Na has always wanted to be “a people’s teacher”. She tutored student throughout her time at Beijing Normal University, where she completed her undergrad and graduate studies. She tells enthusiastically of participating in all the Yanxing activities, including lectures given by role models from business and community, inspirational speech trip to high schools and of course the spring outings with all four participating Beijing universities back in 2012. During the first half of 2014, she spent almost all her time preparing her graduation thesis and looking for a job, and in the process matured a lot. She now works at a middle school in Beijing teaching chemistry. This past year, she reports: “I learned how to get along with students, how to prepare lessons and a lot of things. I think I have progressed from a novice teacher became a qualified teacher”. She spends her free time doing yoga, taking walks and watching drama.
“The Qian Zheng Memorial Scholarship does not only gives us financial support but also gives us great encouragement. Every time when Yin Yin travels to China, she tries to gather us together. She would share with us her life and career experience. She provides great inspiration.”
