My name is Gary Lee; a graduate of Washington State University Class of 2014. I have very strong school pride and love for my college town. Other than that I am just an ordinary university graduate like many of the young people out there.
I was born and raised in Hong Kong and left for the United States of America to continue my studies. Seattle, Washington the city I first landed in America amazed me and I found this city very beautiful. This is where I started to pursuit my American dream.
On the west coast it pretty much requires you to drive if you needed to go out. So it wasn’t too easy for me to do groceries shopping and hang around with friends before I got my first car. After all, everything went smooth and I successfully transferred to a college I wanted to get into, Washington State University.
In American culture, football is a very big thing. It is all about college football for us when the fall season comes. Washington State University has a division one football team and at every game the stadium is packed with diehard fans. I am one of them diehard fans that did not miss any home games throughout my college life. It was also one of my biggest entertainments waiting to go to the games every week. Going to college is the best time at this point of my life.
During breaks I would go visit my friends and uncle’s family in Los Angeles, California. It got so excited to reunite with them and food there are amazingly good. No matter if you are willing to spend a lot of money on food or find some fair priced ones, they are good. Road trips took an important part in my leisure time. I would just drive around with my friends and that is some memorable and quality time already.
With my total four years in the States, I would say America is really diverse and it really allows you to pursuit your own dreams. You just have to seize your chances and make everything counts. It is the land of the free and home of the brave.
