Mrs. Zhang was born in China, and joined NTT in 2009. She gave birth to her first child in 2013. After returning from maternity leave, she made use of NTT's reduced working hours system to balance child rearing with her research activities. She believes that this environment, which allows her to give 100% both at home and at work, has contributed directly to her growth as a researcher.

I have been interested in Japan since I was very young. My father had experience studying in Japan, and he told me many stories about his time here. He told me how trains ran everywhere, how the streets were so clean, and how the air was so pure. Just by listening to my father's stories, my interest in this wonderful country grew ever stronger. Later, I graduated from high school and was overjoyed to get accepted by a Japanese university. As I studied at my university in Japan, I learned more about Japan's technological prowess. Eventually, I came to realize that I wanted to work in the field of environmental technology at a Japanese corporation.

As a foreigner working in Japan, of course I was worried about using Japanese in the workplace. However, an alumnus of mine who had worked at NTT Laboratories told me that his coworkers could speak English, and also responded to him politely in Japanese, so I had nothing to worry about. With that in mind, I knew that I could make it at NTT if only I tried. But even more important in my decision to work here was the opportunity to join top level researchers in studying environmental impact reduction using ICT. Besides, Japanese language training was available to me once I joined the company.
