Changjiang Weekly - - SOCIETY - By Huang Qi

An Yueqi is a Ph.D. can­di­date at Huazhong Agri­cul­tural Uni­ver­sity and is now en­gaged in a joint Ph.D. pro­gram, study­ing at Ore­gon State Uni­ver­sity in the U.S. She was once the ex­ec­u­tive vice leader of the Benyu Vol­un­teer Ser­vice Team of the uni­ver­sity and taught chil­dren in Guizhou for one year. Even though she is now study­ing thou­sands of miles away in the U.S., she tries to help the chil­dren she once taught in some other ways.

Dur­ing her doc­toral study in China, An or­ga­nized her class­mates to write let­ters to the chil­dren, en­cour­ag­ing them to study hard. While in the U.S., An did some spe­cial­ized com­par­a­tive anal­y­sis of vol­un­teer ser­vice be­tween China and the U.S. She posted her study re­sults on the of­fi­cial web­site of Huazhong Agri­cul­tural Uni­ver­sity to en­cour­age more peo­ple to join in the vol­un­teer ser­vice.
