My best and worst trait is insatiable curiosity, especially when it comes to electronic gadgets and PCs. I was the kid that rips open a brand new remote car to pull every component apart rather than playing with it. Over the years, I moved on to gutting PCs’ components, breaking some, and learning along the way. Later, I grew and graduated to dissecting and creating my own website and yet, my curiosity is still acute as ever.

After meeting with a few seniors from Purdue U, I am convinced that Purdue U will give me the best opportunity to succeed in becoming a computer engineer.
I hope to gain an edge with a university education that will not only provide me with the knowledge for my career but it will also allow me see from a different aspect of working with different people from various countries and stepping out from my comfort zone to learn something new while allowing me to grow. One of my lecturers said that Asians think differently from Americans and as a student, we must have an open mind and be exposed to a new culture, so we learn more and are adaptable to other views.
