The harsh criticism is welcomed!Optional short essay (approximately 150 words): introduce yourself to Penn. Our aim is to better understand how your identity, talents, and background guide your day-to-day experiences.My family is the fountain of all my happiness. Both my parents are first generation college students in their families, and from them I have received the education I desire and the great care that I may never fully pay back. A Chinese saying goes, "one loves his parents by loving himself." Through the years, I am always striving to better myself. When I wake up to greet the morning sun I prepare myself for a day's work. When I crawled into my bed, I examine if I have lived a full day. While I was writing this essay, my mom handed me a bowl of hot milk and wraped a warm coat around my shoulders. Light steam rose from the white china bowl and blurred my computer screen. In the College, I will take the most challenging courses because I am confident of the gifts that my parents bestowed upon me. Away from my country, I will never indulge in loneliness because I have a family that I belong to, a family that I am responsible for.
