Time with ILS
April 2012 to present
You have lived in China for most of your life, but spent more than 10 years in the UK, and some time in Hong Kong, before moving back to China full time. What did you enjoy most about living in these places and what do you love most about living China? It is interesting to see the differences in various cultures and societies.
My experience in the UK has shaped me to consider matters from a different perspective and it is often useful when dealing with issues that involve cultural differences to a certain extent. What I love most about living China is being closer to my family.
