I was born in a family closely connected with agricultural science. My great-grandfather is a pioneer overseas student in China. He was graduated from agricultural college of the University of Wisconsin with bachelor and master degrees. As a famous scholar in the Chinese agricultural field, he taught the science of dairy cattle in several agricultural universities and colleges and imparted the concept of saving China through dairy cattle during his teaching processes. My grandfather ever took office in Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences. The selenium project led by him has found the distributing situation of selenium in China, and made contributions to selenium supplement of the whole Chinese people. Due to his contributions, He was awarded the second prize of National Scientific and Technological Progress Award. My grandmother and uncle also work on jobs related to agricultural research. My childhood was spent in listening to work-related stories of my family.
When I learned the course of biology in junior high school, the knowledge educated by teachers was all what I had heard in my childhood. Along with the depth of the biology course, my interests in this course become stronger, and my academic performance in this course was also outstanding. As the knowledge in textbooks can not meet my demands, my grandfather recommended many interesting extra books to me. After class, I often went to wilderness or bushes of the western mountain, and sometimes spent one day collecting certain insect specimen. My interest can be drawn by various things there; no matter it is a deserted broken honeycomb or twitter of unknown birds.
As my grandfather is becoming older, he always told me that he hopes that I can take over my family’s agricultural research career. Shouldering the ardent expectation of my grandfather, I am determined to make achievements in the field of agricultural research, and become a person like my great-grandfather and grandfather who made contributions to agricultural research and the whole society. Therefore, I wish I can be a student majoring in biology at the undergraduate level and continue the research of agriculture at the graduate level.
