He was dispatched to an African country. After years of hard work, He committed two weeks, talked the bank manager into accepting the first Chinese company to be the 15 premiere customers. He became county manager of first project of  African country to make full payment before guarantee. Worked at a state owned company for 4.5 years aboard, with no burden of money has taught him to watch other people’s emotion before say something.  

 

Life in Africa was meaningful as well, lived with local village near the beach, and learned fishing, local cuisine. He also met a couple of oenologist to learn fun things of the ocean.

Prepared Speech #2

Speaker 2:

Lu Qi

Evaluator:

Una

Project No.6: Vocal Variety

Speech Title: Miracles

Do You believe miracles?

Lu Qi believes in miracles, something happened were against the odd, and there maybe someone, something up there secretly helping her.

In 2003 summer, she got admitted by her dream school Tinghua university, and she was very surprised because she believed she didn’t do well in the exams. The family celebrated by visiting their favorite noodle shop, and surprisingly the invoice/fapiao won 500 yuan lucky award. Two big surprises happened in a row. It’s must be a miracle.

In 2001, when the family  visit Leshan and saw a fortune teller aka a monk, after carefully read Lu Qi’s Bazi (personal information), the monk revealed to her mother she will be in an accident in two month and it’s related to transport. Of course the monk had solution for this, which cost 800 yuan. Had seen such kind of tricks, she and her mother didn’t pay for the cure.

Nothing happened in the next two month. One day, her mother bumped into another monk who told her the same thing, but the reason no accident happened was because Lu lost her bike. She did lost a bike.

 Miracles are miss interpretation of probability by bias memory and good wishes.

She studied hard for exams, and the 500 yuan fapiao is only out of many fapiao buried in the memory. Everyone was expecting she lost her bike to save her from accident, she believed the story.

Believe in miracles means good things can happen to her, if well behave, will get good result in return. Believe in miracle give hope when you were at your down point and remember these good memories.
