- What’s your favorite number?
My favorite number is 100. One of the reasons why is because it represents full marks and straight A -academic excellence. Every time I get 100 points, I become more eager to learn new things. The other reason is it always reminds me of pure and perfect things without flaws. For example, if a beverage manufacturer uses the phrase 100% apple juice, it builds an honest and reliable image.
- Are you good at remembering phone numbers?
Not at all. I am bad at remembering long sequence of numbers not logically arranged. As I aspire to become an excellent interpreter, this becomes one of my major weaknesses. Because a person with good short-term memory can keep in mind more information and messages within a limited period of time.
- Do you usually use numbers?
Not really. As an English major, I haven’t used numbers since college, for English is one of a few majors that does not require the students to learn advanced math. So numbers are Greek to me.
- Are you good at math?
I know that there is an Asian stereotype that Chinese students are all good at math. But to be honest, my favorite subject is English and I hate math, especially Calculus, since kindergarten. And it is because of math that I didn’t choose science and technology as a major.
