At Elite Model Look we say: “your differences make our world” What makes you different?

My willingness to try everything makes me different. I'm not afraid of trying new things.

What is your passion? 

I love the beat of rap music and I really enjoy listening to the lyrics of the songs. I find them really emotive and they make me feel much better if I’m feeling down. I’ve listened to rap since middle school, it makes me feel strong and helps me to focus.  Rap music is like poetry for me and I definitely have a connection to it.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote that inspires you to succeed?

"Life would be tragic if it weren’t so funny!"

Do you have a favourite model?

Cindy Crawford. Her catwalk is impressive. Also, I appreciate her attitude towards life. I am very interested in fashion, and I think that being a model is very exciting.

Have you met any previous Finalists from China?

Meeting the previous Finalists helps me a lot. Listening to their experiences actually gives me more passion and confidence to prepare for my Final. I feel very honoured to join Elite Model Look China, and I could learn a lot from it. 

What is your favourite…

Instagram account: @doyoutravel is my favourite account. I think that it's so cool that he decided to quit his job and travel around the world!

Sport: running, swimming, and playing tennis. They make me feel energetic.

Movie: Train to Busan 2016. I like the way humanity is portrayed in the film. 

Do you have a hero who inspires you to succeed?

Yes. I have a very good friend who also took part in Elite Model Look China this year. He gave me so much confidence and we supported each other the whole time. I want to do well for him!

What is the best holiday you have ever been on?

That must be my trip to Qinghai province. I went to see the Caka Salt Lake. It is so calm and pure there. 

If you were a flavour of ice cream, what would you be?

Maybe chocolate. Since life is like a box of chocolates, we could never know what flavour we will get. Plus, I just really like chocolate!

If you could go anywhere in the world – where you haven’t already been – where would you go?

The Sahara Desert. I hope to see something different.

 How does it feel to represent China at the 35th Elite Model Look World Final?

I feel very excited and happy! I have known about the competition for a while, and I was selected in the Elite open audition. I am looking forward to meeting the other Finalists. My booker and my family helped me a lot to apply the competition.

Tell us about China!

I think China is famous for its architecture, and for ancient philosophers like Confucius. I am proud of its history and culture. China has more than 5000 years of history, and that gives us national confidence.
