Erika Zoeller Veras

 

My name is Erika Zoeller Veras and I am from Brazil. Since 2006 I have had the amazing opportunity to be part of Wuhan University of Technology - WUT. I first came with a scholarship from the China Scholarship Council to do my MBA at the School of Management. Seven years ago I landed in Wuhan on very hot summer day. The ride from the airport gave me some signals that the city was going through huge transformations and constructions were everywhere.
Many were the challenges by that time, not only in terms of academic aspects but also in terms of life in Wuhan. Slowly, I got to learn more about the university and the city and this long-term relationship started to flourish. Being the monitor of the MBA group gave me the chance to understand different cultures, countries, religions and different backgrounds. Trying to overcome these differences together among more than 15 nationalities gave the group the chance to grow stronger and we had the opportunity to make good friends from all over the world. 
The Chinese culture is very rich and being in Wuhan is a great chance to learn more about this country and all its facets. Learning the language also provides a unique experience to understand the Chinese way of thinking and living.  Life in the campus is vivid and there is not a day that you cannot learn from this experience. The surroundings of the university improved dramatically along the last years. Old buildings will have been torn down; new skyscrapers will have emerged from a land where there was nothing. The city is becoming more modern and international.
My years at WUT also gave me the chance to witness many positive changes at the university aiming to elevate the studies’ level and the academic performance. The School of International Education and the International office are always working towards improvements concerning the students’ lives and are open to dialogue with them to meet their needs and expectations.
My research at WUT (both MBA and PhD) put me in touch with issues of my concern and interest such as management, entrepreneurship, diversity and women in business. And since 2006 I have been attending national and international conferences, having the chance to meet scholars from all over the world and exchanging ideas, besides having my papers published in several countries.
At the same time, the university is also open to new partnerships. So I had the honor to bridge academic opportunities between my country and China. In 2009 I introduced my alma-mater (PUCSP) to Wuhan University of Technology and since then Brazil is taking part in the ICIM – International Conference of Innovation and Management – initiated by WUT 10 years ago.  In the same year I enrolled in the PhD program at WUT and soon will be defending my thesis. Many were the positive outcomes of being part of this university and many more are yet to come. WUT will be always in my mind and in my heart. I will definitely miss my life in here. Thank you for everything!

我的名字是艾丽卡,来自巴西。2006年,我有幸获得就读武汉理工大学的机会。首先,我以中国政府奖学金生身份来在管理学院学习MBA。在七年前那个非常炎热的夏天,我来到了武汉。从机场到学校的一路,让我觉得这个城市正在经历着巨大的蜕变,高楼大厦随处可见。那时候到处充满挑战,不仅仅体现在学习上,而且还表现在武汉的生活方面。慢慢的,我开始了解我的大学和武汉这座城市。作为MBA集体的班长,让我有机会了解不同的文化、国家和宗教。在超过15个民族的集体里,我们一起努力克服各种困难以促使集体的壮大,也让我们有机会和来自世界各地的同学成为好朋友。

中国文化是非常丰富的,在武汉也让我有更好的机会去更多学习和了解这个国家。学习汉语让我学会了以中国的方式去思考和生活。校园生活是多彩的,让我无时无刻地在感受着、学习着。在过去的几年里,校园周边的环境发生了翻天覆地的变化。旧的建筑被拆除,新的摩天大楼都拔地而起。这个城市越来越现代化和国际化。

在武汉理工大学的几年也让我有幸见证了学校在提升学生学术水平上的巨大成效。国际教育学院留学生办公室总是朝着不断改进学生生活努力着,同时定期开展座谈来了解学生的需求和期望。我在武汉理工大学的研究 (包括MBA和博士)让我接触到我所关心和感兴趣的问题,例如管理、创业、多样性和商业女性。2006年,我参加的国家及国际会议,让我有幸见到来自世界各地的学者并交流了想法,除此外,也让我的论文发表在了不同的国家。同时,学校也积极开展校际交流。让我有幸能为中国和我的国家之间展开学术交流牵桥搭线。2009年,我把我的母校(PUCSP) 介绍给武汉理工大学。自那时起,巴西就开始参加ICIM -国际创新和管理会议(10年前由武汉理工大学发起)。同年,我开始了我的博士学位学习和专业领域的攻坚。武汉理工大学将永远留在我的脑海,我的心里。将来,我肯定会想念我在这里的生活。谢谢在这里的一切!
