Meeting Hilde Zadek was a very great and impressive experience. I had already heard the name in China, and when I got the opportunity to apply for a scholarship in 2018, I naturally seized it with immense gratitude. Being awarded a scholarship made me very happy. To meet such a great artist, who has invested so much in the future of young singers and provided them with help and encouragement, is something I will always remember.
With the scholarship, I could take time to work with répétiteurs and plan trips to introduce myself to theatres, without worrying about travel expenses. In 2018, I had a good guest contract at the Rossini Festival in Bad Wildbad.
Today, I hold a position as voice professor at Yangda University in Shandong, China. Our second child was born in Sept. 2019 in China. My connection with the Rossini Festival in Wildbad is very good, and there is a great interest in young Chinese singers. I am continuing to build my solo career in China and Germany.
Thank you very much for all the help I had through the scholarship.
