I got into anime when I was in primary school and started drawing characters from films and TV shows. Then in middle school I started to get interested in cosplay. Since then I’ve improved my drawing and remixed music and made videos related to anime.

I’m now in the process of making my artwork portfolio which I plan to sell at the Shanghai Anime Expo.Many people don’t understand or even think negatively about anime and anime fans.

Despite what others may think, anime has been a huge positive influence in my life. It has encouraged me to stick to what I love and it has taught me about many things, such as history, in ways that I can easily understand.
