I took CELBAN, first attempt I failed....I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing

Good afternoon Kim,
My name is R, I am one of your student… I would like to thank you for all your guidance and support in my writing. Though, I felt so bad whenever I check my writing [CELBANPrep Writing Level One] there were lots colours for corrections- but for this corrections I improved and felt confident in doing an incident report [CELBANPrep Writing Level Two]. Honestly, I took IELTS exam 3 times, unfortunately I didn’t meet the score that they were requiring me to reach. Then I took Celban, first attempt I failed. Somehow, you gave me a chance … from that point I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing. Luckily, I got a schedule … for CELBAN exam … and I pass the exam. Kim, you put a mark in achieving my nursing career here in Canada.

Thank you,
R

Dear R,

It is so good to hear from you! In reading your message I am so very happy! I am just sitting here with my laptop, smiling!

It may have been luck that you sat for the exam in September, but it was not luck that you passed the exam. You passed BECAUSE you practiced and practiced! You turned your weaknesses into strengths. You integrated feedback from your writing coach. You kept working on improving your grammar [CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials], and your skills in English in general.

Over time, and in seeing your dedication and hard work, I thoroughly enjoyed working with you! It is a pleasure to have been permitted to walk with you on your journeys to becoming a nurse in Canada!

In reading your message again your words ring out, “I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing.” This is the most wonderful thing to read and to know! I am so very impressed with your ability and desire to overcome your fear, and to gain self mastery and confidence as a result. Maximum performance on any exam can only happen when we gain enough skill and knowledge, which builds confidence, and battles fear and anxiety.

And you did it! Oh, ! I am so very very pleased. It truly has been an hounour! Please, please keep in touch and keep me informed about your path, your progress, and your struggles too!

You have the keys to success, and I know you will make it; you will obtain your dream of being a nurse in Canada. And when that day comes I will be overwhelmed with joy, remembering that I knew you would make it. While there are many IENs from across the world coming to or living in Canada, you have the special combination of skills, talents and character that will bring you success where others might fail.

All the best to you!

Sincerely,
Kim
