The first time I came to China I was charmed by its glamorous cities, lovely gardens, views that take your breath away, amazing spectacles, temples and history behind it, delicious cuisine and warm people. Besides, one of the things that I admired the most of the Republic of China was the progress in terms of infrastructure and technological advances. But, why did I want to come to study here? Well because, I wanted to gain deeply understanding of the culture and learn new ways of doing things.
I consider myself as a part of the generation of women who is looking for new challenges, break stereotypes and achieve what is proposed. Therefore, I thought to study in China would be an excellent opportunity to obtain more and new knowledge throughout the doctoral’s program that would enhance my skills and competences in a path that, not only would open new opportunities but also would help me to grow as a better person and professionally. Likewise, what is for sure is that every day we are dealing with constant changes, that requires new knowledge and self-improvement, so, it is a must to gain deeper theoretical and practical knowledge, that in my case is, by exploring the exciting world of the accounting.

Besides, despite of been in the middle of Covid- 19, here at ZJSU, there is no time to get bored, there are plenty of extra-curricular activities to do. For instance, we have entrepreneurial competitions, food competitions, dancing training, Kung Fu online classes. We go to the gym and play ping pong, badminton and, billiard among others.
