Her deep understanding of the challenges faced by international students enables her to offer empathetic and personalized guidance, ensuring each student receives the help they need to succeed both academically and personally.

Outside of her professional life, Yuanrong is a devoted pet owner with a cat and a dog. She is also an avid traveler, constantly seeking new experiences and cultures to enrich her understanding of the world.
