Release time:2021-12-17      Author:Wang Mengnan

The 2nd“Stories of China Retold in English” event, co-hosted by China Education Television and New Channel International Education Group recently came to an end. More than 20 cities set sub-contest venues, attracting over 170,000 contestants around the country. Lan Yilin, an HQU undergraduate from the broadcasting and hosting class of 2023 of the School of Journalism and communication, entered the national finals with the top award in the Southeast sub-contest area (covering Zhejiang and Fujian provinces) and was ranked Top 12 in the national final. (Lan’s instructors: Sun Yini, Deng Suqing, and Zhong Yuxin).

In the story-retelling, Lan creatively adapted the given story, vividly presenting to the audience with cartoon puppets how China’s BeiDou Navigation Satellite System was applied to help the herdsmen in Xinjiang.

In the prepared speech themed on “China Miracle”, Lan shared the story of Li Xin, an Angolan who once studied at the College of Civil Engineering of HQU. She highlighted how Li’s learning experiences in China helped him become an engineer and assist Angola in modernizing its cities. Stories like this demonstrate China’s mission, responsibility and action in building the community with a shared future for mankind, which itself is the “China Miracle” in the process of educational globalization.

In the talent show, Lan, dressed in Hanfu (traditional Han Chinese clothing), played the Chinese classical music “Yuzhou Changwan” (Fishing Boat in the Evening) on the flute. Lan’s performance conveyed the yearning and the joy of the working people for a good harvest, which could relate to people across national boundaries.
