Participation in the project: Interviews

 

In this project, I interviewed a number of people from all walks of life. Everybody was very generous and was happy to share with me their personal experience of the Chinese and Western festivals.  Through their eyes, I was able to understand my culture a bit more.

 

To me the end products of the project are very meaningful; Ming ai would create a website together with teaching materials and copies of a DVD and information leaflet to local schools and libraries, I hope this would encourage culture integration, also introduce the beauty of the Chinese culture to mainstream schools.

 

The project provides me invaluable experience and I am very proud to be part of it.
