Q & A
When and where you began playing, and why this sport?
"When I was 9 in Shanghai. I have always been very athletic since I was a kid. I was actually recommended by my teacher to be a volleyball player. So I started training in volleyball but I found the training too torturous, so then I made the switch to badminton! And started my journey from then on."
