“As a student pursuing a Master of Science Degree, I see myself as a future Ecologist Engineer. I have
promoted this vision of mine in many ways, so far. I was a volunteer at ‘Green vegetal grows Red’
program for reforesting in Chingqing (representing Southwest University in 2011). The next year, I
volunteered with a Cotton production company for a half year in Beibei… Being a part of these
projects has been a blessing because I have had the chance to discover so much more and to be
supervised by distinguished professors in the research for restoring Qinghai/China Ecosystem and
many others at China Institute of Research and Geo Science. Once my research will be done, I will
then proudly execute a project to submit to the United Nations that will benefit countries affected by
Global warming.”
