  6. 6. <ul><li>When I was 20 I went to New York, on a university summer-abroad program. I wanted to improve my English. My first homework assignment was to write an essay with the “My identity.” The topic seemed vague so I asked the teacher what to write about. He said, “Well, I want you to explain who you are- where you are from, what you do, your hobbies. Most importantly, tell me your feelings about what’s important to you. What’s experiences in your life have affected you?” Following my teacher’s advice, I chose to write about when I started university in Japan. I felt lost and shy, but I decided that I wanted to be more popular than when I was in high school. So I tried to talk to people and I join the photography club. I also cut my hair and dress more fashionably. This taught me I could change my identity. I was very proud of that essay.
