I have a passion for music. One of the most precious memories of my life as a foreign student at Shenzhen University (SZU) is the happy time with the International Choir.
First of all, I would like to say the reason why I decided to come to China to study is actually very simple. One day I happened to notice the instruction of a shower gel bottle uses three languages, that were Thai, English and Chinese.
I have been to many interesting countries and cities in the world. Some of them are very technologically advanced, and some of them have very unique cultures.
In the twinkling of an eye, I have turned to be a graduate from a freshman. I still remember that when I first arrived in Nanjing in the autumn of 2018, the teachers of the school picked us up in the airport warmly, giving us the first ray of sunshine in a foreign country.
The river of time never stops its flow. The spring just comes to an end, the heatwave of summer pours in one after another –suddenly I realized that time is really not durable.
Since I was a child, the neighboring country China has always appealed to me. I never thought that when I grew up, I would actually come to China because of invitation from work. It was the fall of 2018.
I am an international student from Palestine. I would like to share with you the story of my beautiful encounter with China.
I am from Italy and my Chinese name is Liu Yilong. I named myself “Yilong” because “Yi” represents Italy and “long (dragon)” is a symbol of the Chinese nation.
Travel has long been important to me. It is a passion that started through reading in my early school days and has stayed with me throughout my life.
As China’s composite national strength and international influence continue to grow, scholars around the world are paying more attentions to this country.
