You are likely never to have heard of Zhuhai – located in the southwest of China’s Pearl River delta, Zhuhai is southern China’s best kept secret. Having just been a small fishing village in the 1970’s before being granted Special Economic Zone (SEZ) status, Zhuhai was incorporated as a city in 1979. Its growth since then has been remarkable – the quality of life as well as population size have shifted significantly in the past 30 years.

Christina at her workplace
IC TEAM:Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where do you come from, what are your interests?
CHRISTINA: Okay, so I’m from a small town called Sleaford in Lincolnshire, both my parents are from Hong Kong so I know a little Cantonese but no Mandarin. I go to Liverpool University; I’m in 2nd year doing a Pharmacology degree. I joined as part of the Generation UK government scheme after meeting up with Jamie.
IC TEAM: How did you settle in China?
CHRISTINA: My first week was a little bit rough and certainly made me stronger. Work’s been really good, and the people from work helped me so much! After my first week I’ve really loved it, I really don’t want to leave now! My experience with my colleagues was so touching. I really think that I’ve never really had something like that before.
IC TEAM:What did your Internship include?
CHRISTINA: I get to see a lot of procedures that the doctors do here which is great experience to have. I’ve observed traditional Chinese medicine doctors performing acupuncture and cupping. It was interesting to see how it differed from conventional Western Medicine and it’s important to remember traditional Chinese Medicine has been around many more years than Western Medicine.
IC TEAM:What has been the best thing about your internship? Are there moments that you will never forget?
CHRISTINA: The whole experience itself, meeting new people, interacting with other foreigners. And here it’s just a completely different lifestyle. I did the Zhuhai Valentine’s tandem bike race for example and it was such a lovely weekend. Definitely an experience that I won’t forget soon!
IC TEAM: Are you going to come back?
CHRISTINA: I wish I had spent longer here but I hope to definitely come back to explore more of China and visit the company friends that I’ve made here in my time in China. It has definitely been an experience I will never forget!
