Prompt 1: Why do you choose your anticipated academic area of study and NYU?
The elegance of mathematical logic and proofs has always held a real fascination for me. My passion in math prompts me to explore beyond the classroom. I have achieved commendable results in math Olympiads, done two math research papers, participated in the Stanford University Mathematics Camp last summer and founded the Math Circle with my friends. I find myself really enjoy the process of exploring math. It is great that NYU provides its students one of the best math education in the world.
Prompt 2: What does a 'global network university' mean to you?
In this world of globalization, the key to cooperation is mutual appreciation of different politics, economics and cultures. Having educated in China and Singapore, I look forward to realize my dream of being a global citizen in NYU. NYU offers its students various opportunities to study abroad, expose to different cultures and understand global issues. Being in one of the world's most culturally diverse universities, I will be able to have a global perspective and best contribute to society.
Prompt 3:Bring a person to a place significant to you. Who and why?
Despite China's rising affluence, poverty, corruption and crime are still great concerns which need to be tackled. I wish to spend a day with Bruce Wayne(Batman) in my hometown. He is not only a philanthropist, but also the one who has the courage to stand up against injustice and criminals. His incorruptibility and determination has greatly inspired me. I know it would be quixotic for me to change this world alone, but I hope to learn from him and try my best to make my hometown a better place.
