In China, education is so important, and so is selecting a university. In Shanghai the links to the city of Liverpool are magnetic. The history, The Beatles. However the nerves of doing something so frightening, to move away meant I was undecided.


It’s the fear of the unknown, the fear of making a mistake, but ultimately it all comes to trusting your heart.


Through the tough times, the settling in period, learning a new language and the challenges life presents - I am happy. I met a boy on the plane to Liverpool, who decided to study in the same place. 10 years later we are married.


Dreams do come true, when you have the courage to overcome fear!
