Coordinator - Wenwen Qu

Wenwen Qu - Dunedin Newcomers Network

My name is Wenwen, and I am the new Dunedin Newcomers Network Coordinator!

I come from China. My family, my husband and my daughter (turning to 4), moved to Dunedin 3 years ago. Before I moved to NZ, I spent my professional life in medicine. I had an experience of 3 year’s PhD study in the Netherlands, which is also a beautiful friendly country full of freedom. After that I worked as a gynecologist in the of west China.

Dunedin is an amazing city, rich in history and culture with a great variety of facilities, parks, communities, and people. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Together, we will have a chance to make new friends, connect with the fast growing community. I love helping people, making new friends. This is why I have joined the Newcomers Network as Volunteer Coordinator. I look forward to hearing from you!

I look forward to hearing from you!
