I want to talk about one student I know with an impressive academic performance. We were in the same class back in high school and we were desk mates for a whole semester. Stunning might it be, she is currently studying her PHD's degree in Cornell.
She is not that attractive in terms of appearance, but she is really adorable. She has a round face with a tiny mouth and sparkling eyes.
As for the personality, she is very sensitive and has a huge interest towards Chinese literature. She used to keep diary in high school and sometimes she shared her thoughts with me, which I felt quite inspiring. She is also very sociable and gets along pretty well with other people.
As far as I'm considered, her intelligence contributes mainly to her good performance in studies. I can still recall that every time we were doing some complex problems she could always figure out the best solution in the shortest time. On top of that, I believe that her own conscientiousness and persistent hard work have also played an essential part in her high scores.
