Let us listen to her story.

You received 4 university offers this year, all of which are top universities in the world. Why did you choose a university at that time?
I actually wanted to go to UCL (University College London) when I was in the second year of high school. It ranked eighth in the world this year. No matter its academic atmosphere or location, it has always attracted me. In addition, University of Edinburgh's learning environment and academic status is also great, and I also like it.
To be accepted by UCL, your academic score must be very high. Is there any learning method worth sharing?
In fact, it is what a student should do. Listen carefully in class, complete assignments seriously, prepare carefully for exams. There is no shortcut to study. As long as you study hard, there will be rewards. In fact, it is like the teacher requires，don't be lazy and read more. Also understand that learning is for yourself, not for parents and teachers. Learning is to enrich and expand yourself and be responsible for yourself.
Why did you choose to study economic statistics?
I studied economics and business in the 11th grade. They are closely related to future trends. Whether macro or micro, they are close to life and very interesting. At the same time, I am also very interested in mathematics. It can cultivate logical thinking. The economy is biased towards the liberal arts and mathematics is the science. I hope that I can study both the liberal arts and sciences, which will be more conducive to my own development. In addition, I participated in the business competition activities organized by the school, and achieved good results through the efforts of the team. I found that business is not boring. It is based on life. These theories can help me to better understand the problems of life.
What are your hobbies?
我的兴趣爱好比较广泛，比如piano,horse riding,sketch, painting, ballet, basketball, swimming, volunteer and community activities。我在业余时间主要做两件事，一件事就是去Adoption Day做志愿者，在宠物领养日上，帮助那些流浪猫和流浪狗由新的人来领养，帮助他们找到新的家庭。因为我从小就喜欢看动物科普书和纪录片，所以对这些比较感兴趣。这件事已经坚持了六七年了。另外一件就是健身，我有烦恼或者心情比较低落的时候，会通过健身放松自己，去重新面对困难，我觉得健身也会让人更自信。
My hobbies are relatively wide,such as piano,horse riding,sketch, painting, ballet, basketball, swimming, volunteer and community activities.In my spare time, I mainly do two things. One thing is to volunteer on Adoption Day. On pet adoption day, help those stray cats and stray dogs to be adopted by new people and help them find new families. I have been interested in animal science books and documentaries since I was a child. This matter has persisted for six or seven years.The other is fitness. When I have troubles or are in a low mood, I will relax myself and face the difficulties again. I think fitness will make you more confident.
Do you have any experiences to share when applying for school?
First of all, you must make clear what major you want to study, and then choose the school that suits you. You cannot blindly pursue rankings. Do your best to achieve the best. In addition, you can read more about professional books, or participate in activities to explore and find your own interests.
Who do you most want to thank for these achievements? What did they do for you?
The most important person that affects me is my parents. Since I was a child, my decision has been made by myself. They always respect my opinion, so I choose the school and country by myself. They encourage me to think for myself. When I hesitated, they all supported me unconditionally.In addition, I would like to thank my teachers in various disciplines, as well as Mrs. Hong, the guidance teacher. If I have any questions, she will patiently take the time to talk with me for a long time, always discussing the issues with me very seriously. When I am confused, she can also give me professional advice. My professional subject teachers are also very responsible, and I will be answered professionally when I ask them questions, such as Jin Beibei,Li Hui and Yu Huilin. Although Sun Hui is not my teacher, she will answer my question in time.
