UMD: A Globally Connected University

Wenjie Li

Those who have worked with Wenjie Li praise her enthusiasm. The University of Maryland alumna was among the first cohort in the 2+2 program, where she spent her first two years as an undergraduate student at China Agricultural University and the last two at the University of Maryland’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

As an intern with AGNR’s International Programs, Li translated AGNR brochures from English into Chinese to help recruit students in the 2+2 program. Additionally, she translated AGNR’s web pages into Chinese.

Li, who currently works at Glodon in Beijing as an executive assistant to the President of Glodon, received her Bachelor’s Degree in Plant Sciences in 2010. She continued on with her education at the University of Maryland and received her Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture in 2013.

Recently, Li helped welcome University President Wallace Loh to China. Loh, who traveled to China with Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, visited Glodon where he was hosted by Chairman Diao Zhizhong while Li translated.

Through Li’s experiences, she has become a certified translator and has been involved in numerous projects like Potomac Heritage Trail and Green Roofs and Green Walls.
