Hi, I am Siqi, from China. To be honest, I would never have believed that I would be here in Stirling, studying publishing. I studied at the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication, and my major was digital publishing. Now, I still am able to study publishing in depth.

When speaking about why I chose the subject, I have to mention my hobby from kid to adult. Reading books has been one of my favorite hobbies all the time. Growing up, I was gradually curious about how a book is produced professionally and magically.

Fortunately, I systematically acquired knowledge about publishing, editing, communication and so forth in the four-year study at the university. And, luckily for me, I can continue to study and explore the field in University of Stirling which is a prestigious and beautiful campus. Studying abroad is a challenge for me, but I have a founding belief I can accept the challenge and overcome it. I know that improving myself and changing beyond myself is difficult but I want to try and challenge myself beyond what I’ve done before. There are kind of differences that I found studying in UK and in my country. For example, in the UK I have to manage my own time and tasks effectively. I need to read a great number of professional books and resources. Having entered several weeks of course, I have broadened my own view and enriched my knowledge in publishing industry. I have learned business model about how a publisher operates and had an unforgettable experience of visiting bookshops. I have learned preliminary research skills. I hope that I will improve my editorial ability and enhance critical thanking and analytical ability after one year. It is beneficial to my employment in the future.

All in all, after graduation, I completely look forward to do related-publishing jobs in China, even abroad.
