Student of Hendon School   16 years old

Hobbies: Reading

Participation in the project: Website and graphic design

During the volunteer work in Ming-Ai, they suggested me to do the project “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 some logo designs and a structure of website about this project.

 

Firstly, for the logo designs, I’ve to create some images that relate to these festivals and make them relevant to the project I was doing, such as the Qi-Ye Ba-Ye in Chinese ghost festival and pumpkins and candy for the western Halloween, or tang-yuan for Chinese Lantern festival and chocolates for St Valentine’s Day. It was really fun for me and associated with what I was learning in school.

 

For making the website, I drew a structure that shows all the links and contents for each page of website, which was quite interesting to me.

 

Overall, I learned some wonderful things during the volunteer work in Ming-Ai. As well as the interpersonal relationship and the skill of communication, I also learned useful knowledge about making and organizing websites. I feel so appreciated to have this opportunity to make myself more developed and responsible.
