196512089I am Hongyue Su.You can call me Sue. I come from Changchun of the Jilin province in the northeast of China, which has similar weather to Stirling. Changchun is famous for cars and movies, and is one of the cities where more than 50% of the land covered by trees.

There are a lot of changes in the process of continuous learning. I stopped studying the electronic organ which I have practiced for 6 years, and table tennis which I practiced for 7 years. But there are still some things that do not change, such as reading books, watching movies and traveling. Now I love fitness in the gym. When I get left alone with strangers, I may be too shy to talk. I like to stay with friends, but also enjoy a personal time to do some of my favourite things.

In China, my undergraduate major was publishing, which I studied for 4 years. In recent years, the publishing industry has gradually become globalized, and certain books have been sought after by people. This makes me want to go abroad to study why books could be so magic.

I chose this major after serious consideration because my family members work in the publishing industry. They usually take the products home which were published in their companies. Not only is the study is full of the books, but also their whole home. Therefore I have a habit of reading which was cultivated by my parents since childhood. When I was young, publishing in China was not so simple. There was no Internet or dedicated publishing platforms, so a large number of people found it very difficult to publish their own articles. Every work has to go through a lot of editors’ selection and revision, in order to ensure the quality of books.

However, with the rapid development of the network, many people publish their own articles on the Internet or through a variety of communities. The form of publishing also changed, from the simple print books to e-books. An increasing amount of information is available to people: how to choose the good and useful one from so many books? It depends the work of editors.

Good editors can give people the same benefits as good teachers. They both can filter good knowledge and the article to share with more people from mass publication, so that readers can get useful knowledge meanwhile save money and time to learn more. That’s what I want to do. Maybe I prefer to read rather than write. Even though I write something like a diary occasionally, but it is not professional enough, I think I need to learn more about writing skills and make my articles more academic.

I hope that in this year, I can learn more knowledge from book and life, and can make friends from different countries. After seeing some different worlds and feeling the different life I can become a better me.
