Raphael Zhu (10th Grade)
Dear Family, I’m glad to introduce myself to you, and let you know me better. I come from Shanghai. My parents work as a procurators. My Chinese name is Zhiheng Zhu. Since it’s a little difficult to pronounce in English, you can call me Raphael as well. The name came from my favorite tennis player Raphael Nadal, which means I enjoy playing tennis. In addition to a sports fan, I am also keen on music, and can play the piano well. I think I’m an outgoing, easygoing person actually, and I have few requirements on living that I eat almost all kinds of food. I’m not the allergic constitution. I know every family has its own rules, and I should certainly obey it. I’m looking forward to being a member of your family, here is my email: email@example.com. You can contact me in detail later. Sincerely, Raphael Zhu
