Participation in the project: Research and PowerPoint presentation.

 

During my year 10 work experience in Ming-Ai, I participated in the “East-West Festive Cultures” project. I did research on the comparison of Halloween and Chinese ghost month, St Valentine's Day and Chinese Lantern festival. During the process, I discovered something that I did not know before including the origins and interesting stories behind those festivals. I was also impressed by the similarities and differences between East and West festivals.

 

I discovered that many people don’t pay much attention on the environmental issue when they celebrate the festivals. But I truly believe that we can practice festival customs and protect the environment at the same time. Therefore in my PowerPoint presentation, I gave some suggestions for that.

 

After finished the research, I did have a chance to give PowerPoint presentations to my colleagues in Ming-Ai. I was so happy that I could practice my analytical skills and presentation skills and thank you for everyone who gave me support and encouragement.

 

To conclude, I learned many interesting and precious things during my year 10 work experience in Ming-Ai. I was happy to participate in this project and enjoyed so much working as a volunteer.
