On May 8th, the 25th Living Library of XJTLU was successfully held at XJTLU museum on the 1th floor of Centre Building. The activity officially began at 6 PM. But before it started, everybody had arrived and sat in front of the big screen waiting for the hosts and guests to start the event.
The activity was attended by 8 outstanding guests from different fields. Chen Shao, a travel practitioner who traveled in 34 different countries, took us to appreciate local customs; Zeliang Zhao, a senior in the black belt of Jeet Kune Do, taught us the secrets of martial arts; Qianshan Chen, a “thinking maker” that brought his creative experience in technology innovation; Hao Xue, an imaginative Harvard freshman that analyzed the process of creating social network; PhD Zisong Ma who unifies science and art together shared his boundless expansion of knowledge; Jingxuan Bao, a diligent genius, delivered the significance of self-disciplined and modesty; Yingfei Zhuo, the youngest Baidu intern, told colorful stories about her internship; logical debate talent Jiahui Wang,shared the essence of debate.
After the introduction of these 8 living books, readers and guests were divided into several discussion groups to discuss and share their experiences and opinions. The small space was full of everyone’s laughter and chatter. All the participants and guests were gleaming with happiness and inspiration, and everyone really enjoyed the event and gave a good feedback.
Goethe once said: “Reading a good book is like talking to many noble people”. Similarly, talking to these noble and talented people is like reading thousands of wonderful books. I believe this sharing activity will be an unforgettable memory in everyone’s life. In the future, on the road of life, this experience will be like a lighthouse in the sea, guiding us to follow the direction of light to reach a distant shore.
