|Professor Cheng shared some thoughts at the|
Scholarship Presentation Ceremony,
“I firmly believe in education, as education can change one’s life. It can also enable us to accomplish whatever vision and mission we have.
We should all try our best to make use of our talent to make contributions to society, no matter how big or small. We only live once. Someday, when we look back, we should be satisfied that we made a tiny footprint to help others.
The first two awardees of this Scholarship, Mr Gao Chang (left) and Mr Gu De-Run (right), will partake in an academic exchange at the University of California, Los Angeles in early 2017.
