This paper is an application essay for readmission to the University of British Columbia, written by a Chinese immigrant to Canada. In it, he recounts the challenges he has had to face integrating himself, alone and without family nearby, into the fast-paced Canadian society. He explains why he was asked to leave the university the first time, the educational path he followed since then, and why now he feels more mature, focused, and ready to reapply.
From the Paper:"The most important thing that I gained from the college studying is that I found my field of study. When I was at UBC, I studied Food, Nutrition and Health in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems. I was thinking of studying Nutritional Science, but after one year at UBC, I knew I did not like it and did not fit into the program. That is one reason why I failed and was asked to leave. Since then, I have studied Geography at Langara College. I found this program fascinating. I can learn about the planet that we live on. I can study the world deeply. In my mind, I can travel around the globe without going literally. Because global warming is becoming a huge issue in Canada and in the world, I want to have more knowledge about it from the geographical point of view. I want to study something that I really want to understand."
