"I wanted to get a liberal arts education instead of laser-focusing on biochemistry, which is what I intend to major in, but also get some knowledge about how to read, how to write, how to dance and write critiques about theater and to get a more well-rounded understanding of all kinds of academic disciplines, which is something that Chinese universities don't have."
