What is your educational background? I studied in a 2+2 international exchange program for my undergraduate study. I studied in China for two years and in the United States for the other two years. I studied in China at College of Nankai University, and the American undergraduate university we cooperated with was St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.

Why did you choose this program? This program is consistent with my major, and I believe this major can help me have a better career development in the future.

What has been your favorite thing to do in Madison or what is your favorite part about living in Madison? I really enjoy the lake and boating in Madison. The temperature in Madison is very similar to my hometown Manzhouli, which is very cold, and it makes me feel like I am at home. Madison is very livable, especially with lots of cute dogs.

What has been your favorite class or what are you most looking forward to taking? My favorite course is Investment Theory and Practice because the teacher is very interesting, and I have an interest in Python.

What are your career aspirations? If there is an opportunity, I would like to find a short-term job in the United States to obtain working experience in an American company. Then I would like to return to China to find a job.
