Canada – China Scholars Exchange Program Awardee (2012)

University of Ottawa (Business Management, visiting Scholar)

2012 was my most fortunate and happy time in my life. That year I was supported by the Canada – China Scholars Exchange Program (CCSEP) and realized my dream ever since 2003. The spring, summer, fall and winter enable me to truly experience Canada and fall deeply in love with the beautiful country.

On this land, all creatures live together in great harmony and peace. No matter where you are from, no matter who you are, people just treat each other very kindly. Fighting and war are no longer the way to solve disagreements here. Individualities are highly respected and commonalities are highly cherished. I definitely believe multiculturalism and the spirit of Canadian culture can save our world from wars and make our planet a real family.

Canada is abundant with natural resources, yet the Canadian people are thrifty with their resources. Canada never lacks impressive sceneries. I cycled all the way from spring to winter, through most streets and avenues, most parks in Ottawa, for exercising, for garage sales and for sceneries view. Riding on the bicycle paths in Ottawa is really an enjoyable experience and it is safe here.

Gertrude Stein, a famous American writer, once said, “America is my country and Paris is my hometown.” What I want to say is, China is my country and Ottawa is my hometown. I promise to work my hardest for the best of China and Canada. I will miss you Canada.
