Su Jian, a young student from Bolivia, has developed a keen interest in mysterious China because of the Belt and Road Initiative. In order to pursue this dream, she embarked on a journey to learn Chinese at the Confucius Institute of SAN Simon University in Bolivia in 2019. After four years of persistence and hard work, she not only successfully passed the Chinese exam, but also won the scholarship to study in China. In August 2023, Su stepped into Qinhuangdao, China, and became a student of Hebei Vocational College of Foreign Trade and Economics.

When she first arrived in China, Su was impressed by the hospitality of the Chinese people. When I first arrived at the school, my classmates were very helpful, taking me to the canteen, telling me the location of the supermarket, and even leaving a phone number so that I could call them at any time if I needed them, she shared her experience. The warmth of the human feeling allowed her to quickly integrate into her new environment.

For Su Shallow, Qinhuangdao brings her not only learning opportunities, but also unforgettable experiences. In her country, the sea was out of reach, but here she was able to enjoy the beauty of the seaside. She also personally boarded the majestic Great Wall seen on the Internet to feel its thousands of years of historical precipitation.

2024 is the year of the Dragon, and Su's first Spring Festival in China falls in this year, so she feels extremely lucky. During the Spring Festival, the school teachers organized the international students to make dumplings and spend the festival together, which made Su shallow feel the warmth of home.

In addition to her professional studies, Su is also actively working as a Chinese teacher, practicing her teaching skills by giving lectures to students. In order to have a deeper understanding of Chinese culture, she also learned calligraphy, paper cutting and other skills. Su said that her dream is to become a Chinese teacher after returning to China, and share what she has seen, heard and learned in China with more Bolivians, so as to deepen the friendship between China and Bolivia.
