I am Yafei Liao from Shanghai, China. I completed my Bachelor of Laws at Fudan University and consequently pursued a master's degree at Renmin University of China, majoring in International Politics. I have been a volunteer Chinese Lecturer at the Confucius Institute at the University of Zimbabwe in the past two years. Before that, I worked as an intern at the South-South Policy Team at UNDP China for half a year, mainly focusing on Sino-African development cooperation. The experiences and observations in Southern African countries gave me good opportunities to deeply understand the status quo of international development and also made me realize the urgency to invest in infrastructures and especially in renewable energies as the foundation for economic development in this region. During my study at BSG, I wish to enhance my understanding of these fields and improve the practical skills for my future career in international development.
