Compared with my hometown, the education and health systems here in Shanghai are much better. And the public service is efficient. For example, you when you take a train, all you need is your ID card. And there are lots of things that can be done within a couple of days, because of the one-stop policy. However, I am not a local Shanghainese, so I found it hard to rent a house. Maybe the procedure of renting a house could be simpler.

The education in Shanghai has improved a lot. I used to think that students are studying mechanically with the sole goal of a high score. Later, I find that the students now are receiving quality-oriented education and learning more comprehensively. As a Shanghainese, I am very proud of our transport system. It is very convenient. I hope that our government can do more on providing affordable medical services.

In the past few years, the Shanghai government has done a great job in improving the quality of the environment. The street is cleaner and the air quality is better than four years ago. I immigrated to Australia four years ago. I came back to Shanghai this year and I found Shanghai has changed a lot. People are more civilized. They are less likely to speak loudly and most young people take care of the elderly by giving up their seats.

The compulsory garbage sorting policy had a great impact on my daily life in 2019. At the beginning of the implementation, I quite doubted that I could sort different sorts of garbage. However, many relevant services provided by government and news coverage from media gave us many details about garbage sorting. I think most citizens have adapted to the policy already. I wish that our government would reconsider the time of garbage delivery for those who work on night shift.
