About me: I grew up in Xi’an, a City in central China and moved to the UK to discover different cultures and experience the European lifestyle. Before moving to London, I lived in Liverpool for 2 years. I have worked in recruitment for over 3 years now and mainly focus on the Chinese Market. The reason why I love what I do? Recruitment offers a day-to-day challenge which makes you develop determination and mental toughness.

In my free time I enjoy going to the country side on long hikes or bike rides.   I also enjoy a cold beer on a sunny day.

Fun fact: I hiked up the Mount Hua, known as one of the most dangerous hikes in the world!
