I’m glad to come here and have the opportunity to study at Warwick University.
My name is Xia Lin. Xia, my family name, means summer; Lin, my given name, means forest. Forest in the summer makes you feel cool and refreshing. And I hope that I can also bring you such kind of comfortable feeling.
My English name is Samuel. I find out that the name in English means a wise person. I expect that I can learn more knowledge and culture in the UK, and improve myself a lot.
I came from Minhang District in Shanghai, and I am in charge of the office of the People’s Congress in Minhang District.
I have a happy family. My wife works in a bank, so she is good at family financial management. We have a lovely daughter, 15 years old, and she studies at junior middle school. She has been to London in 2010, which is the very first time for her to travel abroad.
I hope that this learning experience in my life will be an important turning point, not only can really improve my English skills, but also broadens my horizons for future work.
