A person in the news that I would like to meet is actually Ren Zhengfei, who is the founder of Huawei, which is now the world’s largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment.
I knew him since I moved to Beijing, where many of my friends and friends of my parents talked about his giant company and its success. This article is from Laokaoya website. The most impressive piece of news that I’ve heard about him and his company was that Huawei, in Ren’s leadership, recruited employees with exceptionally higher rates than its competitors, which really amazed me. No wonder lots of college graduates wanted to join them every year.
At the very beginning, while I was searching for his profile out of curiosity, I found he looked like just an ordinary old man like my grandfather. However, that stereotype in my mind had changed after I saw an interview on TV. He was being so honest and humble, which was a rare quality I found among successful entrepreneurs. He acknowledged the merits of technological development that other countries like the U.S. had and encouraged us to learn from them.
Well, the reason why I want to meet him is that I would like to ask him a question regarding how to maintain a good mentality during the course of ups and downs in life. You know, it’s difficult for us and especially harder for him as a person who was responsible for such a giant tech company in which thousands of employees are in the same boat no matter what happens. I should say, he’s a great role model for me, and I really want to meet her in the near future if I got a chance.
