been enrolled in it by my dad without my knowledge. I didn't think that much could be done in only 4 days or so.

However, the camp surpassed my expectations. Although I have always been quite stable academically, I realised that there was much room for improvement in my life - not just academically but as a whole person. IAG Camp gave me the tools and knowledge to set my goals and achieve them. It helped me to build my confidence and motivated me to give my best in everything that I do. In addition, I learnt a lot about leadership through being assistant camp leader throughout my IAG camp.

Now, after scoring straight As in my SPM examination last year, I would like to contribute to another batch of new IAG campers and help them to reach their potential just like the coaches and trainers helped me during my time. It was their personal attention, advice and encouragement too that fired me up to improve my weaknesses and make a success of myself. I want to also be able to change someone's life like that - using the strategies and methods taught in IAG to bring out the full potential in someone.
Thank you.

Evelyn Wong

liyana, (school Program) 2006

hi Melvin

liyana here. You might not know which girl am i. but i hope this photo helps.

no words can describe how true and so great a role model you are to not only me but also to my classmates. you've opened the hearts of so many people. you the man! hahaha. =) on behalf of my classmates from 4e4 and a few from 4e3 too, i would like to thank you so much for everythg you've shared, every single tip you've taught, every tear you caused (which is a good thing 'cause you've opened our hearts and made us so wise), every second of your presence, every little patience you had with my notorious class and not forgetting, the laughter you brought. we really appreciate everything you've done! =)

the 3 days, i felt as though i have just undergone brainwashing. hahaha. but it had actually made me realize how lonely my mum is and the sacrifices she made. the course opened my eyes to all the possible consequences if i continue being who i was. i was so preoccupied with the duties i have to carry out in school being the president of CCA council, prefect, my CCA, my peers even come up telling me abt their problems. i was so pressurized that i made all these responsibilities more important than the thought for my own mother and my responsibilities at home. how blind and heartless i was. i must say, i miss my dad a lot. but aft the day he left and till now, i have nvr show. 'cause i use to think i mustn't show the emotional side of me. i must be strong in front of others. but i ended up crying myself to sleep for many nights. i felt really guilty and never felt so small and lonely.

hahhaha. but not only it brings tears, the course had definitely boost my willingness to study and to do extremely well. throughout this 16 years of living with promises to my mum, i have nvr really stick to my words. but now, i must prove myself wrong. and i must make mummy proud and live an easy life in the future. hahaha. =) i must and i will. heehe.

thanks yea melvin! your words i shall nvr forget. =) you are a role model to me and to many out there! hahahahaha. =) take care ok!


Tito, (school Program) 2003

Dear Adam Khoo,

(I’m taking this time in the middle of my study to tell u something. I wanted to share my story with u and Im sorry if its too long .I hope u read everything)

When i was in secondary 4 in 2003,I attended your program. I didn’t get the chance to let u notice me cause there was just too many other students. I’msure u don even know me. By the way I was in Serangoon Garden SecondarySchool. I want to compliment u that u have done such a wonderful job in inspiring me and the other students. I remembered u makes us cry and i remembered every detail like the rocky movie. That’s how u have make an impact in my life. I have never be so motivated in my life before and just like any other people out there, always hating my life. I would also like to say thateven though this is your job, I believe that u have done so much to make iteven more than a job. Infect feel that the way u carry on your job is not only unbelievable but also u have a great big heart, that is always trying toreach out to others and help us.

This is serious-I never passed my mathematics ever since I was in sec3.Everytest I did just make me even more miserable. But guess what, I passed in my o-level Maths. Even though I only get C5.But that was a great difference tome. That was such a memorable day in my life. And I also passed all my sixsubjects!!

