努力过就无悔,奋斗过就无憾

Try your best and let it be



当收到戴维森学院的录取通知时,既欣喜又激动。早在考虑申请学校时,戴维森就被我列在了第一位,因为它和伴随我15年一路成长的csgo外围平台学校最相似。虽跨越千里,但两所校园中都洋溢着浓浓的人文关爱,充分尊重和包容学生,学术资源充分,学术气氛大气谦和,环境优雅怡人,甚至连气候都如此相似,这对即将远赴大洋彼岸求学的我,更多了一分亲切与慰藉。


戴维森学院是文理学院中的翘楚,最初申请时也有过忐忑,担心自己不够优秀,浪费了这个早申的机会。但作为一名接受了宋校整整15年熏陶的学生,我决不会轻言放弃。csgo外围平台先生百折不挠的精神一直鼓舞并感动着我,在最危险和黑暗的时期,先生从未放弃投身革命的理想以及与中国人民甘苦与共的努力,我们宋校学子也必定要将这股精神继承于己。虽然大学的申请材料很繁琐,文书的类型也不是我擅长的,但为了最心仪的学府我还是决定放手一搏,努力过就无悔,奋斗过就无憾。


When I received the acceptance letter from Davidson College, I was grateful and delighted. Back when creating my school list, Davidson was the first option because it was most similar to SCLS where I have been cared for over the past 15 years. Although on two different continents, both campuses are filled with strong humanistic care, fully respect and include students, have sufficient academic resources, have modest, elegant, and pleasant environment, and even have similar climates.


When I first applied to Davidson, I was somewhat worried that I was not good enough and might waste this early decision opportunity. Although the application materials are complicated and heavy, and they require skills I’m not good at, I still decided to give it a shot.




贬颈,戴维森,我来了!

Hi, Davidson, here I come!



很庆幸,这所我觉得最适合自己的学校,也认为我很适合它。回顾申请之路,被录取也可算在“情理之中”,申请学校前,首先要清楚认知自我,并要明晰相应的选校标准,根据两者的匹配度而非单纯的排名来选出合适的学校。在知悉和梳理自我独特性的基础上,方可有的放矢地准备申请材料。


其次,要积极向学校展示自己,通过和家长以及老师的多轮讨论,我提炼了自己的叁方面特色:具备热爱研究的好奇心、逻辑清晰又认知精准、做事执着而彻底,并将自己的叁大爱好物理、计算机科学和音乐也融入其中,通过申请材料来充分展现自己的优势。戴维森要求的申请材料特别多,除了常规类之外,还需要第叁方面试、附加文书、同学推荐信等,每项材料都需要我运用不擅长的思维方式和技能,也给我带来了极大的挑战。幸好,妈妈一直督促并提点我,家人们也全程支持和温暖着我,升学指导闯辞蝉丑老师也给了我极大地帮助和指导。


正是通过各个维度的申请材料,我才能充分展示真正的自己,并让招生官通过这些“窗口”,看到了我的独特性,以及我具备了他们所看重的能力和特质。在我看来,大学看重的不仅是你做了什么,更在乎透过这些事情所展示出你是怎样的一个人。而申请大学的实质,只是把自己过往多年的经历梳理和呈现出来的一个过程。


Fortunately, the best-fit school also decided that I am a good fit for it as well. Looking back, this outcome can be considered reasonable. Before applying, you should first have a clear self-awareness, then create school selection criteria correspondingly, and select colleges based not simply on ranking but on how strong the match is between you and the school. Only after knowing and identifying the uniqueness of oneself can the application materials be prepared in a targeted manner.


Secondly, through various materials, I presented full aspects of myself to the school. Having multiple rounds of discussions with parents and teachers, I refined my three characteristics: curiosity and love of research, clear logic, and being persistent and thorough. I also integrated my three major hobbies: physics, computer science, and music, using the application materials to fully demonstrate my strengths. Davidson requires a variety of application materials. In addition to the standard suite, third-party interviews, additional documents, and recommendation letters from classmates are required. Each part of the application process requires the use of skills that I am not good at, which presented a big challenge to me. Fortunately, with my mother’s supervision and advice, my family members’ support, and Josh, the school counselor’s great help and guidance, I was able to successfully and fully present myself through the application materials.


