I was named by my grandpa. I had no idea what my name mean until I was
six years old. For me, it seems like a woman’s name because in Chinese it means
flourishing, beautiful and glorious. I don’t really like it, but it was the gift that my
grandpa gave me and I believe that my talent came from it.
When I attended high school, my name was like a daily joy. My chemistry
teacher always pronounced it incorrectly and my classmates always called me like the
Female idol WanYu Zhang. However, sometimes I think my name has some important
meaning for me. I like drawing and painting, and I want to be a graphic designer. I
believe that because of my name. I just feel like that. For now, I have a chance to
choose my English name. I want it to be name that has some important meaning and
A name is a special sign for each one. It directly affects our life. Even though
I don’t like my Chinese name, I won’t change it because I still cherish the gift that my
grandpa gave me.
