George School is a Quaker school, here I began to become a Quaker. I also joined the basketball and track team there. I was the captain of the basketball team! Because of that position I started to make more friends than I had in military school. I was very proud of that. Before I came to the United States to study I thought it was hard for me to make friends because I could hardly speak any English and now I could speak it fluently and that was my goal for studying in the United States.
Even though I have already fulfilled by goal, I decided to earn a degree in the States. I am planning to major in business. Since I heard Indiana University has a great business program, I applied and they accepted me with a scholarship as long as I could keep 3.0 GPA or above. The beginning of college life was wonderful. I got 4 A's and one B- in the first semester mid- term. Unfortunately, my roommate suddenly committed suicide in November. Then I began to suffer from depression. I just did not want to do anything. I could not sleep. I felt tired, sometimes I even felt scared. Then my grades started to decline, which made my average GPA 2.5 in first year at IU. At first, I mistakenly thought Indiana University advisers would give me advice, tell me more about what had happened, comfort me, and do what they have to do to calm me. Disappointingly, school faculty did not do a single thing about his death, and they took away my scholarship because I no longer received a 3.0 or above GPA average. It is almost a year now, I am totally recovered and I will prove 2.5 GPA average is not what I deserved.
