My name is Apinporn Sillapajarn. I was a sophomore student from Assumption University in Thailand. I was in between the summer before my sophomore’s year will be started, when I knew about the first scholarship of Jimei School’s Alumni club. So, I was interested in this great scholarship that will give me the opportunity to educate in Chinese language and my interesting major which is International Economy and Trade. Introduction of my background I am a Thai citizen with a little bit of Chinese lineage from my great grandfather.
Reflecting of My Experiences Throughout Introduction to Writing Reflecting of My Experiences Throughout Introduction to WritingThis semester was my very first semester as a student at the University of Maryland. Being the first, it was probably the semester I would 've learn the most in. I learned the Reflecting of My Experiences Throughout Introduction to Writing expectations for writing that I will have to live up to for the rest of my college career. Though myhigh school teachers were usually demanding, college writing raised the bar for me. In high school, we would have weeks to pick a topic, create a thesis, outline the paper, write the paper, and then revise the paper.
“What university do you want to go to?” The big question that all teens ask each other as they go through high school. Growing up, we are told to set our goals completely on university so that we can become “successful” or get a good paying career. While many may argue that university is simply a waste of money and time, I believe the opposite. Of course, university is very expensive and time-consuming but in the long run, it’s worth it. Many individuals don’t realize the education taught by universities is a big necessity and beneficial towards their own future.
Everything that I was wanting college to be like was starting to happen to me, and every bit of stress that I had diminished every day. When I finished my spring semester my GPA raised from a 1.8 to a 2.9 it wasn’t a huge leap but it was definitely progress. I gained multiple scholarships for the next semester of college because I got very involved with a program on campus that gives upcoming freshman tours of the college, and we get to tell the incoming freshman stories of our experiences and help them not have the same problems that we have had over the past year. I even got a position in my sorority and made my spring semester everything that I dreamed of it to
My first goal, for example, is to be a millionaire by the time I am twenty-five. I have already made a plan involving the stock market and studying business at a good college. I am already trying to teach myself to understand the stock market by using a demo account. The plan is to already be experienced at it by the time I am eighteen, at which point I can start properly. Both Odysseus and I work hard to reach our goals.
And when we entered Senior High, we were pressured to complete 200 hours of extra-curricular activities and sacrifice our precious free time, and maybe also money in order to finish it in one semester. The pressure on us students may be tough but you’d have to admit most of us here wouldn’t participate in these activities at all if it’s not required. Firstly, how we choose to spend our free time now plays an important role in shaping us for the
It was not usual to select country in South America as a destination for Thai students, yet, in that time, I fully believed that this dissimilarity would broaden my world and be beneficial for my future business advantage . Even though I skipped one year of high school spending my time abroad during the most crucial time in Thai high schoolers’ life preparing for college admission , I could achieve my goal and got accepted to the best engineering school in Thailand at the same time of my classmate. I must attribute this success to my early clear goal, strategic study plan and determination. I have received a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Thailand’s prestigious university , Chulalongkorn with GPA of 3.56, graduating in top 5% of the class. My engineering degree has given me not only the
Human development is a life-long and ongoing process, now that I am already a 20-year-old university student at CUHK, it may be the best time for me to review and trace my own personal growth and development. Not only that “the unexamined life is not worth living”, but more importantly as an adolescence as well as a university student, it is very important to trace what shapes up the current “me”, why am I like this now. Through this precious opportunity reviewing myself and self-exploration, I hope that I can make better decisions, as well as to review and (re)set my current goals and ultimately live a more productive life in the future by understanding myself even better, before moving on to the following life stages or social roles. To
The Tourist In this age, it has almost become custom for young adults to take a gap year between high school and college or after getting their degree. The 12 months serve as a much-needed breather, where you can prepare yourself both mentally and economically for a new stage in your life – whether it is going to college or becoming a part of the workforce. For many people, this involves travelling – especially countries of the Third World are popular destinations.

Will staying in a foreign country actually reveal a completely new part of your personality?
Right internship: Pathway to a great career “Start where you are. Use what you have.
