Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

The financial market is always unpredictable and allows me to learn and grow as much as possible.  I am also passionate about understanding the delicate interplay and balance between risk and revenue.

What makes you unique?

I am a huge fan of football, watching over 50 matches per year. I love to analyze the tactics of both parties and create strategies for team improvement.

I also love reading books about Chinese history. I have learned a lot of life lessons from reading these books as they inspire me every day.
