I was born in China. I took this picture when I was 2 years old. My childhood was pretty normal,
and that's because China was and still is a very peaceful country. I never had to worry about anything
besides school and after school programs.I was put in to a early development program that teaches kids
how to play musical instruments beginning at the age of 3. My instrument was violin. It was a nightmare.
Not only that I can barely read the music, but also I can barely understand why I had to learn to play
a musical instrument. My violin was made extra small for me when I was 3. It was fun, but bitter. The
benefit of the program was to help me develop my brain according to a study that the kids that knows
how to play a musical instrument score higher on the IQ exams.
This is me now. The long hair person in this pic. I'm attending John Jay College in midtown Manhattan. One more year to finish my BS degree.
