Q: What was your worst Duke of Ed moment that you now look back on and laugh?
A: When I was on my exploration trip back in Beijing, I stayed in the
hotel. Because of the jet legging I woke up early one day morning. I played the
in my school band, and that morning I started playing the flute at
about 10am. Apparently one of my neighbours in another room
"reported" to the hotel
and I was called by phone to stop playing. I
felt intimidated because probably a lot of people were waken up by my music.
Q: What do you hope to accomplish in your term as a Duke Delegate?
A: To inspire more students to participate in Duke of E, encourage them to
explore the beauty of nature. I would also like to promote more students to
back to their community and improve upon their skills. I also hope that
more international students would join our Duke of Ed community. And at last I
want to tell everyone how fun the Duke of Ed is.
Q: What do you think of the qualities of a great Leader what comes to mind?
A: A great leader must have passion in what he/she does. With leadership
also come with the responsibilities to serve others. To be a leader also means
has to be dedicated to their job and is patient and confident. To
me, leadership means serving others wholeheartedly and being able to positively
inspire my community.
Q: What excites you about being a Duke Delegate?
A: The part that I am most passionate about in being a Duke Delegate is the
opportunity to socialize with others. The community is the best place for me to
learn more and communicate. Being the Duke Delegate, I will be able to meet more
people and learn about their perspectives.
Q: Can you give us one interesting fact about yourself?
A: I love piano playing and I have been playing the piano for almost 10
