Tang Gong is a senior student of the school of architecture at Tsinghua University. She recently received graduate school offers from MIT, Harvard, Cornell, Yale, Duke, and Columbia Universities. Tang finally settled on MIT, with a full scholarship.

Tang Gong's mother is a teacher at an elementary school, and her father works in the media. According to them, there is no secret behind their daughter's success. "She was a playful kid, and she always has been," said Tang's mother. "I even allowed her to skip one of her mid-term exams because she did not want to go." Tang's parents let her go with her instincts. They allowed her to learn painting, dancing, electronic keyboard, and piano, all because Tang wanted to study these herself.

Tang Gong joked, "I am really not a studying person. But since I do not have a pretty face, it drives me to study every time I look at a mirror." "Study hard, play harder" has been Tang Gong's motto.
