My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Differentiating myself with potential candidates and finding my clear future career aspiration

About me: Born in Tianjin and raised in Beijing, I graduated from JLU in 2020 with a distinguished BA degree in economics. On campus, I was the IE&T programme student representative. Apart from that, I was also IR manager at AIESEC NST Group, through which I dedicated myself towards maintaining global exchange partnerships with Europe and EMEA. Over the past 3 years, I gained experience first in the finance sector; working at CreditEase became my career turning point, from which I realised my future interest lies in the tech industry. I then gained several in-house strategy internships at big tech companies like Bytedance, DiDi, and I’m still exploring my career interest. The best part of LBS for me is the strong connection and inclusiveness I experienced here from day one. I really enjoy sharing different perspectives with classmates from diversified academic and culture background. Apart from my professional interests. I enjoy jazz dancing and mountain-climbing. Finding local cuisines is also one of my happiest moments.

Three topics I can be approached about: Technology; strategy; career exploration
