Experience: I’ve participated in a film festival in China 2 years ago and our group helped a young but talented female director to get investment for her script. This film was finally produced and released last year in China. And it became one of the most highly rated films last year and won a stunning box office. It was during COVID-19 and the whole market and filmmakers had spent a very hard time. Therefore, it is very significant for me.

Ideal Job in 10 Years: A producer of impactful entertainment content focusing on minority cultures to give voice to the voiceless.
