In the future, I want to have my own laboratory. My dream is to become independent and become a president.

My mother is a dentist. I studied to become a dental hygienist when I was in China. I liked anime, manga, cars, and motorcycles, so I came to Japan. The work of a dental technician is like drawing pictures and making designs. I think that's a wonderful job that can make people grateful. I visited all of the dental hygienist schools in Tokyo. I thought that Shin-Tokyo was new and spacious, and the teachers were kind as well. Now I want to get to know the teachers better and make a lot of friends. In the future, I want to have my own laboratory. My dream is to become independent and become a president.
