City Stylin' #14

We took to the streets to find Notts' best dressed...

I’m studying at the University of Nottingham, but didn’t have class today. It's really sunny, so I just came out to chill. I always feel happy when it's sunny. My life mantra would be carpe diem; seize the day. You only live once.

I’m doing my masters in TESOL at the University of Nottingham, which is teaching English to speakers of other languages. I did my undergrad in Education, but that was in China. It's always been my dream to teach.

Nottingham is the first place I've ever lived in England, and I find it very peaceful and cozy here. It's not like London, Manchester or Birmingham, which are all very crowded.

I usually wear a hoodie, jeans and sneakers. I love hoodies because they're very useful, especially in England. If it's windy or raining, I can just use a hoodie and not have to take an umbrella with me. Comfort is key. Teachers in China aren’t allowed to have their hair dyed in too many colours, so at the moment I’m dying mine every three months. I’m doing every colour I want while I can.

My shoes are limited edition from Nike. They only sell them in China, and they have "the Year of Pig" on them, as well as the symbol for a pig written in Old Chinese. I was born in 1993, so I'm the Year of the Rooster, but I don’t really think these animals can represent your personality.


We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
