Mrs. Angel Mi Lin
X SCHOOL
Founder
China

Biography
Mrs. Angel Mi Lin has 20 years of experience in China’s Education and Training Industry. She is the Co-Founder of Global Citizen Training School in Jilin China, leading the school to be a reputable organization in local market but will national reputation. She is now the Co- Founder and CEO of X SCHOOL in Beijing China overseeing its strategic development and daily operations. Receiving education in China and seeing deficiencies in the Chinese education system, Angel began her journey of closing the gap when she was in university in 1995. She started by teaching some “bad students” at her small but cozy home for free in her own way. 12 months later, these students became top students in their classes. Encouraged by this, she began to help more “bad students" and students from economically inferior families whom are conventionally regarded “hopeless” in the China context. By 1997, she already had 120 students, and more students were coming to her. Then her first training centre was set up on the 24th December 1997, and now, the Jilin Global Citizens Training School has grown to be the most popular organization in northern China with over 10,000 students, most of whom are the “bad students” and “poor students”. When most of the Chinese training organizations are focused on test skill training for quick money, Angel saw the serious negative impact this has brought to the Chinese children and youth, including ignorance of life skills and social skills, high academic pressure, isolation from main streams, mental and psychological disorder, dropouts from schools, etc., she established the X SCHOOL in Beijing in 2015, wishing to help Chinese students to involve in international education, survive in international environment and thrive in globalization era. Although what the future world looks like is not yet clear, X SCHOOL strives to close the gap with quality education programs developed over the years and educate Chinese children and youth in ways that better prepare them for the VUCA world so that it can nurture the first generation of global citizens and global leaders who can think globally and act locally. Over 50 parents have joined together as investors to help with the growth of X SCHOOL, and more parents are joining every single day. Angel Mi Lin would very much like to give a short talk, sharing her visions and insights on how a non-government organization can help to supplement the national education system while preparing students for this VUCA world in a very practical way. We would appreciate it greatly if you could please help to make this happen so that her talk can inspire millions more around the globe.
