I love life so much that I want to enjoy every bit of it. Life is too precious to be wasted, and that’s why I strive to find out what makes me truly passionate, because I know that the knowledge of my true passion will direct me through life in a truly valuable way so that I enjoy every moment whether it be sweet or bitter at times. I believe that it’s my duty to be constantly in search until I find my real passion.
Like many, I came to college without having quite…Continue

In August of 1972 my father boarded an airplane for the first time in his life. He was an alone eighteen year old, did not know anything about the place he was going, and did not have anyone waiting for him at his destination. He was leaving India for the United States of America to attend a college he had never visited and could not really afford. Armed with a full scholarship and a small sum of money, he embarked on his journey with the hope of being able to build a life for…Continue

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12 NIV). Sometimes called the golden rule, it is one of the most known sayings/rules of our time, but what does it mean and how should I apply it to my daily life? Isn’t it just a silly rule that people reiterate to justify their actions?
These questions were constantly asked in the sermons I attended. I wanted to learn how to apply these verses to my daily life, but due to my family background and…Continue

I'm from a small community in Los Angeles. Of my 18 years of living, I have never encountered so many white people until I entered UCLA. I've always seen my world "colored". I grew up and am still growing up with a non-English speaking father whose idea of success for a girl, is still limited. So you see, my world is actually quite small, limited and biased. But even though my world is small, I travel to expand it.
When I traveled alone to China this past summer, I was…Continue

I have been to 6 schools in Hong Kong, 2 in USA and 1 in Singapore. As a child, I switched into and out of many schools because my parents were trying to put me into the best learning environment possible. I switched from local/public schools to international/private schools, from Chinese based to English based schools. Some schools I have only been to for half a year while others 5 years. I was often the transfer student of the class. When I enter a new school, people have already developed…Continue

My culture and family affect me a lot to identify myself. They are the reasons why I do what I do. My parents always tell me the eldest sister is like a mother figure. They expect me to be a role model towards my younger sister. I am also supposed to be the first person to obtain a bachelor’s degree in my family so my sister can follow within my footsteps towards her university applications. Therefore, my parents' standards of my role and…Continue

I do what I do because I feel that the world is desperate for me to do it. Unfortunately, I’m under the impression and believe that the world, and society more specifically, is on the verge of self-destruction. Throughout the course of my life and especially over the past 6-7 years, I’ve been learning that I have been blessed with the ability to influence people and truly make a difference in their lives through my use of…Continue

The abrupt rumble of the wheels prepared me once more for takeoff as I leaned back on my seat, waiting for that moment. I felt the rapid acceleration of the plane. Then suddenly, the rumble ceased and silence ensued. I was in the sky. Since my knowledge of its inception, the concept that a structure of such colossal mass could easily leave the ground has always stricken me with awe. The fact that science, through engineering, was capable of achieving such feat enlightened me to the endless…Continue
