Moment In Life


 I was born on 6 September 1980 in Bangkok, Thailand. The first two 
people that can describe me the best are my father and my mother. They 
told me that the first time they saw me they had the happiest time in 
their lives because I am the first son of them. They said that I was a 
curious and mischievous boy. 
When I was six years old, I entered Chulalongkorn University 
Demonstration school. In this school I was taught to be polite, 
responsible and loved in learning. I have made many friends in this 
school and I have had many experiences in this school, too. I was in a 
student council where I learnt how to work in a group in a democratic 
way. I was in a volleyball team. I got the certificate of merit from 
this school from 1992 to 1996. When I was in grade 11, I decided to go 
to study aboard because I think that now we live in a globalization and 
we all need to know other people in other countries in different culture 
so that we can help one another in the future. My mother and my father 
agree with me so they asked my aunt that which school in the United 
States is appropriate for me. My aunt told me that Cranbrook school is a 
good school in Michigan then I applied for Cranbrook. When I was 
accepted I am so glad because I can be near and take care of my sister 
who is now studying civil engineering in the University of Michigan 
attaining her Ph.D. Before I came here, I promise my mother and my 
father that I will never make them disappointed. Now I am in Cranbrook 
school, I have made many friends and I gained more experiences. I am the 
Residential Advisor of the dorm and also one of the leader in World 
Club. I am so happy to be here. In the future I want to be an engineer 
like my father and my sister so that I can help my father in his 
engineering company. 
I want to be a civil engineer because I like Calculus, Physic, 
Environmental Science, drawing and when I was young I always saw my 
father, working on his table, calculating his plan which was my first 
impression with engineering.  Now it is time for me to go for a higher 
education. I choose to apply for University of Michigan because I think 
that it is the most appropriated school for me; I can take care of my 
sister and she can help teaching me when I do not understand something 
in the class. I know that U of M is a terrific school of engineering. My 
sister tells me that U of M is a wonderful school for her and she is so 
proud of being a student in U of M. Now it is time for me to get that 
pride and feel it in the same way as my sister does. If I compared 
myself now, I would be like a boat that is near the shore waiting for 
someone to pull me up. And I know for sure that one should be the 
University of Michigan.
