Scholar & World Citizen
“As an international student, I came to Trinity knowing I’d need to improve my English speaking skills to excel academically and socially. I was immediately immersed in school and have been able to take many academically challenging classes that focus on business. I am excited to continue my study in the U.S. at Rutgers University.”
On support at Trinity:
As an international student, I had some problems with English language during my sophomore year, but the teachers at Trinity were willing to help me to improve my English skills and solve my academic difficulties. There is no doubt that my English improved a lot during the academic years at Trinity. Plus, there were many sports I could participate in at Trinity. I participated in Track and Field, where I made lots of friends. In addition, I am glad that we learned economics in senior year because it helped me decide what I want to do in the future.
On reaching her goals:
When I first came to America, my goal was to improve my English quickly. Trinity helped me to reach it because I met my best friends and we communicated with each other in English. Recently, my goal is to study business, and Trinity provided economics classes which helped me to realize my interest in the subject. Trinity helped me to be self-disciplined and to establish good study habits for my future university and career work.
On her future:
When I applied to Rutgers University, I didn’t really know what I wanted to study, so I choose the School of Art and Science. After talking with my parents and friends, I think business would be the best choice for me. Therefore, I will try to earn good grades in order to transfer to Rutgers Business School. I would also like to join the dance club at the university. After college I plan to find an internship and work for maybe a year. After that I think I would like to return to China to help my parents’ career.
On what she’ll miss about Trinity:
I will miss the teachers who have taught me. I will miss the time I spent in high school, especially my friends and the House system.
