Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

I am fascinated by the theoretical as well as the practical aspect of working in the finance field.  I am particularly enticed by the rigorous analysis that is required to make an impact in the financial world.

What makes you unique?

I like traveling and especially appreciate natural landscapes. I have traveled to almost every province in China and have a special taste for viewing natural plateaus.
