Hi everyone, I am a transfer student from the Diablo Valley College, which is located in Pleasant Hill, California. As most of you guys, I am majoring in Communication and this is just my second quarter in UCSD, which means I am still a Junior. I usually identified as a active, out-going person that addicted in every Sports.
Because of my father is the player in amateur football team, I had a chance to play football since I was a little kid. Also, because of my father, I was always jogging with him during the weekends. When I was in High School, I joined many school team, football, athletic, handball, cross-country and table-tennis. Although I had more achievements in different sport, my favorite had never changed. I love football. Because I like the way that communicate with the my teammates on the green field. I enjoy the moment that celebrate with the audience after the goal. It is just amazing. This is also a reason why football is the most famous sport in the world. But, after I came the United States, everything has changed.
I am an international Student, so English is not even my mother language. But what I believe is, Sport is always a common language that connect our world. I still remember that the first time I played soccer in my college field. And I noticed that football is not football in the United States during the conversation with my new friends. In most of the world, football is a common term to describe a Sport that use the foot to play it mostly. But in America, football is soccer. Football is a very famous Sport that make every American addicted to it, but soccer is not until David Beckham came. In the coming day, I want to think deeply to know how American fall in love with football instead of soccer. Moreover, I am willing to know more about the culture of American football which can help me to get more involvement to the US society.
