大家好！我是九號佳麗邵錦玉。我生長於閩江邊的福州。十一歲的時候， 我與家人移名來美國。我們一直都住在佛羅里達州直到到我大學畢業。我畢業於佛羅里達州州立大學工程系， 現在在紐約就職於一家跨國技術諮詢企業。因為在中國於美國都有成長的經歷， 所以我對中西方文化都有一定的理解。我從小就喜歡唱歌。在業餘的時間裡， 我也喜歡閱讀，做義工， 練瑜伽， 和運動。從小我就夢想有一天能站在選美的舞台上。能參加這次比賽對我來講是夢想成真。因此我十分珍惜這次機會。我希望能通過這個舞台展現出最棒的自己。
Hello everyone! I'm contestant number nine. My name is Jinyu Shao. I was born and raised along the Min River in Fuzhou, China. I moved to the United States when I was eleven years old. We had lived in Florida after I graduated from college. I studied engineering at the University of Florida and now work for a technology consulting firm in New York City. Having spend almost equal parts of my life in both China and the US, I have learned to appreciate both cultures. I enjoy singing and have been singing as long as I can remember. During my spare time, I like to read, volunteer, practice yoga and exercise to stay active. I've always dreamed of participating in a pageant since I was a little girl. Being part of this pageant is a dream come true for me. I'm very grateful for this opportunity and I want to make the most out of it by giving the best of myself.
