Hi there! My name is Xiao Xiao. I'm a bright and sporty girl, who has turned 21 this year. This year is also my website's 12-year Anniversary~! So celebrate together with me and win loadsa prizes!
 
I haven't got a brother or sister, but have loadsa friends, partly because I am easy-going and very understanding, with a good shoulder to cry on and a bright smile to laugh with \(^_^)/ Hope you will become my friend as well! Please write to me!
By the way my hometown is Jinan. Capital of Shandong, P.R. China.
 
Not only am I good at web designing, mastered HTML myself & obtained Certificate for Java Programming from IBM, I also have very high academic ability. You know what, I achieved the highest GCSE marks in Cantell Maths & Computing College - No. 1! With 9 A*s & 4 As. Being the Deputy Head Girl of the school as well as the highest achiever, I was invited to get my photograph taken to be put on Cantell's website and newspaper to encourage forthcoming students. Oh, and also invited to the school's Annual Presentational Evening to receive an award & some book tokens as well.

I am looking forward to be in the National Team!
I also go swimming in order to keep myself fit for badminton matches. Plus, I like gymnastics, used to do ballet & took some Chinese traditional dancing lessons. I'm very flexible.

Musical Instruments:
Pipa (a chinese instrument with 4 strings) - Grade 1
Zhong Ran (another chinese instrument of 4 strings! What a coincident!) (but not playing anymore - too big!)
Keyboard

The Pipa is a Chinese lute. The first Pipa probably appeared around 105 B.C., when it was praised as much for its shape as its sound -- "hollow inside and solid outside in the image of heaven and earth, with a round bottom and straight handle symbolizing the relationship between Yin and Yang." The pipa has four strings and between 19 and 26 bamboo frets. Both in China and abroad, the pipa is commonly used as both a solo and an orchestral instrument.
