What Do You Like Most About SIUE? It has a very good campus and location. I like that it is metropolitan and near St. Louis. I also like my department's research environment and how involved students are in research.

What Do You Find To Be the Biggest Difference Between the U.S. and Your Home Country? The diet in the U.S. is very different, as well as the political system and government. Houses here are big and there are less people. Also, I think Americans are very polite.

Interesting Facts About You: I can imitate other people's accents and pronunciations. I like to play soccer with my children and we speak Chinese at home.
