For example, I was the last who tried to keep one of my family pets, Yaomgi, a typical white Persian cat. What’s more, the fact that I was born as the last daughter often came as a big burden on me. To explain, if I did not well in my turn, my older sister would take a...

My friends and other acquaintances have always emphasized NYU has reputations for its great location as the mecca where contemporary global issues are born and spread all over the world. This is obvious, but kind of predictable.

Describe an example of your leadership experience in which you have positively influenced others, helped resolve disputes or contributed to group efforts over time.
For a period of 3 years at high school, I was elected as the class officer.

Supplemental Essay: Intellectual interest

I have hoped to join the English Education program of Steinhardt because of its unique interdisciplinary track combined with three academic fields – linguistics, literature, and education. That is, such integrated curriculum is the best-fitted academic model for my career plans to become an educational specialist who develops innovative pedagogical methods of teaching English language as a second language for Asian students.
