Hello Shuai
 
Shanghai and Beijing are both major chartering centres (these days). I visit both often.
 
If is was in your position I would look for a good 'maritime degree' and also try and complete the ICS shipbroking exams.
 
The fact that you already have good written English is a excellent start for becoming a shipbroker. China is indeed booming and an exciting place to be.
 
Try reading 'Inside Shipbroking' where I give some excellent tips for on how to leverage your time at university.
 
Hope this helps
 
Cheers
VS
