He Shijie, 23, born in North China's Shanxi Province, is an uploader of short science videos and has a loyal following of more than 9 million people on the Bilibili video platform.

Growing up, He’s life has been a standard portrait of a Generation Z youth. Born in 1999, He is a digital native and able to freely explore his personal interests.

At the end of 2020, He founded his own company, turning his interest into a career and becoming a college student entrepreneur.

He invented a star-tracking camera and created a "Happy Graduation! Forever Student!" motif across the night sky to bring his college career to a glittering conclusion.

He is a college graduate, a well-known vlogger and an entrepreneur. He sets sail on the sea of technology with his creativity, inspiration and diligence.
