Hello, everybody! I am Yuan You, or you can call me Steven. I come from Shanghai, China. As a freshman of the Ohio State University, I am so excited by studying here.
My major is Physics because it is my favorite subject. Since I am an optimistic person, I attended some activities organized by upperclassmen from OSU and made many friends. Besides, some of them became my roommates. My roommates are all Chinese because I want to use this way to alleviate my homesickness and find some recognition of cultural identity.
Fortunately, I was born in a big city, Shanghai. So my senior high school life is colorful. There is a soccer field in my high school so almost all my classmates love soccer. Through my hard work, I was chosen to be in our school team and won 2 championships in my high school life through all team members’ hard work. My favorite soccer team is Real Madrid, and I went to Madrid, Spanish last summer. I visited El Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the host field of Real Madrid and took many photos, also I will see their match in live if they come to China, no matter how expensive the cost is , just because I love them.
Honestly, I chose the Ohio University not for its ranking, but for
its environment and weather. I do not like hot days so since Ohio is in the north of United States, the weather should be agreeable with me. From the Internet I found out that OSU is a very large college and buckeyes are friendly. Opening my eyes, training my English community skill and meeting more friends are my major reasons to go to college outside my country. In brief, I am looking forward to my life in OSU and am ready for welcoming my bright new unknown future.
