About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Keep learning,keep positive thinking,making friends with good people.

ABOUT ME

A very easygoing person,would like to exchange good experiences or ideas about the wonderful world.My friends like to discribe me as a "unique man",who got independent thought,and admired friendship with lots of people.I think it's somehow because of my sincereness,keeping open-minded,and willing to understand others' thoughts,no matter how different thay are.

I have quite a few interests,from sports(basketball most),to music(light music&classic music),also I like reading a lot.And now,my biggest interest is about Internet innovation,so I became an Internet enterpreneur.Maybe one day you will be enjoying the website which I start.=)

PHILOSOPHY

Good attitude brings you a wonderful world.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spent 8 days as a member of the APEC YOUTH SCIENCE FESTIVAL(CAMP) when I was in high school,I met lots of friends from all over the world,who all have the great interests in different fields of science and inventions.Some of them became my very best friends in my life,including my partner,a girl from Taiwan,who are interested in Biological Sciences,and won the top prize for that Camp honorly.=)

Being a volunteer to the Tibetan area with high altitude(above 4500m averagely),where the town was totally damaged by a big earthquake there.We helped the Kids keep learning&playing in the temperary Tents,and rebuilt their classrooms there.It was just after the earthquake,the weather and living condition was tough for us,but we just enjoy the time with the children in need.When we leaved,most of the kids we taughti there were crying,and they sang the songs to see us off,that was an extremely touching moment,more than words to describe.
