Life is made up of an infinite number of choices and we need to make many life-changing decisions. Confronted with the options before us, we need to answer one very simple, yet important question: who am I? In order to live life to its fullest, it is crucial to find out our values, gifts, weaknesses and passions. I firmly believe that our vision should include not only our benefits, but also the benefits of the whole community. With this in mind, I have participated in different volunteer service programs, hoping to influence others positively. Now, I am serving as a volunteer tutor to assist students from disadvantaged backgrounds in their studies. It is encouraging to see the progress that my students have made. Helping others does not necessarily mean doing great things, and even our small contribution will make a big difference.
It is my honor to be part of the National Society of High School Scholars. I would like to thank NSHSS and A&F Co. for awarding me with this scholarship. Your generosity and recognition will encourage me to continue living my life’s purpose and achieve higher in the future.
