About Myself

I am a Chinese-English interpreter and translator, in addition to my job as Sabbatical Officer at the University of Bath Students' Union (The SU Bath). I believe that I care about people and I try my best to be helpful.

I like everything natural.

Okay we'll leave it here. You can probably tell that I find it difficult to introduce myself properly.

Volunteering

Even if I am not good at something, I know I can find a way to participate. So, I simply put on my brave face and give it a go.

In any environment, there will be people who judge you, but more importantly, there are people who do not. Therefore, I am always grateful.

I have never been good at sport but I really enjoy watching and getting involved through volunteering.
