I was born in China where I worked for over 20 years in management and accounting. I came to the UK joining my husband at the end of 1996 and have lived in Nottingham ever since.
My life here is filled with a lot of interesting things: walking in the countryside enjoying the sunshine or the grey sky of England, taking photographs of amazing landscapes, growing flowers and also vegetables in our garden. Of course, the majority of my time has been spent on accounts since joining CA Plus in 2000.
Apart from all of those, another thing has been constantly keeping me busy. Guess what? Study! Continuously acquiring accounting knowledge and IT skills, learning the English language and understanding the English culture, and so on. I said to my teacher when I was in the primary school that I would like to keep on studying all my life as I really enjoyed it. After I have grown up, I feel that studying makes me confident no matter what roles I am in.
My hard working and studying have borne fruits: I have been awarded the fellowship of AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) and the fellowship of ACIE (Association of Charity Independent Examiners), followed by the full membership of ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). Passing ACCA exams was not easy considering my age and the fact that English is not my native language. I hope that I will be an inspiration to my colleagues and CAPlus accounting service will continue benefiting from my knowledge, skills and experience.
