“I was a university English teacher before joining the Department of Chinese, Translation and Linguistics of CityU as a PhD student. I conducted research on translation under Dr ZHU Chunshen’s supervision. My education at CityU has literally reshaped my academic career ever since.
I was very much impressed at the top scholarship demonstrated by its international faculty, the liberal and encouraging environment for academic pursuit, the wonderful opportunities for research students to make a presence on the international scene, and the various professional supporting services and facilities. All these experiences set me on a path of seeking excellence.
I could still recall the extensive and inspiring discussions with my supervisor on selected research topics, the well-designed curricula, the eye-opening lectures of the Chinese Civilization Centre, my presentations at international conferences, and my participation in a UN Internship Program at its NY headquarters. Without these stimulating and rewarding experiences, my academic performance and vision would not have been in its current form.” (Nov 2013)
