My generation may look back on our time at a Radio and TV University (RTVU) as the most precious period in our lives.

Xiao Jianpeng is from Neijiang, Sichuan Province, and was a Law undergraduate in the 2016 class, obtaining his Bachelor of Law degree in 2018. In August of 2010, after graduating from high school, he enrolled in the military, was given the rank of sergeant, and named boat-navigation squad leader for the Hong Kong garrison. He participated in a series of military exercises, including the first trial voyage of the warship Liaoning, protection of the Xiangjiang River, and joint sea–and-air search-and-rescue. He was named "excellent shooter", "model trainee" and "excellent sergeant".

In 2013, after graduating from a higher vocational college in Hubei Province, I came to Wuhan alone, longing for a better life, and with an unlimited vision of my future. When I first arrived, everything here excited me. I fell in love with this city, and decided to settle down and make my life here. Renting an apartment and finding a job kept me very busy, but I was happy, and filled with a sense of achievement and seemingly inexhaustible energy.

I am a graduate of the Jimo School of the Qingdao branch of the Open University of China (OUC). The OUC has been a milestone on the road of my life and has left me with unforgettable memories.

I remember a philosopher once said that the goddess of fortune and prosperity does not give gifts, she gives opportunities. I never imagined I would have the chance to receive degree education after more than 10 years of work. When I signed up to study at the OUC, I was excited to have such a good opportunity for further study.
