Please join the China alumni LinkedIn group where I will post details of the WeChat group I will be setting up, so that we can get together for drinks, meals and outings to events we all want to go and do together.

About me:
Cass is a place full of challenges, the kind and professional teachers, nice classmates, exciting events and the opportunities all give me many great memories. The best is probably the great team work with real estate club students to prepare the Cass Real Estate Conference.

I love nothing better than travelling around the world. I love both the natural scenery and cultural heritage, to experience and understand cultures and lifestyle in different parts of the world.
