English teacher Bolly began working at a foreign language school in June 2016 in Changxing County in the eastern province of Zhejiang.
A native of South Africa, she likes the children at her school a lot and gets along well with every one of her young students.
"I have already gotten used to the local life, as well as the Chinese food, and I have made a lot of friends. I never feel lonely because I joined the ranks of a 'big' family", she says.
