South African helps tell Wenzhou stories
"I hope that Wenzhou can become an international city in the world and I believe it has the potential. We all have to do our part to make that happen." After living in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province for almost nine years, Brett Lyndall Singh, whose Chinese name is Xin Chengle, has integrated himself well into the local life and is loving and caring about the city in his own way.
Born in 1993, the South African youth came to study at Wenzhou Medical University in 2011. Learning medicine is his childhood dream and when talking about the reason for choosing China, the young pediatrician said "because it was a rising economic giant in the world as well as a great place to experience a new culture and a new lifestyle".
Over the past few years, Brett has become a witness to the tremendous changes that Wenzhou has undergone. He said the infrastructure has largely improved with a feature that the roads have become wider and more beautiful, and the communication between foreigners and Chinese in the city has also been more smooth.
"This was all done in the space of 10 years, which I think is amazing," he remarked.
Now, the sphere of Brett's activities has gone far beyond the campus and is reaching out to various fields of the city's development.
