Late on the third day of March in 1992, I was delivered to the world under the full expectation of my parents. My advent added another member to my family, which then contains five members as total, including my father, mother, an older sister, grandmother and me. My father is a funny, wise man, who addresses his words of wisdom from time to time. My mother is featured as sensible and charitable, who donates a fixed sum of money to help orphans and people in need. Both of them are strict with me on the cultivation of moral values. Honesty, righteousness are emphasized here. My parents always expect me to be a caring, considerate and discriminating individual. They also set a physical good example in our daily life. Furthermore, they are accustomed to deliver their opinions on news reports and express their viewpoints on some social issues in order to let me judge one thing from more sides, not totally be swayed by the mass media. My parents’ teaching shapes me; love, nourishes me. It is in this background that I grow up to become who I am now. Then, who I am? My name is Huang Brighga.
While my parents define the essence of me, there are more other influences on my way to growing up. Born into a better-off family, I grow up without the bother of the lack of money, which is the result of my parents’ hard work: They were engaged in their job to keep a roof above us. Absolutely, the price is that they could not have much time to be with me. Therefore, early in my childhood, I have developed an interest in books. I am an avid reader, who reads a variety of books to widen my horizons and has an enormous, bottomless appetite for knowledge. Books have an immeasurable effect on shaping me. They serve as my teacher: They impart imagination to me, enable me to distinguish between right and wrong and provide me an access to knowing the world as a whole. Additionally, I learn something more outside the world of books. In the course of education, I learn teamwork through various competitions. Actually, I have always been passionate about participating in activities, whether sports or cultural. In my high school times, leadership became an important ability required when I acted as vice class leader, secretary or others. In university, I was honored to be the basketball team leader to compete for the freshman basketball trophy. All the experience combined leads me to where I am and gives me courage to move on.
However, why am I eager so much to be part of this meaningful activity? To be honest, I am not born with a yearning to get to know international affairs. Early in my adolescence, I focused much more on information about design, art, indigenous affairs and so forth. I did not shift my attention until I entered Kaohsiung girl’s senior high. There was a girl in our class who impressed me very much by her glittering confidence, amazing eloquence and her brilliant presentation performance. After we became friends, I found out she enjoyed foreign review magazine considerably. I thought it was the absorption in a large amount of information that made her stand out. From that moment on, I deliberately formed a habit of checking what is going on in the world by reading newspapers and magazines, which turned into an interest later on. To me, she is one of inspirations that helps me find what I am passionate for.
To sum up, I am a person whose belief is if I work hard, then at least I can win a fighting chance to be rewarded, whose core value lies in self-motivation which constantly drives me to challenge more, whose mission is to try my best to be committed to improving the world and whose vision is to be able to learn humbly in my whole lifetime. I always bear this quote in mind that no one can get out of this world alive. So, why not experience my life to the fullest and seize every chance to make me better? That is the very reason that prompts me to be writing this now. Hopefully, this biography can be impressive enough to win me an opportunity to take part in the activity.
