Thanks for giving me this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Hanming and my English name is Jimmy. I come from a city with a big lake that is crossed by the longest river in China.
Our school has dedicated teachers and good education quality. All the time, I have been keeping good academic performance. As to my parents, they are both teachers who are working in the faculty of Foreign Language School of a key university in China. So I have a harmonious family and my parents are both strict with me.
In my spare time, I like playing basketball and listening to music. I am a member of the basketball team at school, and I normally play basketball twice a week because I think playing basketball can build my body and team spirit well. I also like making friends. I hope that we can become friends with each other. I’m easygoing and mature. Moreover, at home I am always glad to help my parents do housework as possible as I can. I am responsible for everything.
I’m excited about the American life, especially living with my host family, for I can have more chance to speak and take part in family activities. If I’m in trouble, I can talk with my host family to ask for some advice.
I will become more independent soon to adapt to the new environment by being active, communicating more with others, taking part in more interesting activities, seeking more chances to help others, study hard and so on.
This time, I decide to go to America as an exchange student because I like English and American history and culture and I want to learn more American culture and also bring Chinese Culture to Americans around me. Besides improving my English ability, of course, I can make some international friends during this time. I believe my American life will be enjoyable and colorful as long as I try to understand others, obey the rules and cooperate with teachers well.
In the future, I want to work in a big insurance company as an actuary to assess risks in insurance by utilizing mathematical and statistical knowledge. In hence, I plan to study in the field of actuarial science in university.
Finally, I sincerely thank you again! I do hope to be an exchange student and have a chance to share different culture with my new friends, new teachers & classmates, and host family in America. And bring the happiness to you all.
