What position do you hold at HHS Center? What led you to join their team?

I am a recruiter for HHS Center. I enjoy practicing my English speaking skills at work and I love meeting people from all over the world.

Most importantly, I want to introduce this amazing program to students globally and provide them with the opportunity to explore China.

What do you most enjoy about your role?

My major job is focusing on Human Resources. I enjoy speaking English with foreigners. My job in Human Resources combines both. I enjoy being the link that connects students to China.

What is your favorite story of a participant's experience with HHS Center?

One of the participants completed her program successfully and went back home.

One year later, she graduated from her university and came back to China to pursue a great job. She is still in contact with her host family and now they often go out together, like a family.

What do you think most sets HHS Center's programs apart?

It is not a typical “au pair job," but more of a culture exchange program. Host families treat the participants as part of the family, instead of as workers. Our participants worldwide are all friends with our HHS staff. Sometimes it is not like we are running a business. We are making win-win friendships.

What tips do you have for someone considering a work or study program in China?

It is really a great adventure to throw yourself into a totally different culture and environment, without knowing their language and staying with a local family to truly experience their daily life! Keep in mind that this is what you get. Adventuring in China is different and fun. HHS program makes it even more unique and fun!
