Hi, everyone! We are Mai & Huizhi and we are the Chinese International ambassadors here at UEA. 


Hi everyone✨ I am Mai, the Chinese Student Ambassador for this academic year. I am currently in the final year of my BSc in Environmental Science at UEA. This is my second year in Norwich and still keen to explore the city, Norwich surprises me every now and then! The sights and food I stumbled upon have become great memories XD
In my free time, I enjoy travelling and hiking, nature has a magical power to relax me and I always get a lot of energy from it. If you're interested in any outdoor sports, feel free to share them with me, I'm always happy to try new things :) Also, crafts and baking are fun for me, I'm recently trying bookbinding and making cakes, total newbie but full of passion, if you have any recipes that you love, feel free to tell me too.
Studying in a new country is a very courageous thing to do and can be challenging at first, which I fully understand. If you have any questions about things like campus life at UEA and life in the UK, feel free to chat to me on the UEA 'Ask a Student' platform. I am more than happy to support you in any way I can!

I'm Huizhi Yang , one of the Chinese International Ambassadors for the University of East Anglia and I'm studying Business Finance and Management. 

I come from Dalian, Liaoning province,  a peaceful city surrounded by sea, just like Norwich. UEA is such a safe and beautiful school with advanced teaching facilities and a fantastic academic environment. I fell in love with UEA and Norwich from the moment I arrived, and I'm in firm belief that you will love our university once you get to know it.

I love swimming, frisbee, and singing pop music; UEA has many clubs that you can join, as well as an award winning sports centre on campus, so I can continue with all my hobbies whilst I study. I also love helping others, so if you have any questions, just feel free to ask me!

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions. We will be so happy if we could answer any questions for you! Why not chat to us directly through the Ask a Student platform or contact us by email: Chinesestudents@uea.ac.uk
