In school life, the most interesting thing is to work with classmates to investigate and design a blockhouse around the city. Together we studied how to make this historical site of the fortress preserved while providing a space for outdoor recreation activities for people.

I participated in a marathon 'Jubileszowa' race in this city on March 10th 2018 as a volunteer of WROactiv. After gathering with the same volunteers and staff in the stadium, we went to the athlete's track to provide drinking water for athletes. Although the experience is hard, it is very meaningful. In the future, I will continue to actively participate in various student activities.

What is the best thing about your country or nationality?

Our country's internet finance is very developed. We only need a mobile phone to complete most of our lives, such as shopping, buying plane tickets or calling taxis . Our country has a vast land and different people. Of course I think Chinese cuisine is the best in the world.
