I’m a Chinese student currently studying at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Born into a Northeast Chinese and Cantonese migrant family in Shenzhen, China, I was influenced by the innovative environment since I was a young kid. My grandparents are retired Electronic Engineers, so I have been brought to the electronic parts markets in Huaqiang North every month at that time. As a result, I have learned a lot from them.

Later in about Year 8, I’ve learned Visual Basic 6.0, EPL and C# from my friends. From then on, I decided to be a Software Engineer in the future. After I left the high school and started my new life in Australia, I have improved my English and IT related skills from the University courses and my personal projects.
