What is your favorite thing about being a student at UIS? My favorite thing about being a student at UIS is UIS provides us with a very good learning environment to achieve a higher level of education. In addition, diversity is also one of the things that attracts me. It’s really nice to meet people from different countries and get to know more about different cultures.
What are your goals for the semester? I have several goals for the semester. One of my goals is going through all classes with good grades, hopefully straight A’s. In addition, managing my time properly and avoiding late nights. Last but not least, working out!
If there were a reality TV show of your life, what would it be called? Why? It would be called “Journey”. Because I am an international student, and I’ve been in United States since I graduated from high school. I have experienced different lifestyles and have seen different scenery, which is more like a journey to me.
Are you involved in any clubs/activities/sports on campus? Or what are your hobbies? I am involved in two clubs on campus. I am a treasurer of the International Student Association, and I am also a president of the Asian Student Organization. I like reading novels, watching movies, and listening to music in my spare time. My favorite music type is Nu Jazz.
What have you learned since working at the library? I have learned a lot since working at the library. I learned how to manage time and how to balance work and life. I will list all to-do’s on my list and finish the daily tasks step by step, which is very clear and helps release a lot of stress for me. In addition, I also learned that communication is the most important key to work as a part of a team.
What are your post-graduation plans? I am planning to attempt a master’s degree program and go on to earn a graduate degree. I can accumulate working experience while taking graduate courses. After that, I want to find a job which is related to marketing.
What is your favorite item from the library collection? The Ice cream maker.