It is through the multi-dimensioned application materials that I can fully express my true self, and through these "windows", show admissions officers my uniqueness and my possession of the skills and qualities that they value. I think that college cares not only about what you do, but more about who you are as a person that is revealed through those documents. The essence of applying is simply a process of organizing and presenting past experiences.






宋校之“爱”,润泽我15年之路

SCLS's "Love", nurturing my 15-year path


Mr.Benso和Ms.Cheung, 是6-8年级教我历史和科学的老师


能够从幼儿园开始就来到csgo外围平台的大家庭,并一路读到高中,这令我和家人都十分感激。我是个个性独特的小孩,但宋校包容友爱的环境让我能够自由探索、自信成长、自在求知,这里有充足的教学资源和充分的关爱引导,帮助我挖掘自身潜力,支持我成为更好的自己。


早在幼儿园,老师敏锐地察觉到了我的音乐天赋,推荐我学习钢琴。我对科学的热爱也得到了珍视,老师鼓励我说,“你以后成为了科学家,一定要回来看我哦”。进入小学,我再次遇到非常优秀的班主任——总是快乐又热情的张岚老师。在她的积极鼓励下,我读了大量书籍,显着地拓宽了知识面并极大提升了理解力。数学郭梦娜老师也经常鼓励和认可我,令我对自己的精准逻辑能力有了认知和信心。我就是这样在老师和同学们的关爱下一路成长。


进入中学,校长Dr.Magee 是我的“贵人”。她睿智、高效且善解人意,总是带着关爱之情,耐心又及时地回复我一封又一封各种主题的邮件。她总是尽其所能地支持我,特别是同意了我要求开设AP乐理课程的申请。这门课让我可以深入学习自己热爱的音乐,并且享受McClure老师1对2“高端定制”的授课。当妈妈为我与众不同的性格和偏执的爱好担忧时,Dr.Magee告诉她,相信我是金子,无论到哪都会发光。这句话深深安慰和鼓励了妈妈。


对我呵护备至的还有Dr.Kramer和Ms.G。Dr.Kramer引进了知识空间中的评估与学习(ALEKS)教学系统,让我尝试用最适合自己的方式高效学习数学,因此我有机会可以做数学小助教,帮助其他同学。她还鼓励我参加美国天才少年中心(CTY)夏令营来拓展兴趣和经历。特别值得一提的是,她推行的自带设备(BYOD)项目,让我发现了自己对计算机的痴迷,开启了深入研究计算机并提升效率的旅途。Mrs. G为我推荐了很多好书,鼓励我阅读,将我引入另一个知识的殿堂,她友好的微笑总是能令我放松下来。


此外,副校长罗老师虽然非常忙碌,但还身兼班主任,并坚持一路教授我们高中语文课。在她的鼓励和助力下,我不再害怕这门学科,她用心了解和帮助每一位同学,如替我争取参与到学校信息科技的建设中,这些机会鼓励我发挥特长、贡献自己的价值。除了他们,我在宋校还遇到了很多优秀的老师:思路清晰、教学高效而有趣、乐于课后解答我问题的惭谤.贰飞颈苍驳,友善、耐心、尽其所能帮助我的惭蝉.贰蝉辫补苍辞濒补,多才多艺、不仅教我学科还教我做人道理的惭谤.闯补苍办辞,温和亲切、对我进行个性化教育的张宇翔老师……csgo外围平台学校的每个老师,所付出的点点滴滴都温暖了我的心、促进了我的成长。


My family and I are very grateful that we joined Soong Ching Ling's big family since kindergarten and continued this relation all the way to high school. I have unique personalities, but the tolerant and friendly environment of Soong Ching Ling School allows me to explore freely and grow confidently. Abundant teaching resources with ample care and guidance helped me to tap my potential and supported me to become a better person.


