Hello guys, my name is Kong Xiangyuan, I am living in Linyi, Shandong, which is a time-honored city in eastern China. There are three members in my family: my parents and me. I am very interested in cars and other mechanics which started when I was a young boy. By which I mean that I always watch motorsports on TV and I am fond of collecting or making car models.
I have become a history lover for a long time and historical geography is my favorite subject. I always make historical maps by myself which fulfills me.
I am a sophomore at the Shandong University of Tech and my major is, of course, mechanical engineering. In the summer of 2019, I joined a research camp held by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and studied there for two weeks. The research topic is about high-speed trains and this summer camp let me know how exactly researchers and engineers work, which makes me like this major more.
When I was in the first year of college, I read a book about the aerodynamics of race cars. The book cited the images in the OSU wind tunnel. After that, I was immediately interested in the university and googled a lot of information about OSU. The beauty of the campus, the Ohio Stadium, and of course, the pride of buckeyes really attract me. Like I mentioned, being an automotive engineer is my dream and I want to make it come true which means the knowledge is very important. Furthermore, there is another reason that I want to get the experience of studying abroad. I am very interested in cultures, so I want to see the world. A study life and even work experience is the best way to experience a culture. I believe that the time spent studying abroad will become a period of time that I will never forget in my life.
