WCGU student volunteers blossoming for Fortune
From December 6-8, the 2017 Fortune Global Forum was held in Guangzhou. This Forum is one of the prominent international events held in China after the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Guangzhou University serves the forum by contributing 185 student volunteers to work in the areas of public transportation, hotel and tour, news and communication, security, and concierge. GU students’ performance have won the Forum guests’ compliments and caught a spotlight from the press home and abroad.
Eighteen WCGU students (approximately 10% of the total GU volunteers ) were chosen to represent GU volunteers. Equipped with excellent intercultural communication and fluent language skills, WCGU students worked diligently, acted elegantly, and served creatively for the success of the Fortune Global Forum.
According to statistics, fifteen WCGU students out of 111 GU volunteers (14%) have been awarded the title of Volunteer Start by the Organizing Committee of the forum as a token of appreciation for their outstanding services . The figure is the highest among all of the schools of GU. Zhang Jinglin, an economics student of the 2015 cohort and the chairwoman of WCGU Student Union, was shining in the protocol work to receive foreign VIP guests and won a particular media attention. As WCGU holds high the spirit of cultivating women for international leadership and serving the world, its students are truly blossoming in this year’s forum.
