Today, I am going to share with you the time when I was considering which university I would study and I received a good advice from my father.
My father told me that based on my ability and academic performance, I would probably good at subjects like economics or mathematics. He also told me that I should study what I am interested in, no matter what others think about my choice.
One more reason for his advice was that he was a business man, he had a lot of real experience about commercial field. He supposed that globalization was more and more popular, so he thought foreign economics would be the best choice for me at that time.
As a result, I decided to study in Foreign University, major in foreign economics, because I liked the subject and I know that I would be happy doing it.
In fact, I was very interested in economics at university when I studied it, because it involves many aspects of life, business and social factors.
Knowledge of economics not only give me countless opportunities in seeking job, but also helped me to progress rapidly in my career.
I was happy about my choice, and my father too.
