The scientist I admire most is Albert Einstein who changed the way we understand the universe. In the year Nineteen-Oh-Five, Albert Einstein published some important papers in a German scientific magazine, including one of the most important scientific documents in history. Albert Einstein's theories of relativity are about the basic ideas we use to describe natural happenings. They are about time, space, mass, movement, and gravity. This theory offered new ideas about gravity and the close relationship between matter and energy. Besides his scientific achievements, he was a simple man in life and showed an inner joy when he was playing his violin or talking about his work. That's why I admire him most.
The athlete I like most is Liu Xiang who is one of the most famous athletes in China. He not only won Gold medal at the Athens Olympics but also keeps the world record. He sets a good example to indicate that persistence and hard working make perfect. His spirits encourage lots of young people in our country. Furthermore, he is a kind-hearted person as well. He has donated his precious track shoes to charity foundations. So，because of these contributions and good characters, I regard Liu Xiang as my favorite athlete.
My mother has influenced me greatly in the past years. Since she suffered from an incurable disease more than twenty years ago and was told that this disease may cause greater pain than cancer could. But she held a positive attitude towards life and always told me that we should not yield to disasters in life but to strive for hope and spare no effort to realize our dream. Her perseverance and determination have told me what true bravery is and stimulated me to pursue my goal and cherish what we have. That's why I regard my mother as the most important/influential person in my life.
The teacher who influences me most is my teacher of Architecture history because she changed my attitude towards designing. She is an excellent designer with a great passion for architecture and teaching. In addition, she respects our individual understanding of the distinctive styles in history and encourages us to pursue our own way of learning and designing. As my tutor, she gives me advice not only on my design work but also on the difficulties I meet in school life. Besides, she is an easy-going person so we always have discussions freely. During the years on the campus, I gradually formed my new ideas of design, passion, and independent thinking. That's why I think she is the best teacher.
