"In the course of our second year, I was asked to build my own restaurant with which I encountered a lot of problems. The teacher's guidance was very helpful to me and I learnt a lot.
"During this project about entrepreneurship, I learnt to know what the key linkages are, how to operate, how to manage, and how to market. And my teacher-guided and helped us throughout this process. For example, our teacher would help us to identify any problems, and this meant the entire process had a better outcome. This helped make me feel better prepared for my future career and entrepreneurship.
"In the future, my ultimate goal is to manage several large hotels. What I have learned and practiced in other hotels will make me more professional and successful in this field," Yan said.
