My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Career planning.

About me: I am a management graduate from University of Toronto. I began my career as a digital marketing manager in a Chinese education technology startup.

Before pursuing a Masters in Management at LBS, I was engaged in building my own team in marketing and operations, designing and exploring the business models to monetise internet traffic. I plan to make a career transition to the product management space, focusing on the topics of digital operations and transformation. As a previous chief editor of multiple influential WeChat official accounts, I have also been an expert in multimedia management and content management.

I find mentoring and networking with university students a meaningful and enjoyable experience. I love to discover the potential of my prospective colleagues and enjoy inspiring them to find a unique path of personal growth, especially for the students who aim to work in the sector of technology and diversified sectors.

In my spare time, I spend time updating my foodie blogs and watching movies (especially the genres of science fiction, history and documentary). I also pay attention to global issues and geopolitics.

Three topics I can be approached about: Product management; digital marketing; operations.
