“Cherish the moment now” is the motto of Cai Guoli, a girl with several scholarships and a first prize of a competitive translation competition. Many advantages guarantee her excellent performance.
Cai always shows her kindness to others in daily life due to her optimistic and cheerful manner, and puts the collective benefits first due to her strong sense of honor. All these good merits make her a highly qualified class leader. As the old saying goes: Every day I reflect upon three things. For Cai Guoli, self-reflection has long been an essential part of every day, which is the process of introspecting and re-introspecting and also the wisdom of getting along with herself.
Consequently, we have witnessed her achievements. Everyone may get honors once or twice, but in Cai’s eyes, honors will come and go and come. We’ve learned that only when you stand on the shoulder of giants, can you see farther. As put in a Chinese saying “In the company of two others, one can always find something to learn from them.” Similarly, what can we learn from Cai?
First of all, a good learning habit is essential. "Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today". We can't do everything in our life, but we can do much in our limited time without procrastination. Secondly, a plan must be proposed to pursue the progress. After a brief interview with Cai, she said that she would take many online academic lectures to enrich her professional learning and always summarize what she got by various tables. She also mentioned that she has been striving for perfection in what she was doing. Moreover, her family education also contributes to building up a good character, which leading to her outstanding achievements. She said that her parents stick her to a proper diet and a positive attitude since she was a little girl. They helped teach her to be generous to others whom she got along with. Life is short, but Cai hopes she could be useful and helpful.

When you just hurry on your way down in the dark focusing on your footsteps, you might as well look around for those excellent people.
