I genuinely enjoy working with Talent 100 for three reasons. The first two reasons go hand in hand. One, I like to teach. Teaching is learning and communicating. Two, the classroom environment at Talent 100 is what I believe to be an ideal environment for learning. The students come to learn, and I see a lot of mutual respect between teachers / Mentors and students alike. Three, the staff here are truly talented, and there is so much to learn from such a dedicated and knowledgeable group of people.
Currently undertaking a double Bachelors in Commerce and Law, Harry's accolades include the Pierre de Coubertin Award, the Merit Scholarship and the Oswald Chapman Memorial Prize. He loves basketball, watching movies, and is capable of eating two large pizzas. In one sitting!
His secrets to HSC success: Expose yourself to the amount of competition that you feel comfortable with. If you don't feel comfortable with it, remove competition from your study environment, by studying alone or with a couple of friends who are supportive. Study is also a habit. Find what motivates you to study and don't let it go.

2Be as competitive as you need. A lot of the time you might have friends or classmates who are very competitive. Expose yourself to the amount of competition that you feel comfortable with. If you do not feel comfortable with it, remove competition from your study environment. This might entail studying alone, or with just a couple of friends who are supportive.
3Be humble, and selfless. The more humble you are, the more willing you are to help others, the more others will act the same way to you.
4Study is a habit. Find what motivates you to study and don't let it go. Think about the long term rewards of studying now.
5Be honest with yourself. Be ready to make adjustments to your study routine. If you can identify areas of weakness, work on them. Don't pretend you have studied more or less than you actually have. Put in as much you can, and that will always be the best you could have done for yourself.
