Zhang Dazhong, her second mentor, taught her how to get the best results from th
e papers she assigned her students. Now, the average score for her class has jumped to second place in the grade.
“The Jiangsu teachers are all very nice and willing to tutor me. They all

In addition to providing teaching guidance, the Jiangsu teache

Long said he has been a fan of Japanese animation and manga since childhood — especially
Doraemon, in which a pile of cement pipes is a place for Nobita Nobi to play with his friends and a shelter from bullies.
Inspired by the scene, Long has always dreamed of actually living in a concrete tube.
In January, Long started his ambitious construction plan. He used planks to form the tube frame fast
ened by steel bars, and filled it with cement. After the tube was done, he set out on interior design and decoration.
