Everyone is unique and one of a kind. The family backgrounds we are born with shape our personalities, choices and dreams. During my life, I have been deeply inspired by several milestones, and the most recent one, my year of 18, to a large degree, exhibits my preliminary cognition about future.
That year, I faced my life-turning point when I was in my high school. After I finished my junior school in China, and I came to Canada for further study, where I experience a distinct education system. Different from China, I bided farewells to endless tests and homework, refused to be the slave of mark. Instead, I focused on an all-round development: academic studies, community services, activities, and the improvement of personal qualities.
Academically, I am in much fond of mathematics and physics: my attention has been drawn by the rigorous logics of math, as well as the marvelous physics phenomena. As a result, I like to solve interesting challenges, and I’m also keen on exploring the mysteries of science. I achieved 25 % in the Euclid Math Contest held by University of Waterloo, which greatly motivated me to go further on the road of math.
On the activities side, I worked as a member of Diversity Committee to help organize weekly cultural festivals to encourage students to embrace different cultures in this multicultural Canada; I also joined Student Council and held big school events such as Spirit Week and Halloween Dance to promote school spirit. In addition, I took part in Model United Nations and debated on international politics and relations with delegates of other countries, which enhanced my concern about the world and eloquence. I enjoyed my extracurricular activities and made quite a number of similar-minded friends.
Moreover, my passion for community service motivated me to complete over 100 community hours in the past semester and won an award of “Distinction in Service”. Most importantly, I helped people in need through community service and shouldered responsibilities for my community, realized my personal value.
I found myself rapidly grow with the balanced life during
the three years in Canada, and has raised more expectations for my future, thanks to the education I have received. Simultaneously, I started to ponder：What is the true meaning of education？Why are we seeking higher education？I believe, education is far beyond the knowledge we have learned from textbooks. I have come crossed a sentence which I strongly agree：”Education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world”. Education develops a person’s perspective to look at the world. In the meantime, education brings us more chances to perceive the world, and to change the world. If we can apply what we have learned, to make the world better, we will thus realize the meaning of education.
Since then, the dream of being an educator has been planted in my heart like a seed, and I would like to devote my whole life into educational career. The passion for education and will to dedicate motivate me to pursue my dream. My biggest wish is to be a person useful to society, may not do down in history, but might be remembered in someone’s heart; on top of that, also to nurture more people who are useful to society.
Now, I am at the junction to further my education, as for the reason why I applied for this university, I have fully prepared myself for university studies, and I believe this university widely renowned to provide one of the best learning experiences and opportunities for future. Also, I will endeavor to repay the university and the society after.
