You Yuhao

Professional Basketball Player, Hardworking Spirit

         Having captained SJTU Men’s Basketball Team since 2006 and studied here since 2005, I’m now a graduate with a Master Degree of Education.
It is at SJTU that I’ve succeeded in transforming from a professional athlete to a college student. It is years I’ve spent at SJTU that broaden my horizon, improve my cultural knowledge and enrich my understanding of basic theories. It is my mentors’ earnest teachings and intensification of the courses that make my knowledge more systematical and professional and my problem-solving ability enhanced, especially during my postgraduate study.
I’m grateful to both SJTU and the Department of Physical Education of SJTU for helping me conduct the natural transformation. I appreciate that the PE Department follows the principle of teaching students in accordance with their aptitude, and thanks to the principle I have not only improved my basketball skills, but also got a qualitative change in cultural quality.
I also want to express my heartfelt thanks to SJTU for laying a solid scientific and cultural foundation for my devotion to the construction of China. The work in the department and within the team has not only enhanced my all-round competence, but also set me clear objectives for future career: whatever job I take, I shall observe professional ethic with a spirit of cooperation, and work conscientiously on the basis of the collective interest.
I promise that I will do all my work with a hundredfold efforts and a precise and well-knit working style to redound on SJTU’s nourishment and expectation.
