Professional Biography By Chengqing Zhuang Born and raised in Suzhou, a city with a 2500-year history and also named as Venice of the East, I, Chengqing Zhuang, am a first-year CCT student from China. Dreaming of being an excellent investigative reporter, I studied journalism as my bachelor degree at Fudan University in Shanghai, which owns the best journalism school in China. With the advance of technology, media all over the world encounter opportunities and challenges, which is also an important timing for all the journalists and editors. Since I am interested in the relationship between media, politics and technology, I think the study of the effect new media and technology exert on politics and government is amazing. Studying a different regime in America may give me some inspiration on how to study politics in China, and studying abroad may give me a chance to observe China in a new perspective. So I choose to study in CCT, which I believe will provide me with an interdisciplinary perspective and be of great help to my study. In the next two years, I will keep the track of media and politics and learn knowledge as much as I can. China is my hometown and it is also my next stop. To be a journalist or to be a scholar? I am not sure. But what I am sure is I will use what I have learnt in CCT to observe, record and study China.
