What inspired you to get involved?
I began volunteering in 2008 and currently volunteer in Beijing a few times a year. I got involved with volunteering to begin with as helping people makes me feel happy. I havenít had the opportunity to volunteer in the UK yet and would love to see the difference between volunteering in the two countries.
What skills or qualities are required for your volunteering role?
I was a shy person before I became a volunteer but now I have learned to communicate easily with different people.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering and what has been your highlight?
The thing I enjoy the most is helping people who need it, it makes me feel happy and I can see I am making a good impact on them. The highlight for me was being a volunteer in 2008 at the Beijing Olympics, it was a great experience.
