I always wanted to be a doctor because I like science and I want to help people.
I am honored to apply for the Master of Library Science program at the University of Okoboji because as long as I can remember I have had a love affair with books. Since I was eleven I have known I wanted to be a librarian.
When I was eleven, my great-aunt Gretchen passed away and left me something that changed my life: a library of about five thousand books. Some of my best days were spent arranging and reading her books. Since then, I have wanted to be a librarian.
I got my first Lego Technic set from my father when I was a six-year-old child. Those interconnecting plastic rods and parts were magical to me. Mixed with imagination, those parts can be assembled into various electrical devices, such as a transformer, an automatic alarm, and more. It definitely opened my curiosity, brought me to a new world without limitations, and most importantly, ignited my passion for electrical engineering and innovation. I have been participating in junior engineering competition ever since. To further develop my passion, I became an Electrical Engineering student at Tsinghua university, and spent a lot of my free time doing research on engineering and innovation theory at innovation management labs.
