Transcript

Teacher: So, now you've got the important information, it's time to meet each other. Everyone turn to the people next to you and introduce yourselves.

Cara: So, hi. I'm Cara. And you are?

Robert: Robert.

Selim: Selim.

Cara: Nice to meet you!

Robert and Selim: You too.

Robert: Nice accent. Where are you from?

Cara: I'm from Glasgow.

Robert: Oh, really? My mum's from near Glasgow, so I'm half Scottish.

Cara: Cool. Do you live in Scotland?

Robert: No, we live in England, near Manchester. My dad's from there. What about you, Selim?

Selim: I'm from Leeds originally but I grew up near London.

Cara: Are you both doing history on its own?

Selim: No. I'm doing history and German.

Robert: I'm doing it with maths, actually.

Selim: History and maths. That's different!

Robert: Yeah, I couldn't decide between arts and sciences. Maths doesn't help with remembering dates, though! And you?

Cara: I'm doing history and French.

Selim: I wanted to do French but German was easier, so I took that.

Cara: German is so hard!

Science was my major throughout my study life. I used to love biology when I was in 10th grade. At that time I dreamed to become a doctor in future. But during university entrance exam, I couldn't place myself in any medical universities. So that, I admitted to a private university and studied computer science there. After that I completed by bachelor in engineering. I wasn't so good at math throughout my whole life. But engineering is a place where math heavy brain is necessary to become success. So, I started learning math & algorithm for coding. Now I really love to do math. Actually, life goes on its own way. We can't control every situation whatever happens to us. I think that, people need to be flexible and change their mind when they don't get success in any particular area. They can still choose another side of the road and do their best to go through as long as possible.

You're right! I think people should focus not only on achieving success, but also on the road that eads to it and the small steps along the way.

I'm so interested in science, especially biology. But I'm not good at math. I don't caculate the number easily. My brain can't work so fast.

When I was younger I loved studying Maths because I was smart with numbers, but when I grew up and went to university I preferred to study Sociology and Social work to help and advise disadvantaged adults and children around the world.

I like to know a little about everything. But history costs me a lot of work, the dates and the characters are complicated for me.
