During the volunteer work in Ming-Ai, they suggested me to do the projects about “East-West Festive Cultures”, which included the comparison of Chinese ghost festival and Halloween, or Chinese Lantern festival and St Valentine’ s Day .Then I have to make good structure of website to put these on the suitable positions.

 

From the above, I was learning. Firstly, for making website structure, I must use some researching skills to find out the good website page to get the ideas to create it. At the beginning, it was quite confused to me, because I had no ideas about which website could be wonderful example to get it. Then I tried to tell myself to not to worry too much, and be more confident to believe yourself. After that I made a great plan, I thought that I could find the all of the appropriable website I needed, and then I could have discussion with volunteer director. So from the above, it could make my personal growth, giving something back and more achievement. I could also get the friendship, support, bonding and feeling of belonging. I was so appreciate about having good chance to be a volunteer in Ming-Ai and have more development.
