Although I am an energic young boy, I think I am more mature than my peers in all aspects. In the eyes of my family, I am an independent, optimistic and efficient person. There was a lot of homework and exams every semester, but my parents never had to worry about my exam results. My friends think I am a humorous person. I often tell jokes to break the ice at the party, so my friends like me very much. Besides, my neighbors commented that I was a kind and polite young man. Because I never make noise to disturb my neighbors, and I sort the garbage according to the requirements of the community. I have a neighbor who is an old man and I take out the garbage for him from time to time. I have two things to be proud of. First of all, I recently participated in the high school math competition in Canada and got the top 25%, which encourages me a lot. It also proved that my efforts were rewarded. The other thing is, as a rookie in basketball, I helped my team win the 11th grade basketball league. To win the honor for the team, I feel more proud than to win the individual honor.
