Alumni Salon of School of Foreign Languages: Where will life take you?

Peking University, April 6, 2015: “Where will life take you? You never know, then do count your life as a journey: just go ahead and you’ll reach the destination–but above all, take that forward step,” said Yang Huimin, one of the lecturers at the 9th Alumni Salon of School of Foreign Languages.

The Salon was held on the evening of March 27th at New Building of School of Foreign Languages. Three outstanding alumni were invited to share their personal journeys and views of life with PKU students.

Yang Huimin, graduate of French Department at School of Foreign Languages and now director of customer relations at Louis Vuitton Malletier, said that she had once been at a loss when choosing her career yet never felt helpless. “If you do not know what to choose, you should first try your best to get an offer.” Yang encouraged the audience to follow their hearts and enjoy the freedom of picking up their own future paths. “How much do you yearn for it? What would you forgo for it? What can you get from it? Do you think it worthwhile to go for it?” Yang asked. “If you are resolute, then live up to your dream with no regrets.”

Only when you have been well prepared can you grab the chance. Yang told the audience that the mastery of major  study is the foundation for future development. One of the best students in French Department during her university, Yang was given more opportunity to take her choice. “No matter what you are doing, you have to get ready for it. If you are charming, capable, promising and creative, you can always make your job interesting and yourself reliable,” said Yang.

Zhang Du, majored in Japanese and then transferred to School of International Studies during his undergraduate period and recently joined China State Construction Engineering Corporation, added that it is exactly our crucial decisions that sometimes seem incomprehensible to others. Thus students need not worry too much about others’ opinions or it might become unnecessary burdens.

Zhang Qingxia who graduated from Mongolian Department also shared her thoughts about career with the students. She and the other two alumni reminded the students to cherish their precious time and invaluable friendship at university to make the experiences at PKU a marvelous memory.

At last, the guests further exchanged ideas covering various areas of interests with the students.
