CIBC District Vice President Alex Fan said if you are not improving yourself and not ready to have the job interview that you have been longing for so long, and then don’t expect the company will hire you. You can always improve yourself by reading books and increasing your professional skills and knowledge. For every task, it is necessary to fully prepare yourself ahead of time. No matter how many difficulties you are facing, just work on it and you will see the result one day!

Soar to Greater Heights

It was such an honor to hear three keynote speakers to share their precious life experiences with us last Friday. As an audience, I feel deeply attached and touched by these speakers. Now, I want to recall the seminar and share with you all here.

The first speaker is B.C. Lee, the Former Vancouver City Councillor. He was first elected as Vancouver City Councillor in 2008. Before that, he was a famous political commentator. He call him self as “Catholic Buddhist’, he explains he doesn’t want to limit his region to one but anyone who has religion belief should obey the religions rules or standards. Now, he is engaging himself with some music shows in Vancouver. It seems there is no certain refrain in his life, he was a host, a pop singer and he is still open minded about new things in life. You may not believe what has happened to him in the last few years. Here is the story that he shared with us in the seminar. B.C. Life is not easy as it meant to be. He said it was tough to fight cancer when he was just being nominated as provincial senator that he had prepared it for so long. But he had to give it up because he knew that he can only contribute more to the community when his body is recovered. Now, we are happy for B.C. Lee because his body is totally recovered and he is ready to take the next step in his political career.

The second speaker is Anne Kang, who is known as Current Burnaby City Councillor. Anne Kang was elected as the youngest city Councillor in 2008. At that time, she was only 28. She is still a elementary school music teacher and a Councillor. She describes it was a huge change when she decided to jump into politician, especially for a young lady at that time. Now, she is committing herself in community building and environment sustainability. The biggest motivation for her in life is curiosity. Because she want to do so many things for the local community, and she just can’t wait to get up in the morning and doing the work. Like what she says “only after experiencing critical environment and temperature, coal can become diamonds.” People become stronger when they experience more difficulties.

The third speaker is Simon Fraser University Communication Professor Dr. Xing. He worked in the biggest journalist institution in China for 10 years. But he gave up his journalist future because he wants to go abroad to study politics. So he came to Canada alone and start his study. For some reason, He changed his major from politics to communication because he thought communication would be easier. However, It takes 7 years for him to finish his PHD degree. From his experience, it is hard to imagine that he abandoned so many things just for a goal he was going to pursuing . Once he set the goal, and he just keep doing it . Like what he said ” The way ahead is long; I see no ending, yet high and low I’ll search with my will unbending. ”

I wish by sharing all of three speakers stories to motivate us : do not feel frustrated when you are facing difficulties in life, because you know one day you will be on the top of mountain and glance the amazing view!
