Di­ver­sity un­der one roof

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL HIGHER EDUCATION -

It was an eclec­tic ex­trav­a­ganza that brings with it a con­stel­la­tion of cul­tures, plethora of events, cre­ative minds and tal­ents and a gamut of glam­our.

the Limkok­wing Cul­tural Fes­ti­val was a wor­thy cel­e­bra­tion of the univer­sity’s unity in di­ver­sity tag.

It was a cel­e­bra­tion of har­mony in the di­ver­sity of cul­tures, mu­sic and dance with an ar­ray of in­ter­na­tional del­i­ca­cies.

the fes­tiv­i­ties were held right in the heart of the univer­sity in Cy­ber­jaya and it brought to­gether stu­dents from al­most 165 coun­tries who got to ex­pe­ri­ence unique sounds, food and a taste of al­most all of the world’s coun­tries in one place.

Ev­ery­one had the chance to see, taste, hear, lis­ten and ex­pe­ri­ence when stu­dents across the globe shared their views and spread the mes­sage of peace, unity and in­ter­cul­tural har­mony.

the bazaar con­sisted of 53 booths – each rep­re­sent­ing a par­tic­u­lar coun­try and show­cas­ing unique crafts or food of the re­spec­tive coun­tries.

the fes­ti­val, which touched the hearts of ev­ery­one present, was purely a stu­dent-run ini­tia­tive by the distin­guished In­ter­na­tional Stu­dent Am­bas­sadors.

Or­gan­is­ing chair­man and In­te­rior Ar­chi­tec­ture stu­dent David Gituen Mar­cus said: “the or­gan­is­ing of this event just shows how much sup­port the univer­sity has pro­vided to our in­di­vid­ual com­mu­ni­ties.”

“this is one of the most im­por­tant an­nual events on our cam­pus,” said Limkok­wing’s vice-pres­i­dent of Brand, Cre­ativ­ity and talent De­vel­op­ment Datuk tiffan­nee Marie Lim.

“It is im­por­tant that we re­mem­ber to cel­e­brate our strengths and our val­ues. Di­ver­sity re­mains one of Limkok­wing’s high­est pri­or­i­ties.”

Pro­ceeds from the sales will go to­wards the univer­sity’s Heal the World Foun­da­tion, which has helped raise funds for Haiti’s earthquake, Pak­istan’s floods, and is now well on its way to re­build­ing a chil­dren’s school for 300 in San Remin­gio, Cebu, which was de­stroyed by typhoon Haiyan.
