My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Explore my motivation and career ambition

About me: I have worked as an investment analyst intern at Fosun Group Beijing Office, and have also completed an investment banking summer internship at China International Capital Corporation and an internship at Grant Thornton International. Aside from my work experience, I have initiated several student projects and polished my leadership skills, among them the award-winning Golden Straw, which aimed at preventing the wide spread straw burning in Beijing and helping the farmers economise the wasted materials of straw. I also have a strong interest in music and volunteering work, having taken part in opera and choir singing for over 10 years. Based on my previous experiences and interests, I am interested in investment banking and private equity industries in China.
