Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

I have a great desire to challenge myself, learn new things every single day, and to combine my strong educational background in finance with computer science.

What makes you unique?

Outside of studying, I translate subtitles with the Chelsea Football Club, for the popular Chinese social media site ‘Weibo’.  This work makes me feel energized and helps me maintain a good balance with academic life.
