How did you become a model?
When Longteng found me and I took a part in the Longteng Supermodel Contest, my shape was not very good at that time, and at the same time, the college entrance examination was imminent. After attending the university entrance exam, I went back to the company and worked on my shape for 3 months, then started on the right track.

Are there any brands or photographers you admire?
My favorite foreign photographer is Lorenzo Marucci. The photographer quickly finished the job while chatting! And the favorite brand, I can’t make a choice, I like them all.

What was your favorite fashion week moment?
When I was opening Kenzo I was so excited, and nervous! That was my first time to open the famous brand show!

What are your interests outside of modeling?
I like playing games, singing, spending time with friends and watching movies!

What is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite places in the world are wherever I am with my lover. That must be my favorite place, because this place must be beautiful for the person who I love.

Where do you see your career in ten years?
I would like to have my own restaurants!