However that was not e end of my happiness. Unfortunately, I went down again.I just wish that i don need to tell u this, but i think i lose nothing intelling the truth. After my O-levels, I began to work. That was when I was justnot interested to continue my study in POLY. I spend so much time working as a barmaid and waitress (even though I saved none after 3 years working on andoff!!!!!!EERRGGHHH!!!) that i just didn’t have time to do my projects and skipping school cause i was so tired working e day before.( i was in industrial design course and my homework consists of project after project)I forget everything that u taught me, i was getting discourage again and notmotivated. At that moment my mom was in Holland cause my dad is living in Netherlands. Because of that i took the opportunity to give 'Financialproblem' as a reason.

But that didn’t stop there! I was so scared of retuning to poly just to sign aletter to say that i quit. Not because im scared of the letter, infect i wasexpecting it. But its the fact that im scared of coming to sign the letterand to see my teachers’ scared how they will think of me. So it end up thati quit my poly just like that. No letters no nothing. And i took thatopportunity to tell my mom that i was blacklisted and couldn’t go to polyanymore cause that’s what i thought it would be. That is so stupid i know. I knowI can do anything like begging them to allow me to go back to school but i didn’t dare to cause if i go back to school, I would start all over again andi was shameful if the new batch of secondary students in poly see me. So Ididn’t want to go through that shame..

After one year of working, I’m just so tired. I wanted to study again. This timei apply myself in ite and of course they take me in, wondering what this polystudent is doing in ite.i taught i was so clever than the others. I joinednursing and I never failed to get top in most subjects in my class. Then after 6 months, its time to go to attachment. I hate it so much because I knownothing bout practical. I’m only good in theory but during practical lesson ialways end up daydreaming. So i was lost and always get scolded by the nurses. I didn’t enjoy it at all. Guess what’s the stupidest thing i ever did in my life??

One day I woke up late and i took an mc. The next day when i went to tan tockseng for attachment, I lost my wallet with my mc in it! I went home without no one seeing me. And since that day i didn’t turn up anymore. I quit once againwithout telling the teachers. They keep calling me but I was just gone, justlike that. All because I fear getting asked.

That all happen during 3 years. Now my friends have all gradated from poly Imjust so shameful and regretted myself.3 years gone just like that...........in Sept 2006,I moved to Netherlands, not because of running away but becausemy mom wants me to stay here for good. Ya my mom loves Netherlands and hatethe living in Singapore. Infect I didn’t want to go at all. I talk and talk butstill in e end i don’t know how i end up here.Now I’m taking 1 year of Dutch course. And i must pass to a level 4 Dutch before being able to go to poly here.

It was until this one night i was asking myself to look back what i havedone in life. I wanted so much to start a new, get motivated to study myDutch so i can get to poly. Those long taught that night end up in me remembering how i achieved that'"impossible o level'' and then i remembered that course i undergo by you.

I wanted so much to be motivated again. And so i went to look for your namein Google. It was an overwhelmed results. I read lots about u onceagain...Even though im living in Netherlands, I’m not rich, neither is my dadnor my mom. We are just normal people. Infect my family is struggling with meand my new arrival, like study and money etc. I don even get pocket money andi bring food to school everyday. That didn’t stop me from trying to reach you. I wanted SO SO MUCH to read your book and to learn all the secrets once again. I was thinking between the book '"í am gifted so are you" or Designyour destiny" In e end i was convinced to get your "design my destiny''book. I searched your book everywhere but unfortunately i didn’t see it here. Even if i saw i would buy cause seriously i don’t have money. So Guesswhat i do??? i called my bf (he's in spore and ya, we are having a longdistance relationship even 6months here, im glad) i told him to buy your book and after 2 weeks it arrive here. Unbelievable.

I am now reading your book with so much enthusiasm. Everyday i get soexcited and eager to continue reading. It change me once again and for e past1 week i didn’t get the chance to watch tv cause i was busy studying!!! Today i even went to swimming at 10.30 in e morning. I never exercise and i neverwake up in e morning. but this is like a big change for me. I will continueto motivate myself with the help of your book. I cant wait to finish it. Tillhere, thanks for taking your time to read this long story of mine. You’ve donea great job and its just incredible. I will do whatever actions to achieve mygoals. All the best and, success to you!!
