After graduation from Kiangsu and Chekiang Kindergarten and Nursery, Yi Shu studied at Sir Ellis Kadoorie (Sookunpo) Primary Schooland, subsequently, Ho Tung Technical School For Girls (later known as Hotung Secondary School). She was a rather studious pupil, and got two distinctions and two credits in the HKCEEexamination. In 1964, Yu Shi had completed her studies in her secondary school; her schoolmistress gave her a comment: "She was touchy, emotional, and easy to get into a lather…" Consequently, her mother re-named her as Ni Rong (倪容) (容 literally means "to tolerate"), in the hope of Yi Shu could become more calm and generous.
She had been a journalist of "
Ming Pao" at the age of 17 after graduation from her secondary school. When she was 27, she went to Manchesterstudy Hotel Management. She had been a PR manager of a hotel in Taiwan, and a top official of Information Services Departmentin Hong Kong, as well as a screenwriter.
