Four Short Answer Questions (family, club, song, why this college)

1. Describe a family characteristic
My father is very strict and persistent. He always mentions a Chinese old saying: Learn from extensive reading and act based on accumulation. He cautions me it is necessary to read extensively so as to lay a solid foundation for future development. Following his instruction, I keep a positive attitude toward my learning and works diligently. Currently, I keep straight A in my academic record for two years.

2. A club you want to organize
If possible, I will organize a club Food & Cooking, in which students from different countries can introduce their cuisine culture and we can hold a Gourmet Festival. I am also thinking of starting a magazine in which students can introduce their distinctive cuisine culture. Since I lived both in Japan and China and knew much about two cultures, I hosted a column in Xichi, our school magazine, to introduce Japanese society and culture, including food and cooking. I love cooking Chinese dishes and making Japanese sushi, and find everyone can enjoy themselves at table.

3. Which song to sing?
I would like to sing The Only One Flower in the World, a well-known Japanese song.
I am most impressed by its lyrics: 'You do not need to become No.1, because you are already the only one.' Each person has his own characteristics and personalities, and no two persons are the same. Each of us is just like an individual seed. We grow up and blossom as beautifully as we can.

Sometimes when I am exhausted or frustrated, I like listening to this song and even singing it to myself. Immersed in the melody, I adapt my mood, reflect on my deeds and confirm my resolution. One voice surges from my heart "Try your best and be yourself."

4. Why choose this college?
My father is a senior IT researcher. Under his influence, I have developed strong interest in computer science. Your university is famous for top-rated programs in computer science and applied math. I am sure I will benefit greatly if I can be luckily enrolled. My dream is to design a "fluid bio-computer" that can change shape, work with its BUS as cells, complete computing with cell groups, and transmit messages with its fluid.

I am also thinking of starting a magazine in which students can introduce the distinctive cuisines from their respective cultures.

I would like to sing "The Only One Flower in the World," a well-known Japanese song.

This part is very impressive:

amazing job!!!!!i really like tha part about the cultural magazine!!
And i think instead of using "your university" at the last paragraph, you should use the name of the school, in this case, New York University.

Yes its quite tedious to have to express your self in 500 characters and spaces. Fortunately, i was able to do it, although it did take me a while.
