My creative side is seen in my modifying a car, through which I learned some useful skills. In China, where the government has clear rules against most car modifications, the car culture is very thin. Most of the time, cars serve us as a means of transportation, which is not seen from the perspective of a visual art. When I came to the United States, I found things are totally different–colorful cars are often seen speeding by. So in 2017 I bought a car, and that started my two-year process of car modification. During this long period, we ran up against lots of challenges. For example, XXXXXXX. To solve these problems, I XXXXX. We inserted a tiny chip into the onboard computer for analysis. When the modified car once again hit the road, it caused a sensation in the car circles, both in the United States and in China. As a Chinese in America, I XXXXXX. And I made some merches about my car and gave them to some kids, for they were the new generation representing the future. Through these online and offline activities, I’ve brought even closer the people in this field while altering the public stereotype about modified cars. A modified car is not necessarily one that roaring down the streets in deep night and speeding recklessly on motorways. Instead, modified car owners can, at each weekend, bringing along with them coffee, get together or meet their fans, communicating and sharing the pleasure of their time.
Stereotypes associated with car modifications include flaunting wealth, illegal behaviors, and aggressive driving. After coming to the U.S., I found that things were different. Out of curiosity, I bought a car and started this creative modification process. For an artistic appearance, I XXXXXX. I could have XXXXX. Abandoning traditional ways, I XXXXX. At that time, I saw XXXXXX. The whole process of modification lasted for another six months. When the car finally hit the road, it caused a sensation. Praise and accomplishments poured in. XXXXXXX Also, I wrote an article about the sweet and sorrows I underwent, posting it on a Chinese blog forum. XXXXXX Through both online and offline activities, I narrow the distance of people in this field.

Things to consider: If there’s a talent or skill that you’re proud of, this is the time to share it.

With many years of gradual self-cognition and growth, I get more and more familiar with myself. I believe that my talent is my preference for uniqueness and pursuit of a distinctive aesthetic taste. My talent is not inborn, but develops little by little in learning. As I grow up day after day, I XXXXX. Now, I have XXXXXX. When I was in the tenth grade, I XXXXXXX.
