“After graduating from university, I worked as a civil servant. I was good at writing and working very hard, and then I was gradually promoted…” Mr. Huang shared his personal experience with the audience in his speech “Spirit of Campus life and Choices of Life Path”. He gave the students helpful suggestions on career planning. Last year, Mr. Huang, in his fifties, facing many career choices, chose to work in higher education without hesitation. Apparently, this is a brand new area for him.

The American education ambience, a different management mode, and the bilingual working environment have all been challenging but attractive to Mr. Huang. When asked why he chose Wenzhou-Kean, he said, “I like to challenge myself. And I find I really love this work.” Although he is very busy, learning English is still on his daily to-do-list.

For these Ouhai students, this public speech did not end with inspiring stories. They have the option of studying at Wenzhou-Kean University: an American university with a beautiful campus and sophisticated facilities. They can pursue international education “at home” in the near future.
