U.S.-China Health Summit

video and webinar reflection articles are in Chinese

In the past two months, I have gained a lot from my internship at the U.S.-China Health Summit. Starting from scratch, I began to write articles as well as design the functional framework for the Summit’s official account, and organize our group members to update the Summit website. Every task has given me experience in different fields, and the feeling of teamwork power. If the internship is compared to a game, not only can you improve your skills, but also discover the skills you never tried before. Being a member of the Summit team in Summer 2020 is indeed full of joy and felicity: joy for meeting many new friends, felicity for achieving common goals. What I felt in this internship is far from that. At the Summit, you will see young people lighting themselves into sparks to brighten up the global health sky and build themselves into rocks to construct a bridge for inclusive exchanges in the world!
