'In the autumn of 2011, when the sweet-scented osmanthus were already in full bloom, I came to Hangzhou. Living far away from home was a far-reaching experience in itself; and it was undeniable that China had a completely different culture. I had to adjust to the local culture and overcome language barriers, which in the end made my experience in Hangzhou all the more memorable. The experience was not merely learning about another culture, but more importantly, it allowed me to achieve a transformation of self-discovery.'
