To start a conversation with me, ask me: About meditation, Buddhism or Taoism. I practice meditation every day, and do exercises such as playing ping pong, broadcast gymnastics and walking with my family at sunset.

Why I'm interested in global health: It is my pleasure to be a part of Duke Global Health Institute, to devote myself to improving health of people in the whole world, especially children in developing countries.
