Hi everyone. My name is Wendy. I'm studying at Ivey with Master of International Business and CEMS Program. Unfortunately, due to Covid19 pandemic I am currently located at Chengdu, China to take online courses with almost 12 hours time difference. I know fighting with time difference is pretty hard but it's also really interesting to take a Master program in my hometown country. So in this very first video, I am going to introduce a little bit by myself and what brings me into this program. I was born in southeast of China and our whole family moved to northwest of China when I was about six years old. I pretty much spent all my childhood and school life there until 16. It is really beautiful and embracing places um with 13 different minorities living there. Later I finished my undergraduate degree in Western University with commercial aviation management and minor in Japanese studies. During the school time I also acquired a private pilot license um since I really joined flying. Um, However, I was a little bit confused, I was a little bit like confused about my future career goal. I'm not sure what I want to be in the future at that time. I was a little hesitant as well since I couldn't imagine myself to do a job that has a similar routine work almost every day without any new and fun stuff, and without any like a challenging opportunities. So being a professional pilot is only going to be, it's not gonna be my professional goal. Um flying is only going to be my interest. Therefore I decided to try something different. Um one of my biggest interest is to learning different culture and languages. I believe it's on the third year summer of university life. Um I applied an exchange program, University of Japan, which has a lot of fun and value. And there I met a lot of friends who come from all of the word and also gained a deeper understanding of Japanese culture. That experience not only cultivate me for saying the world from different angles, but most importantly it motivated me to pursue a career that related to international business and culture studies. It is really interesting and after I made my decision I realized that my past experience, my past cultural background, both in China and Canada has already gave me this unique experience for seeing the world from different cultural backgrounds. Therefore, I decided to search different um international business programs in North America. After a few weeks, I decided to apply Ivey. Actually, Ivey has always been my top list and dream school since it has this well designed curriculum and strong and exceptional Ivey alumni network and most importantly it is the only CEMS partnering school was that you got this opportunity to exchange school all over the world to get a deeper understanding of different culture. There are a lot of interesting things that I want to share with you guys about life at Ivey. Such as classmates, friends and classes and learning team, career management team, and professors. Therefore, due to the time limit, um, I think I'll see you guys in my next video. Bye.
