六年前，一个很伤心的人被诊断为双相情感障碍。在这段时间里，我第一次接触到心理学和精神疾病的研究。虽然当时我并不知道，但我对卡尔·罗杰斯(Carl Rogers)和亚伯拉罕·马斯洛(Abraham Maslow)的人文主义和动机理论特别感兴趣。与我产生共鸣的是，一个充实的人生源于追求个人独一无二的潜能。我同意个人的改变和成长只能通过自我探索和同理心来实现。这种个人的经历让我想成为一种改变的小工具，为那些在精神障碍上挣扎的人们提供更好的生活质量。我记得这个人患有双相障碍，她会有不切实际的梦想。特别是，我想更多地研究大脑和人类行为过程。我想要进行统计分析并记录我的发现，以便它对其他人也有用。我想专攻变态心理学，发展心理学和行为心理学。
Six years ago, a person close to my heart sadly diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It was during this time when I first exposed to the field of psychology and the study of mental illness. Though I did not know it at the time, I became particularly interested in the humanistic and motivational theories of Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow. What resonated with me was, this notion that a fulfilled life resulted from the quest to maximize one’s unique individual potential. I somewhat agree that personal change and growth can only come through self-exploration and empathy. This personal experience made me want to be a small instrument of change for the people who are struggling with mental disorders to have a better quality of life 。I remember this person who was suffering from bipolar where she would have unrealistic dreams. In particular, I want to study more about the mind and the human behavioural process. I want to conduct statistical analysis and document my findings so that it is useful for others as well. I want to specialize in abnormal psychology, developmental psychology and in behavioural psychology.
