I am a PhD student in the School of Computer Science and Technology of UCAS sponsored by the ANSO Scholarship for Young Talents. My supervisor is Professor Liú Yíng.

First of all, I congratulate all fellow students for joining this prestigious university and tell them that we are fortunate to have the opportunity to be admitted to UCAS.

The story of my interest in this university started when I was studying for my master's in Xi'an, the ancient capital of China. When I asked my Chinese friends about which universities they dreamed of joining in order to continue their studies, many of them answered that they dreamed of studying at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. So I searched for it and found that it is really one of the best universities.

According to the ESI report released in July 2020, UCAS ranked 67th globally, and 1st in China. This is what motivated me to plan to apply and join this university, I am proud now that I’ve got this golden opportunity.

Beijing is the capital of today’s most populated developing country in the world, China, which shares five thousand years’ civilization. And today it is bravely fighting the battle with the COVID-19 virus, manifested with the wisdom and responsibility of leadership, awareness, and solidarity of the Chinese people. We can study and live while feeling safe.

We, as new students, will do our best in educational and academic achievement. We will be the best representatives of our different countries from all over the world, and the best representative of the strength of Chinese relations with various countries of the world, relations of friendship and cooperation for a better world full of peace, coexistence and mutual respect.

Finally, I would like to thank the Chinese government and ANSO for supporting and helping students from different countries. And I reiterate my thanks to the university's administration and professors.

I wish everyone an academic year full of success and happiness.
