CHENGDU, Feb. 4 (Xinhua) -- Zeng Xi, a graduate of mathematics from a university in Toronto of Canada, chose to make a living in the flower arrangement industry with artistic creations in Chengdu, southwest China's Sichuan Province. This decision went against her parents' wish of her working in a financial institution.

While studying abroad, Zeng saw the tremendous market potential for flower arrangements in China when she came back home. Having tried out with a studio of flower arrangement in Hong Kong in south China in 2018, Zeng brought her rich experience back to her hometown in Chengdu and started to initiate a nationwide business network in 2019.

Zeng wishes to make her fair share of contribution to the development of the art and creative sector in her homeland.
