What I’m doing now

I am currently working as International Move Consultant for Allied Pickfords, a professional international moving company. Allied Pickfords offers international as well as domestic home-moving  and storage solution.

I have been in Guangzhou since September 2013 and will be staying here for the forseeable future.

My best Lancaster memory

My best memories are associated with my time on the Executive Board of the Lancaster University Culture Society and that is how I met my future husband. We were both passionate about intercultural exchange and found mutually interesting topics. I had a great team and together we achieved a lot of recognition. It was truly an invaluable experience to run a society serving 300+ members who all have diverse cultural backgrounds. Organising tens of events, big and small and co-ordinating 40 people with their work was challenging, but also exciting and fun. Finally I made wonderful friends with whom I still keep in touch with to this day and remind me of the good old days.

What Lancaster means to me

Lancaster is certainly more than just a university to me. I gained very much during my time - knowledge, skills, memories, friends, a husband - and I cherish it all. Even years after graduating I still receive support and new opportunities through the Lancaster network in China. I am happy and proud to be a Lancaster alumna.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

I want to keep up the spirit of Lancaster and ensure that fresh and older graduates offer and find mutual support.
