How did you get interested in global issues?
My previous internship in the French Consulate General of Canton allowed me to be engaged in an intergovernmental project, namely Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment. This experience made me realise my interest in promoting global sustainability through governmental cooperation.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
The slogan of The Borgen Project is “We fight for the underdog” while its introduction video’s background music is “Dogs day are over” . This design/coincidence was actually one of the first reasons that encouraged me to join the team: It would be great to join the quest of making the world a better place with a team that actually cares for every detail in the world.
This fundraising is through a Chinese dancing busking! This activity is supported by the Chinese Dancing Society of the University of Edinburgh!
Members of the society will perform traditional and wonderful Chinese dances. We will try our best to deliver a great performance but we do need your support to make this fundraising endeavor a success !!
The donations will be used to:
- Support the fight against the global poverty
- Cover the basic expenditure of busking (including sound equipment and rehearsal venue rental )
SO COME ALONG AND SEE US DANCE ON ROYAL MILE AT 3PM ON THE 21st and 28th OF MAY!!
All members are performing 100% voluntarily. Some of them are committing their last weekend in Edinburgh before going back to China to dance; Some of them are squeezing their last free minute during the overwhelming exam week to support the event; Some of them are rehearsing their solo dances even during their holidays.
Most importantly, none of them have met me in person before this fundraising event. However, most of them signed up for the event within one hour after they heard about my proposal. Here, I want to express my sincerest gratitude to all the great and passionate acts: Thank you for making dancing the force to fight global poverty.
