2019 – 2020            China Academy of Building Research 
                                  As a producer and a team leader of a short film series on Nation fire 
                                  safety and building safety, I have learnt the importance of teamwork      
                                  spirit. Always being organized, bring cohesion to the team. I am
                                  responsible for designing and digital illustrating the main character                                           
                                  and the storyboard, also distributing the design of other characters 
                                  to my collages. This job has increased my awareness of being the
                                  reasonable allocation of tasks could get the job done right on time    
                                  and more efficiently. That experience made me gain more knowledge
                                  about the best way to work with people and improve my leadership

                                  Management Sciences tenth anniversary”. I have learnt that details are 
                                  unignorable. I am responsible for the exhibit display and the whole 
                                  visual design and interior design of this exhibition. This job increased my
                                  ability to be organised and look at the overall situation but also pay 
                                  attention to the details at the same time. Carrying out the exhibition  
                                  raised my design level and proficiency in 3D modelling software.
