One of my aspirations is to study perfectly in the college. 'Perfectly' does not mean perfect scores. I hope to pursue a rich and active college experience. Compared to other students, I'm not the most intellective one, but I always keep in mind that where there is a will, there is a way. I believe everyone is dissatisfied with his own fortune in some aspect or to some degree, and I am not an exception. I think graduating from high school is my opportunity and it pushed me to choose an excellent college. This helps me to lay a considerable and well-thought foundation for further development.

I was not good at communication when I first came to the U.S, but I gradually adapted and integrated into the school society. I willingly participate in various kind of extracurricular activities, and this has enriched my own amateurish life and opened up my own vision. I volunteered to be a tutor at the Santa Barbara central library. I teach kids and help them with their homework. At the beginning, my spoken English was poor, and I could hardly translate my thoughts into words. This was a tough challenge, but I enjoyed it. As children's tutor, I am responsible for leading them to find a method to finish their homework instead of providing answers. From this experience of helping others, I greatly improve fluency in English. In my opinion, Chinese education gave me a serious attitude toward every class. This …
