Our Team Behind the Scene

Special thanks to our members behind the scenes! Without the superb team, the event would not be successful. When speakers worked on their speeches, other members focused on their jobs. Whether it was revising speeches or editing pictures and videos, not a single task was easy, but all of us enjoyed the process.


准备 Preparation

We practiced till the last moment of the show, making sure the event would run smoothly.


We also practiced nonstop while waiting backstage.


Backstage 后台


Achieving success in such a big event was not easy. But we did it! Even though much of the audience was unable to attend due to COVID restrictions, the applause from the crowd were still loud and powerful.


A Perfect Ending 完美落幕
