Extra-curricular activities

Beyond academic, I involved in mentoring, student leadership roles and volunteering.
Before I entered Australia in Sep 2017 for pursuing my PhD, I volunteered to teach kids (age from 6 to 15) in our community mathematics and English. It happened from 10th July to 15th August from the year of 2010 to 2017, six hours each working day. Student leadership role:
After I entered in Australia, I was a student representative in Melbourne Integrative Genomics (MIG). It happens from June 2018 to June 2019. I aim to solve every MIG PhD student’s problems. I took responsibility in collecting MIG PhD students’ feedback or suggestions and then reported to MIG group leaders in a monthly research committee meeting. Aside from this, I also helped organize the student afternoon tea in MIG so that PhD students could have a chat with seminar speakers on Fridays.
Since my living place belongs to one of destitute areas in China, majority of villagers in our community are struggling to make a living. Though I am not rich, my parents and I still help them. I also contribute my time to them each day for the year of 2020 and 2021. For instance, give the old a hand to have a video chat with their children far from home, make some cleaning, or just accompany them to enjoy the sunshine.
