                                            With the belief that only by arming themselves with knowledge and necessary skills, could the contemporary Chinese youth lay a solid foundation for their futures, Mao made great efforts in learning different expertise, passing various professional tests and attending all kinds of competitions.

                                            A Bright Star in the Night Sky: Behaving Elegantly with Higher Aims in International Arenas

                                            Supported by the scholarship project set by Jiangsu Provincial government, Mao, as a freshman of Soochow University, started her study at the Harvard University, where she learned the system regarding liberal studies.

In front of the exhibition booth, she publicized the traditional culture of China by introducing those eye-catching Suzhou embroideries and folding fans she brought. In the talent competition held afterwards, she organized a fan dance in cheongsam by utilizing the characteristics of folk dances, which earned the praises of the youngsters from different countries. During the section of Mock Trial, she debated fiercely with those native English speakers, and won the lawsuit by guarding her arguments with passionate explanations and reasonable solutions. The elegant behaviors and convincing arguments of Mao not only manifest the appropriate attitudes of contemporary youth in China, but explains her utmost efforts and the deep considerations towards the affairs at home and abroad.


                                            As one of the youth delegate of China, Mao attended the APEC summit held in the Philippines in November 2015 with President Xi Jinping.

We youngsters should be far-sighted and always concerned about the affairs regarding the development of the nation and the world. By manifesting proper attitudes in international arenas, we should contribute to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation." Mao proved the spirits and manners of contemporary youth in China with her words and actions, and promoted her talents and developments in these international events.



                                            A Kind Volunteer: Balancing Talent with Morality

                                            Adhering to the school motto of "Unto a Full-Grown Man", Mao continued to cultivate her specialities and interests during the college days. She served as the host of the graduation party of Dongwu Business School, and won a golden prize for college students in the first Campus Dancing Competition of Suzhou, as a performer of the group dance "Nanjing ยท Light". Being a classics enthusiast, she enjoyed the process of communicating with the wise in books. Meanwhile, she also like to better her temperament in those picturesque sceneries by attending outdoor activities.


                                            Following the college motto of "Preparing talents for the country, and helping others as if help oneself", Mao is always ready to be a volunteer in different events and activities. She served as a volunteered interpreter in the EU-China International Literary Festival, and moderated several reading meetings themed the works of European and American writers. As a member of the organizing team of TEDx Suzhou and a volunteered propagator of the public cultural undertakings, Mao has hosted and organized many salons and lectures open to the general public. As a volunteered teacher in the primary school of Xinyi Village specially set for the children of rural migrant workers at the suburb of Suzhou, she is responsible to teach them singing and piano-playing. Her excellent performances in the International Folk Music Festival won her the honor of "An Excellent Volunteer". In addition, the sense of justice and responsibility also urged her to help a stroked passenger on a bus. By recording the site with camera and all the necessary information required by the hospital, her calmness and kindness was reported by Suzhou TV station. Mao always bears a warm attitude when getting along with people, and her warmth and kind considerations often delight all the peers around.


                                            In terms of her own motto, Mao prefers the four ontological goals for intellectuals set by Zhang Zai, a Chinese philosopher in the Norther Song Dynasty, namely, "to build up the manifestations of Heaven and Earth's spirit, to build up good life for the populace, to develop past sages' endangered scholarships, and to open up eternal peace." With great aspirations and deep concerns towards the affairs at home and abroad, Mao always sets strict demands on herself. By staying true to the original self and making progresses with great diligence and efforts, Mao is now marching onto bigger stages steadily, bearing the objectives of contributing to the development of the community and the country.
