Such unexpected surprises have thrilled her as if she was connected with ancient people across time and space.

With the country focusing heavily on the popularization of cultural relics and TV programs, such as Masters in the Forbidden City gaining wide acclaim, over the years, the public has shown an increasingly strong interest in the field.

"Ancient Chinese civilization has left behind a vast number of books, many of which require restoration before they can see the light of day again," Song says.

Song has joined the talent development team and entered the campus with her experienced colleagues to deliver lectures, carry out training, and guide college students looking to gain practical experience.

"It's important to try to understand an industry from as many aspects as possible, before you decide if it's just a fleeting interest or a burning passion," Song says.

"Hopefully, I can be of some help in inspiring more young people to find their lifelong passion in the field of cultural heritage preservation."
