HI!My name is Bin Shan, and you can call me Banin.I come from China .My undergraduate studies were in environmental design.And now I'm very happy to join this new course.I've always been drawn to the design which is why I'm excited to be a part of the urban design program here. Beyond academics, you can often find me hiking in nearby national parks or indulging in a good book at a local coffee shopRecently, I am also addicted to music, learning piano and electric guitar, although the play is not good, but I enjoy it very much.And,I really like car culture. I often modify my own cars.I'm really excited to be here and looking forward to study with you guys for this year,and I can't wait to see what the future holds at Newcastle university.
