My UniExplore Story

I used to be a student at UniExplore, and hope I can help other new students!

My Experience

During my undergraduate study, I had an outstanding academic performance, such as the National Scholarship in China, Trek Excellence Scholarship (top 5%) from UBC, the Faculty of Forestry International Student Scholarship and so on. Due to my keen interest in exploring the life sciences, I worked as an undergraduate research assistant in different labs at BFU and UBC. These lab experiences strengthened my English communication skills, critical thinking, and time management abilities in addition to research skills. I also interned in some international and local organizations, and participated in many volunteer activities. Music, reading and travelling are my top three hobbies. I used to be the deputy head of the Symphony Orchestra at BFU, organizing and participating in many large competitions and performances. And I enjoy travelling to different countries to experience various cultures!
