Where I live, about my family, and about my interests
My name is Tinghao Meng, and you can call me Ethan. Tianjin is the city I live in for 20 years. It’s a really great city with beautiful night view, and also a good place to enjoy your life. My mom and dad are both working in building trades, and they keep patience and put all efforts on me to make me a better man because I am the only child they got. My interests are soccer, cycling and games, so if you have same interests like me, we can play together. I usually played soccer longer than an hour after school during high school period, and got several medals in competitions. However, I was a little upset that I can’t go outside to have fun with my friends due to COVID-19.
Schools I went to and an interesting experience
I spent all my school period in China, including 2 years college life in Tianjin. One great thing about my high school was, teachers there were open mind and they made me think a lot. I even use the thinking schema till now, then the result is I made a transition to OSU. An interesting experience I think was, during the world cup in 2018. Because of time difference from Russia, the cup games played in the midnight in China. During the rest time between two games, my friends and I rode bikes all around the city, and we saw the beautiful views on buildings, river and all the things around our city in about 2 a.m. It was not alike what we usually saw. Later we ate BBQ and watching another exciting game that night. It is still one of the happiest memories I have had.
Reason to choose OSU and what I plan to study
I chose OSU because it has one of the best engineering school in the U.S, someone told me there are professional computers and portrait screens for students in engineering majors. Also, I heard OSU put great efforts on sports and they have honored performance on football in recent decades. For me, I like exercises and playing soccer usually. OSU loves sports, and I like sports, so I think we fit each other. I plan to study Computer Science and Engineering, because I think AI is really interesting that we can create plenty of amazing products like image classification, natural language processing, etc. I want to learn how to use syntax right and make amazing models to even put them on edge devices. As a result, I’m a buckeye in engineering school now.
