    Personal Statement
    Program: Civil Engineering
    I was born 23 years ago in a desolate small mountain village where there were only several rows of low and primitive huts constructed with cob bricks. But when I returned to my hometown recently, I found that the one-time mountain village has given way to a sizable town with modern facilities and utilities as a result of the on—going national campaign of urbanization. This is just one instance that illustrates the magic power of Civil Engineering in effecting radical social and economic changes. From the very outset, it is precisely this magic power of Civil Engineering that has fascinated me as a scientific discipline. As if to reinforce this fascination, I am fortunate enough to be the daughter of a father who is a senior engineer, whose professional influence contributed to my engineering orientation during my middle school days, which ultimately led me to the world of civil engineering into which not many women students are prepared to venture. By contrast, I am bent on a lifelong career in this field.
    A Chinese proverb says that “A towering building arises from the ground”(equivalent to the English idiom that “Great oaks from little acorn grows). As an ordinary young girl, my past intellectual pursuit is just like the process of constructing a towering building, laying a solid foundation, making sustained efforts to develop, and achieving final success. At the very outset of my undergraduate program, I formulated a plan for my academic development, outlining the objectives that I must achieve at different stages of the program. With due efforts, I have attained almost all of them. My academic performance is ranked top three in my class (consisting of 37 students) and top ten in the entire grade (consisting of 189 students). I am quite proud of my performance because the academic environment at XX University is highly competitive. Apart from my academic rankings, I have been awarded a spate of honors such as Outstanding Student and Outstanding Student Leader, as well as scholarships for three consecutive years. I concluded my undergraduate program with an Outstanding Graduate Award. Although I am not endowed with any extraordinary intelligence, my academic initiative and commitment has prepared for me a groundwork as firm as that of a towering building.
