What do you like about occupational therapy?
你喜欢作业治疗的什么?

All in all, I like the core values of occupational therapy. In the 21st century, occupational therapy retains a holistic view of the patient. I am convinced that occupation is not only a means of therapy, but also the ultimate goal of intervention.
总而言之,我喜欢作业治疗所拥有的核心价值。在21世纪,作业治疗保持了对患者的整体观。我坚信,作业不只是治疗的手段,也是干预的最终目标。

What are some memorable moments from your residency experience?
在你的实习经历中有哪些难忘的时刻?

I have received a lot of support and help from the China Initiative, which I really appreciate. At the same time, I also created and presented a poster at the 2022 AOTA INSPIRE Conference, where I shared my scientific research findings. It has been a pleasure to interact with occupational therapy practitioners and scholars throughout the United States. I have also gained many experiences related to clinical practice.

How do you plan to advance OT in China?
你计划如何推进OT在中国的发展?

I plan to start with scientific research. I will conduct OT or OS research, apply for research funds, publish papers, and utilize data to support the applicability and significance of occupational therapy within the Chinese context. Later, I will become an occupational therapy practitioner that integrates medical practice, teaching and research, promotes the unique values of OT and actively explores the localization of occupational therapy.
我计划先从科研做起。我将开展作业治疗或者作业科学的研究,申请研究基金,发表文章,并利用数据来支持作业治疗在中国背景下的适用性和意义。之后,我将成为一名集医学实践、教学、科研于一体的作业治疗从业者,弘扬OT的独特价值,积极探索作业治疗的本土化。

What are your favorite occupation(s)?
你最喜欢的作业活动是什么?

I like hiking. The fresh air and the pleasant scenery helps me de-stress and release me from the pressure of life for a while. I also like reading.  While reading, a cup of black tea can make it even better. And of course, playing the guitar. I like singing, even though I’m not that good at it.
我喜欢徒步旅行。新鲜的空气和怡人的景色帮我减压,让我从生活的压力中暂时解脱出来。我还喜欢阅读。读书时,饮一杯红茶,甚佳。当然,我还喜欢弹吉他。我喜欢唱歌,尽管唱得不好。
