Moving to North Wales five years ago, Jiawei joined the English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) course at Coleg Menai, to open up new education opportunities.
Jiawei said: "Before I started I was really nervous. I'd never studied in this country and I didn't know what the classes would be like."
"It felt amazing starting college. The teacher was really friendly; the class sizes were small and we were all the same level of English. We were able to talk about our different cultures and countries. In China school is very formal, we just listen to teachers. We can discuss things with the tutor in ESOL, I was taught a new way of learning."
After studying for three years at the college, Jiawei moved on to study IT, achieving straight distinctions.
"The first year in ESOL was the best of my life. We had so much fun through learning, even going out on trips to learn about Welsh culture."
"I have now accepted a place in Bangor University studying Computer Science! I would never have been able to do this without ESOL."Jiawei Zhang Computer Science student at Bangor University
