“Meet your Student” event brings sponsors and students together
Nearly 400 people joined Shanghai Sunrise “Meet Your Student” event on a very sunny spring day. New sponsors had the chance to see their students for the first time and those who had already met their students before had an opportunity to catch up with them again.
In three sessions, more than 180 high school and university students came face to face with the person who enables them to pursue their education. At each session, sponsor speakers from Bartra Wealth Advisors, Education for Humanity, GM China Women Council and Hays Recruitment gave very inspiring speeches. All of them encouraged the students to study hard and to strive towards achieving their career aspirations.
For the first time this year students took the stage as well. On behalf of their fellow students three young leaders expressed their sincere gratitude to their sponsors, Shanghai Sunrise and their teachers. During the events, two female students performed songs in front of receptive audience, expressing their thankfulness through their singing.
Among our partners vice president Mr. Fang Guoping from the Shanghai Charity Foundation and co-workers from each district joined this event to support us.
We also want to thank the employees of our sponsor Hermes-OTTO who made scarves for our students and NAIS volunteers who prepared backpacks filled with snacks for the newly enrolled students. After their long journey to our event venue this was a pleasant surprise.
The entire Shanghai Sunrise team is glad everyone had such a great time and looks forward to the next occasion to bring students and their sponsors together.
