I live and study in a small town to the south of Jiangsu, and now I am a Senior 3 student. For long time, I’ve been dreaming of studying in a famous university in a big city, such as Beijing, Xi’an and Guangzhou. I often talk with my parent about my dream. But until now they haven’t been agreed with me. They always said that I am just a girl and the only child in the family, so you had better choose a university within the province. I can understand they will certainly feel alone if I leave them. But I really want to experience an exciting and complete different life. I don’t know how I can do to persuade them.