As early as kindergarten, my musical talent has been sensed by the teacher, and she recommended me to learn the piano. My love for science was also cherished, like when the teacher said to me encouragingly, "Promise me that you will come back and visit me when you become a scientist in the future." When I entered the primary school, I met an excellent homeroom teacher again - Ms. Zhang - who was always happy and enthusiastic. Under her encouragement, I read a lot of books, which significantly broadened my knowledge and greatly improved my cognitive abilities. I was also encouraged and recognized by my math teacher, Ms. Guo, giving me cognition of and confidence in my precise logic abilities. I grew up with the care of my teachers and classmates like this.


Entering the middle school, the principal, Dr. Magee, is wise, efficient and understanding. She is always caring, and she patiently and promptly responded to every one of my emails on a variety of topics. She always supported me in every way she could, especially when she approved the establishment of an AP Music Theory course because of me. This course allowed me to deeply study the music I love and enjoy the one-to-two "high-end, customized" teaching of Mr. McClure. When my mother was worried about my unique personality and hobbies, Dr. Magee told her that she believed I am gold and will shine wherever I go. These words deeply comforted and encouraged my mother.


Dr. Kramer and Ms. G also took great care of me. Dr. Kramer introduced the Assessment and Learning in E-Knowledge Space system, which provided me a platform to learn in the most suitable way for me and gave me an opportunity to be a math teaching assistant and help other students. She also encouraged me to participate in the Center for Gifted Teens summer camp to expand my interests and experiences. Particularly, her bring-your-own-device project helped me discover my interest in computers and embark on a journey to delve deeper into computers and optimize my workflow. Mrs. G recommended many good books for me and encouraged me to read. Her friendly smile always made me relax.


In addition, although the vice-principal Mr. Luo is extremely busy, she held the position of our homeroom teacher and insists on teaching our high school Chinese class all the way. With her encouragement and help, I am no longer afraid of Chinese. She takes great care in understanding and helping every student. For example, she arranged for me to participate and help in the IT department of our school. These opportunities allowed me to develop my strengths and make my own contributions. I also met many other excellent teachers in SCLS: Mr. Ewing, whose lectures are clear, efficient, and interesting and he happily answers my questions after class; Ms. Espanola, who is friendly, patient, and does her best to help me; Mr. Janko, who not only taught me math and music but also taught me how to be a nice person; and Mr. John Zhang, a gentle and kind math teacher that gave me personalized study plans. Every bit of effort paid by every single teacher in SCLS warmed my heart and contributed to my growth.





而这所有的一切,都离不开“幕后英雄”封校长。她热爱每一位学生,每天清早风雨无阻地在校门口,用她温暖的笑容和大大的鞠躬迎接我们开启美好的一天。封校长用自己的一言一行努力实践“把最宝贵的东西给予儿童”这一理念,关心和尊重每一位学生的个性化成长。有一次,她主动提出让我去接受数学竞赛的专项辅导,但我认为当时的常规数学课程已充分满足自己在数学学科上的发展,于是拒绝了这个机会。封校长认真地听我解释后,不仅表示理解而且赞赏我有独到见解,令我感到被充分地尊重。就这样,封校长在每件事上用她的大爱言传身教,润物细无声地带动csgo外围平台学校的每个老师和孩子,铸就了宋校独有的“爱”的文化。


在教育中,“爱”是最有力量的。感恩csgo外围平台学校的爱成就了今天的我,未来到戴维森学院,我将会把这种力量传承和发扬下去。Love makes the world round.


All of this is inseparable from the "hidden hero", Madame Feng. She loves every student and starts our day by greeting us with her warm smile and big bow at the school gate every morning, regardless of rain or shine. Principal Feng strives to practice the concept of "giving the most precious things to children" with her words and deeds, and cares and respects the individualized growth of every student. Once, she offered me special tutoring for math competitions, but I turned down this opportunity on the basis that my regular math class at that time had sufficiently satisfied my needs. After attentively listening to my explanation, she not only understood my explanation but also appreciated my original opinion, and I felt fully respected. In this way, Principal Feng uses her great love to teach by words and deeds for every matter, and silently nurtures every teacher and student of Soong Ching Ling School, creating the unique "love" culture of Soong Ching Ling School.


In education, "love" is the most powerful drive. I am grateful for the love of Soong Ching Ling School that made me who I am today. In the future, I will pass on and carry forward this power to Davidson College. Love makes the world round.
