As a Master student in the Faculty of Forestry at UBC, Qiuning is focusing on the project of forest therapy now. Since the forest is one of Meilleurs souvenirs in her childhood, she like staying with the forest and communicating with nature. As a nature enthusiast, from the first day here, she immersed herself in the study of various disciplines that form the theoretical basis of the natural world. After a four-year undergraduate study at UBC, she has found it quite rewarding and fulfilling to study nature subjects and reinforced her thought to deeply study nature. She feels that Vancouver welcomed her with its friendly atmosphere and beautiful landscape when she first arrived as an international student. Therefore, she will continue to pursue her master’s degree in forestry and contribute to the natural environment.
