My name's Sunny - I'm from China. Hi!

So... I'm looking for a job. The problem is, I don't know what to do - I've tried looking everywhere. So... my career advisor told me to think about what I like doing.

I love dancing... I really, really, really like travelling. I enjoy singing and performing... I guess that's why I decided to study drama at university...

Keeping fit! I always try to keep fit, though I hate swimming! I suppose I just hate to be bored. I even tried to learn juggling and ukulele.

I hope to be famous one day! But for now - I need a job. What do you guys think I should do? Message me!

To do
