To be a part of Wuhan University family is a dream which came true. Here, I am surrounded by excellent teachers, professors and students from all around the world. Every day you learn something new, acquire knowledge, meet new people, broaden your mind. I participated in plenty of activities organized by Wuhan university such as: “Experiencing China”, “Youth talent Forum”, “Model United Nations”, “Debate Competition”. All these activities motivated me to put more efforts to achieve my goals. As a president of Wuhan University Student’s union I have a strong belief that we have to create peaceful and harmonious environment so that every single student can bring their potential into full play and make their own contribution to Wuhan University. Our future success will be the best way to repay WUDA!
