“Western Finance has a quiet environment and is very suitable for learning. When I walked into the campus, my heart suddenly calmed down.” Sitting in the last row of the Jingshi Building Ladder Classroom at Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, 26-year-old Wang Wei is attending the 2021 School of Finance and Economics class meeting. Different from the excitement of most freshmen, he was very calm, but listened to the instructor to introduce the school and college overview, dormitory safety, student management regulations, and freshman class selection suggestions. He had experienced all this 8 years ago.
Previously, the story of the takeaway rider Wang Wei became popular on the Internet. He was born in Xiangyang, Hubei. He was admitted to the China Agricultural University majoring in Food Science and Engineering in 2013. He dropped out of school for personal reasons in 2017 and worked in Beijing, Guangzhou, Hubei and other places. In 2021, he chose to re-enter the college entrance examination and achieved an excellent score of 623. He was admitted to the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics majoring in finance.

“I did waste eight years, and all the feelings of my growth now are nothing but the realities ahead.” Wang Wei reflected in an interview with a reporter from Chinanews.com, 2013 After entering the university in 1 year, the high school performance-based evaluation system became more diversified. He seemed to lose his position all of a sudden. The huge gap made him unable to feel the “sense of existence”, so he was very depressed, lost, and confused.
For a long period of time in his sophomore year, Wang Wei invested more than 10 hours in computer games every day, and therefore turned the day and night upside down and wasted his studies. In 2017, because of too many courses left, Wang Wei received a notice of withdrawal from the school. “At first I realized it was very dangerous, but at that time I felt like I could mix it for a day. When I received the withdrawal notice, I knew I couldn’t cheat myself.”
After dropping out, Wang Wei successively worked as a primary school tutor and porter in a garment factory. He gradually discovered that his academic qualifications largely restricted his job options, and the seeds of repetition continued to germinate in his heart. In June last year, after the epidemic was effectively controlled, Wang Wei entered the “more work, more reward” food delivery industry, and he planned to save himself a tuition fee.
Unexpectedly, Wang Wei encountered setbacks on his first day in the industry. When delivering the first order of takeaway, Wang Wei was fined 20 yuan by the traffic police for being retrograde, and criticized and educated on the spot, and therefore delayed subsequent orders. “I was fined for not earning a penny at that time, and I wanted to give up.” But when I woke up the next morning, thinking about the 1,000 yuan he spent on renting a car, renting batteries and buying equipment, he decided to “try again. try”.

Wang Wei is good at observing, analyzing, and summarizing. He quickly became familiar with meal delivery routes and cycling techniques, and can work 14 to 16 hours a day. In the longest working time, he worked from 6 am to 3 am the next day. His order volume for that month was ranked fourth among more than 100 people’s takeaway sites. On average, he can run 30 to 40 orders a day and earn more than 5,000 yuan a month.
While working as a takeaway rider, Wang Wei tried to use fragmented time to learn, but because of the low efficiency, he gave up the idea of ”part-time work and part-study” and decided to go to the third grade (14) class of Tianjiabing Middle School in Xiangyang City Repeat and prepare for the exam. “The experience of delivering food has also honed my patience and physical stamina. I can guarantee to study efficiently throughout the day.”
From late September 2020 to June 2021, he only gave himself 240 Quickly review high school knowledge every day. He makes full use of the study time from 6 am to 22:00 every day during the school period to analyze his strong and weak subjects and conduct targeted training. Before re-reading, Wang Wei once tested his level on the high-level examination papers. Because he felt that mathematics was “more difficult”, he spent 80% of his time preparing for the test on mathematics training.
“The feeling of finding the results in the second college entrance examination was different from the first time. At that moment, I found my confidence again.” In the early morning of June 25, Wang Wei checked his college entrance examination results and his total score. 623 points. He shared the screenshots of his scores with his relatives, friends, teachers, and also sent them to the rider group to share his joy. The next day, he returned to his post and continued to deliver food. He did not quit his job until mid-August when he was ready to report to the school.
“When I sit in the classroom, I don’t think of myself 8 years ago. I am more willing to devote myself to the present than to spend my precious time in regret or remembering the past.” After a busy day, Wang Wei was sitting in the dormitory of Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, looking forward to his future. He believes that he will never return to his previous “abandoned” state. Earlier, he wrote on Weibo: Scrap iron was thrown into the furnace and forged, and the prodigal son turned around again. (End)
