Reference Quotations

As a new Canadian Lily has adapted incredibly well and is now able to bridge Canadian and Chinese viewpoints with relative ease. In the MBA program Lily has performed a very important role in assisting students from China in setting and adapting to the demands of the Canadian educational system. There are very few students who can move back and forth between the cultures and assist others to appreciate the difference, as well as Lily can – she has been an exceptionally fine asset to us at Royal Roads University

As a person Lily is a very outgoing and positive, full of ideas and committed to both the growth of this institution as well as her own personal growth. Lily is ambitious and matches hard work – a winning combination which I anticipate will carry her a long way in her career.

Additionally, Lily has shown herself capable of throwing herself in at the deep end, ready to take risks: She is always willing to try new things, as a review of her career to date will show. Most importantly Lily has a great desire to keep learning new things – her strong effort to master project management is just an example.

Lily is one of those students who will be remembered long after she has moved on into her career. Always full of life and energy, she is a most charming person who is socially at ease in all situations – a gift which she uses to assist others feel at ease as well.

I am pleased to be able to write of Lily in such positive terms – There is much in her to be admired. Lily will be a great asset to whoever is fortunate enough to engage her services – and I wish her well.

As a new Canadian, Lily has taken to heart the notion that every citizen has a responsibility to their community. Her energy and kindness have had a lasting impact on this university.

I know that Lily will be accomplished in any endeavour to which she commits herself and I wish her the greatest success upon graduation.
