    As a postgraduate student as well as a newcomer in society, I was confused from time to time. Thanks to Zenki, who is a helpful teacher and a sincere friend, I gradually know what kind of work I want to do and what kind of person I want to be in the future.

    Irene is a great model for us. The characteristic she has, being professional, responsible and innovation, daring to change, always keeping an eye on the market, and so on, are what we should learn. Her rich experience does inspire us to become a better person in work place and we should never forget to learn something new.
