Since I was a child, I have been an extremely persistent and meticulous person. My parents often refer to me as a "bulldog" because I never let go of my work unless it is done. Additionally, people around me would describe me "consistent" because I pursue work regardless of the hardship throughout the process.
For example, when I got into high school, I lighted my interest in mathematical studies. However, since I was not academically prepared for high school studies, I had a lot of work to catch up with my peers. Embarrassingly, I even had hard times completing homework on time. However, for the first few months of high school, as I reviewed elementary school and middle school math with my brother every day after school, I deliberately started to comprehend the materials taught in high school. As a result, my course marks gradually rose and I gained confidence in math classes. This did not only affect my academic excellence in math but also helped me establish a well-balanced studying habit after school. Furthermore, I decided to push myself even further, participating in the 2018 Euclid Mathematics Contest. I prepared for the contest by solving past contest questions and previous Olympiad questions at different perspectives from the official solutions. Consequently, I ranked in the top 25 percent of all competitors of the contest and received a certificate of recognition from the University of Waterloo. I am proud of this achievement since it reflects how much effort I put in.
