Yesterday was Wenli’s graduation day. After all the blood and sweat, she earned her doctoral title—Dr Wu. I was fortunate enough to have the chance to share her glory and joy. While shooting video of her, shaking the hand of the Deputy Vice Chancellor and then walking towards Prof Alan Prout to receive her PhD certificate, I felt very proud and happy for her. I tried to imagine myself, doing the same in 2011. Let’s work harder and smarter, my fellow colleagues in WIE. Very soon, we will earn our doctoral degree like her!
