---------------- The Three valuable Presents from CSP 8 -----------------
We, a group of overseas youths who come to China for cultural exchange programme have splendidly spent our ten compacted days. Everyday was a fun filled and wonderful day for us. Through these, i have gained three valuable presents.
My very first present received is Friendship. The journey has provided me a great opportunity to form a long lasting bond with people from different cultural background and country. These friendships have been cemented over our shared experiences and cultures during these 10 days.
Before i came here, i was not very familiar with China's culture, society and economic development. However, as a Chinese descendent, i would like to uncover as well as discover China and its culture where my ancestors had lived before. Bringing this hope and feelings, i came here to find my roots. In China there is one famous adage: "Experience is the best Teacher". Now, stepping my foot on the ground who has breed my roots, i am able to feel the broad and profound of Her history and culture. Seeing Her great growth and success, it has given me my second present.
The third and also my largest present: Nowadays, as we have entered into the world of globalization, and receiving the challenges of the diverse culture and background from other countries, it is very important that we need to learn and accept the cultural differences in order to hold up our competitiveness in the business world. At the same time, i feel that we have to understand our culture in depth, where we would not be submerged by the global development and lose our roots. This journey has given me the biggest comprehension.
In conclusion, i would like to send my deepest thanks to the support of the sponsors, donors and the organizing committee of CSP8, to have granted me three valuable presents to bring home. I believe that everyone will be sharing these presents with your loved ones, and they will be our most treasured assets, which would accompany us on our path of life. I am hereby hoping that our friendship among the delegates will last forever.
