I have an inseparable bond with Soong Ching Ling School. My short time away after graduating from kindergarten made me miss Soong Ching Ling School all the time. When I got the offer from SCLS Middle School, my strong intuition told me: I must come back; this should be the best place for me.
The middle school was new when I first joined; however, everything started to change after the arrival of Dr. Magee, the principal. She helped the middle school and high school to mature. The Engrade system allowed us to check our grades whenever we wanted, there was the renovation and expansion of the library, many diverse clubs, and many other things. I have grown and gained so much along with the development of Soong Ching Ling School.
SCLS creates a democratic and free learning environment for students, which fully respects individual student's development. This has given me more time to expand my hobbies, such as figure skating, vocal, and dancing, etc. From exploring, I found my passion towards sports and figure skating. The spirit of being tenacious and brave that I learned from sports had a significant impact on me.
In Grade 9 society study class, Mr. Hovey used his creative way of teaching to let me know how to reflect and think. He led us to investigate social problems, such as child labor, gender discrimination, etc. I found out that women face lots of inequalities. Meanwhile, lots of women encounter violence and unemployment, and girls have been deprived the right to learn.
As a well-educated teenage girl, I have the responsibility to convey the information about gender equality to millions of global Chinese speakers. Thus, I set up a website to focus on womens’rights, tell womens’stories, and explore womens’issues from the perspective of teenagers. There's still no country that has actually achieved complete gender equality. There is still a long way to go. We must work together for gender equality and pursue of justice.
I made a recommendation to UN Women to launch a Chinese version of its website, which will hopefully become the next official language launched on the UN Women website after English, French and Spanish. By opening this window of civilization to female Chinese speakers, they will be able to know and understand the work of UN Women more easily and participate more effectively in the projects and work processes organized by UN Women, so that the work of UN Women will gain a wider impact, increased efficiency, and better results.
这一切都离不开Mr. Hovey对我的鼓励，他建议我和闺蜜参加National History Day，让我对Christian Dior以及时尚的演变有了更多了解。
This can't leave without the encouragement from Mr. Hovey. He suggested that a friend and I participate in National History Day, which led me to understand about Christian Dior and fashion evolution. Meanwhile, I viewed lots of brilliant exhibits, which widened my horizon.
Sports grew up with me and I was lucky to find my hobby, figure skating, when I was 5 years old. I enjoyed the feeling of spinning and jumping on the ice. Skating is one of my ways to relax. Meanwhile, it has had a major impact on my life.
Standing on the podium can't leave without countless falls in training. The data shows that only after 9999 practices will lead to one success type of jump. When I was learning Flip, I practiced for a whole year before I landed it. When I was preparing for the competition, I trained until 10:00 p.m. every day, and I had to finish my schoolwork after the training. Although training is tiring, my passion towards figure skating always motivates me. No matter how hard it is, I never give up because of my pursuit to perform graceful jumping and spinning in the performance.

Since sportmanship started to impact me in childhood and the enthusiasm that students embrace toward frisbee, I was determined to start a frisbee team that would always belong to SCLS. As the manager of the frisbee team, I found an outstanding frisbee coach and asked my art classmates for help to design the team uniform and logo.
In the process of creating and managing the frisbee team, I gradually found a major that interested me. I love sports and enjoy the happiness that it brings to me. So, I hope to study sport management in college and dedicate my future career to the development of the sport industry in China. I would like to thank the school and all the staff for their trust. With your support, I was able to successfully create a varsity frisbee team and explore my future direction.
Time passed, along with the the ending of my application season, my busy but substantial high school life is near to the end. I learned a lot in the college application process because it provided me a chance to summarize my past 18 years and identify my future.
As you enter high school, you might think that college applications are still far away from you; however, every step you take is actually affecting your college applications. Grades from 9th grade will determine your future college rankings. Maybe you believe that a C or D doesn't make any differences now, but three years from now you might regret it and feel anxious. So, I recommend you to take your GPA seriously. Moreover, studying is not the only thing in life; after-school activities and clubs will also help your application immensely. Exploring and enriching yourself, don't waste your youth.
