I like traveling by taking different kinds of photos. I also like to record my daily life in the form of vlog. It means a lot to me.
In my Grade 10, I cycled around Taiwan with my schoolmates. It is a really interesting
and meaningful travel experience. We spent 12 days and the total length of the travel is 922 km. During the journey, we not only rode on the road, but also rode on the steep mountain. It was a big challenge for me at that time. Fortunately, I overcame the challenge and I gained a lot through this journey. I enjoyed lots of beautiful views and different kinds of Taiwanese food. I believe that it is a wonderful experience and I am so proud to say that I used to cycle around Taiwan when I was only 16 years old.
One of the main reasons why I chose to study at OSU is the OSU Marching Band. I saw a performance of the OSU Marching Band from YouTuBe. It is so shocking! I want to enjoy a live show of the Marching Band when I come to Columbus. In addition, I play the clarinet for 4 years. Clarinet is also an important music instrument in the Marching Band. So, I want to join the Marching Band in the future. My major is International Studies and I want to choose Journalism as my minor. I want to become an international journalist in the future.
