Baby Surrey

Surrey – born 2017

My name is Zhuo Li (MSc in International Business Management 2014) and I met my husband, Kang Liu (MSc in Healthcare Management 2014) in a new student chat group. He was already on campus for his language course at the University of Surrey. He was very kind and gave me varieties of useful information. We became close friends. When I arrived in the UK, he became my guide around campus and we fell in love naturally. It didn’t take long for us to know that we want to spend the rest of our lives together.

Being together in Surrey, we were able to support each other through every step of the way. We headed back to China and got married. Three years later our beautiful son was born. We had already come to an agreement that we would name our baby Surrey, in honour of our university. Surrey is not simply a place that we studied at. We found love there. We decided to start a family there. We figured out what we wanted there. It is really important to us for our son to know what the University had given us.

Now Kang is working as a Marketing Supervisor in the American pharmaceutical company, Allergan. I am Director of Operations of global finance company, Asset Pro. We both benefitted so much from our time at the University. The University of Surrey will forever be our favourite place in the world. Wonderful things do happen there.
