We always want to find people who can inspire us. Being able to share your story with others and having the strength and courage to be honest with yourself can give inspiration to those around you. Today I had the opportunity to tell my life’s journey from China to Sweden for students from different countries at the Folkuniversitet of Skövde. When I saw the students I reminded myself when I came to Sweden for around 17 years ago, who could not so much Swedish and everything was new for me. In the beginning my greatest desire was to master the language and find a job. My story made me think about what I had gone through in my life, from my study and career in China to my professional life in Sweden and how I became an entrepreneur. It was a long journey with lots of challenges, joy and learning. By showing them that I was comfortable with myself and confident about whom I am, and at the same time being passionate about my work can hopefully provide an example for them. My greatest wish to them is to believe in themselves and determine a plan to achieve in their life while maintaining a positive outlook.
I really hope that my story inspired the students at the Folkuniversitet of Skövde. What I took with me today is a great joy and a good time to being with them. I am convinced that they will succeed in their new country for any challenges that may arise. It was a fantastic day!
