On June 17th 2018, HEARTS and Rising Star Magazine hosted their fourth International Cultural Exchange and Environmental Protection Awareness Conference Focusing on Teens. The speakers ranged from both American and Chinese high schoolers, to university professors and business owners. They spoke about a myriad of topics such as extracurriculars, science experiments, and college applications, just to name a few. The morning conference focused on the differences in daily life between American born Chinese high schoolers and native Chinese students. The afternoon conference centered around environmental issues, including varying types of pollution and its’ adverse effects on the world around us.
Furthermore, the high school speakers presented in both English and Chinese to be inclusive. This extra effort definitely helped with turnout, with more than two hundred people attending. Afterwards, audience members left the conference with valuable knowledge of the American education system and of pressing environmental concerns.
