What  career  would  I  pursue  and  why?      

What  career  would  you  pursue?  In  other  words,  what  do  you  want  to  be  

become  when  you  are  grown  up?  What  is  your  dream?  Questions  that  have  been   asked  consistently  throughout  my  life  and  yet  it  is  the  most  difficult  as  well  as  the   most  important  question  that  I  was  not  quite  sure  until  a  few  weeks  ago.      

Few  weeks  ago  on  newspaper,  I  read  an  article  introducing  about  a  

creative  director.  After  reading  the  article  and  ponder  through  many  years,  I   finally  made  up  my  mind  that  I  want  to  be  a  creative  director.  I  have  been  quite   confident  of  myself  that  I  usually  get  really  excited  when  I  deal  with  works  that   need  creativity.      

Partially  influenced  by  the  ‘Entertainment,  Media  and  Advertising’  unit  

during  the  second  semester  of  grade  11  English  class,  I  was  really  fascinated  by   the  powerful  impacts  of  advertisement  on  society.  All  things  considered,  I  really   wish  to  pursue  a  creative  director.

Article:    

Should  students  study  at  universities  in   their  own  countries?      

     


A  Step  toward  the  Future       By  Yeon  Jin  Park     Graduating  a  high  school  and  moving  to  a  university  is  deemed  a  huge  step  in  our   live.  It  is  a  step  closer  to  the  reality,  the  first  step  on  the  development  of  the   individual’s  independence  as  well  as  a  step  toward  the  one’s  future  career.     As  a  high  school  student,  deciding  university  can  be  troublesome  and   stressful.  Today,  there  are  myriad  of  choices  of  universities  available,  and  it  has   become  a  global  trend  to  for  many  college  students  to  venture  abroad.  According   to  the  Institute  of  International  Education,  the  numbers  of  students  studied   abroad  have  been  increasing  steadily.  Last  year,  the  number  exceeded  300,000   and  it  is  expected  to  continue.  Then  a  natural  question  that  will  rise  up  in  our   mind  is:  where  should  I  attend  a  university?  At  my  own  country  or  another?     Enrolling  in  foreign  university,  students  can  have  access  to  higher   educations.  It  not  only  builds  strong  individual  independence  but  also  helps   students  to  reach  a  wider,  more  diverse  population.  Depend  on  what  career  one   might  pursue  or  where  in  the  country  he  wants  to  work,  enrolling  university   abroad  reaps  huge  advantages.  For  instance,  a  student  who  wishes  to  study   English  may  prefer  to  be  educated  at  England  or  American  to  one’s  national   university.       Nevertheless  study  abroad  is  like  a  double-­‐edged  sword  that  while  there   are  benefits,  there  are  also  some  limitations.  The  three  most  common  problems   students  often  face  are:  culture,  finance,  and  safety.  When  students  enroll  in  a   foreign  university,  they  will  experience  a  different  culture.  While  this  offers  a   chance  to  absorb  new  culture  that  does  not  available  in  their  own  country,  yet  in   other  words,  it  means  a  cultural  barrier.  While  some  students  quickly  adapt  to   new  culture,  others  might  find  it  hard  and  struggle.  The  detrimental  side  is  that  it   will  be  depressing  when  what  suppose  to  be  voyage  of  discovery  turns  out  to  fail   as  one  finds  hard  to  immerse  oneself  in  the  local  culture.    


Including  the  cost  of  transportations  and  accommodation,  study  abroad  is   getting  more  expensive.  The  “convenient”  and  “safe”  places  remain  the  most   popular,  thus  the  price  remains  high  as  well.  This  not  only  burdens  the  parents  in   the  matter  of  financial  problem,  but  also  pressures  students  to  demonstrate  its   educational  value;  thereby  their  stress  level  increases.     “I  chose  to  study  at  American  university  since  the  they  have  highly   advanced  course  and  they  can  even  provide  job  for  the  graduate  students”  said   Angus  Cheng,  a  recent  graduate  of  Northeastern  University.  “I  often  missed  my   family  and  home,  I  did  not  get  along  with  new  environment  and  culture  at  the  first   time…”     All  things  considered,  studying  abroad  engenders  more  of  negative  sides  than  the   positive  sides.    However,  it  is  hard  to  say  that  everyone  has  the  same  outcome.   Everyone  has  different  personalities  and  therefore  their  adaptability  to  the  new   environment  and  culture  highly  depends  on  each  individual’s  capability.   Opportunities  always  multiply  around  us.  It  depends  whether  the  individual  seize   it  or  not.  People  have  tendency  to  think  that  valuable  things  are  always  far  away   from  them.  But  actually  they  are  not.  We  do  not  have  to  seek  treasure  from  far   away.  As  an  eminent  writer  Maurice  Maeterlinck  explicitly  stated,  “Remember,  the   bird  of  paradise  always  alights  on  our  heart.”
