Kaili exudes positivity and considers herself very lucky: she and her older brother are both in university and her parents, who used to be farmers, moved to Beijing as migrant workers in order to stay close to their children. She has loved chemistry since taking the first class in middle school. After completing an internship at Ericsson during summer of 2014, she spent three weeks during summer of 2015 at Shenyang Aircraft Corporation to learn about production. She has finished her Masters and explored the path of becoming a teacher.She is now working for a distance education company, and working for better use of education resource through the Internet.
Outside of the academic realm, volunteers at various events and will lead the charge in organizing the first Qian Zheng Scholars volunteer project in fall of 2015. In addition she reports: “I planned and arranged the spring outing and summer outing of 2015 by myself, and there are many things I need to think about. I learned that only I myself is worth relying on in many cases, even though others can help me a lot.” Her diverse hobbies include reading, singing, sports, playing computer games.
“The Qian Zheng Memorial Scholarship has not only given me access to more material resources for study and living, but also a constant boost of self-confidence, particularly through the in-person meetings with its sponsors sharing life and career experience. Sometimes, I was bewildered by reality and worried that I was not good enough. After talking with sponsors and other scholars, I was energized again. I wouldn’t think it so important for a woman to have her own career if I were not part of the scholarship. In the Qian Zheng scholar community, there are excellent sponsors, friendly and lovely peers. It’s a group full of positive energy.”
If it weren’t for QZMS: “I would never attach such importance to my career and plan for my career life.”
