Motivation for nomination

As China’s operator and APNIC's member, I have a close connection with Jessica Shen. I’m impressed by her high professionalism in her area and her passion and abilities to create ties among different organizations. I have attended the China IP Alliance Submit hosted by her for several times and regard it as a good opportunity to learn advanced IPv6 practices from abroad, and communicate with local ISP, ICP and IDC. As an active Chinese representative in APNIC community, she always has a conversation with us about the important issues discussed in APNIC community. That makes us feel more comfortable to participate in. I also see her great efforts in the APNIC community via her volunteer job duties as co-chair and EC. From her proven achievements and excellent coordination capability, I am sure she will make a greater contribution to the APNIC community as the EC member.
