Xiangqun has taught Computer Science and Information Technology for more than 20 years in high school. She is also Deputy Director of the Number Three Senior High School’s Information Centre as well as leader of the Technology Department. Xiangqun has organised Robotic and App Inventor clubs in her school and her students have won many awards.

Xiangqun joined as Code Week Ambassador because she thinks it’s a good opportunity for her students to learn from students in other countries. For EU Code Week 2016 she plans to introduce the initiative to the computer science teachers in the Shenzhen Municipality.
“We will try to organise events in the all K-12 schools in Shenzhen”.

Xiangqun adds that she is also thinking of organising a global EU Code Week competition to challenge students around the world.
