One moment that changed you
It was the summer of 2012 when I met my inspirations. During my last week in China, my aunt tantalized me and my cousin, Terry, with a mysterious plan to take a walk around Shanghai. In the US, poverty is distant, plastered on billboards, cited as a statistic in congressional hearings. Buffered by these inaccurate representations of poverty, I was horrified to see poverty’s appalling effects on human lives firsthand when my aunt brought us to a row of dilapidated...

During a recess in elementary school, while observing the behavior of an earthworm outside of it’s natural habitat, the earthworm gave birth in my palm; it was better than anything on Discovery Channel. Today, I still crave a hands-on education. That’s why I look to Tufts University to quench my...

3. Sports, science, and society are filled with rules, theories, and laws like the Ninth Commandment, PV=nRT, Occam’s Razor, and The Law of Diminishing Returns. Three strikes and you’re out. In English, “I” before “E” except after “C.” Warm air rises. Pick any rule, theory, or law and explain its significance to you. (200-250 words) Newton’s third law- for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It's a law of physics, but it has also...
