Yifei Xi, MLitt in Publishing Studies 2010-11

I’m a postgraduate student majoring in publishing studies at the University of Stirling in Scotland. My English name is Taylor. I came from Shanghai, China. My major was accounting when I was studying at Shanda University in Shanghai.

Then I came to the University of Stirling to change my major because I want to learn something I’m really interested in. More important, I hope I could find a job which I think is meaningful and suitable for me in my life. In addition, I’d like to mention that I’m really interested in traditional Chinese culture and education, because learning traditional Chinese culture can help us raise our moral standards and teach us how to get happiness in our life. I pay a lot attention to education including domestic education, school education, social education and self-education as well. And I found that publishing, espeacially children’s publishing, has a close relevance with education. If I become a staff member in a children’s publisher or an educational publisher, I would do as much as possible to consider what our publisher can do to benefit social education and what kinds of products we should choose to publish to benefit children’s growth, rather than only considering profit.
