Ethan Hong. The reason why I named myself Ethan is I’m a big fan of Ethan Hawke. I watched most of his movies. And my favorites are Before Sunset and Before Sunrise cuz they are so romantic! I also heard that Before Midnight is great too but it’s not on screen in China, which sicks so bad. I think I still have chance to watch it :) Fan of Jesse! Come and find me, we’ll have good time together!
What do you do?
Soon I'm going to be an exchange student in Sweden. I'm now a sophomore in Shanghai University. I also help our leader Lily with marketing out official homepage in Chinese Twitter.
Where do you live?
Mostly I live in Shanghai. But I’ll be back home for 1 or 2 months to meet my family in Guangxi province, probably in January and July. You can also ask me show you around Guangxi. I can host there as well.
How long have you been in Shanghai?
At least 2 years and I’ll stay here till I graduate! It means you have 2 more years to meet me ;), kidding.
How much do you love Shanghai? (1~100%) What do you like about it?
90% I think. I mean I so damn love the city. The atmosphere, circumstance, environment, people and so on are just so so great. It’s convenient to live in here. People here are kind, fresh, warm- hearted and undeniable! The 10% off is for it’s weather, too hot in summer and too cold in winter, which I can’t bare.
Your favorite area in Shanghai?
Definitely Jing’an and Huangpu districts. Hengshan Road and Xinti’andi are great as well. If you like the modern part of the city, just find me and you won’t be regret.
Why do you want to be a volunteer of Shanghai Greeters?
My opinion is that being a volunteer is the best way to show your love for the city. As I told you how much I love Shanghai so I want to spread my love to everyone who comes to Shanghai and make them love the city. And I’m willing to help people. That why I choose to be a volunteer of Shanghai Greeters.
