My name is Su Yin Chan. My father is from New Territories, Hong Kong, but my mother is half-Chinese from Jamaica, and that is where I was born before moving to the UK at the age of three. I grew up in North Wales and then moved to London. I taughtEnglish in the public sector in the city centre. Back in 2005 and 2007, Ijoineda teacher delegation to exchange experiences of education in China, and I was lucky enough to visit Beijing for a week each time, mainly teaching in a school. Having promised my father to learn the language, I am now fulfilling that promise here at UWC Changshu, China, and loving being here.
