In October 2017, UCSD Tzu Ching had an officer retreat planned by their alumni. At the retreat, we learned the sign language for the song “One Family” and recorded a video of the performance!

Fun Fact: This video was played at a Tzu Chi event held in Toronto for the new immigrants from the Middle East.

See that news feature of that event here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f74XW-p2L9k (Chinese Only – sorry! )

The Tzu Chi Education mission aims at nurturing leaders for the world.

Since 2011, Tzu Chi Educational Foundation began hosting the annual “Tzu Chi Summer Camp USA” in California. The program aims to provide students with a unique study abroad experience by allowing students to study in the American educational system, experience the diverse culture, and form a global network. In addition to language courses given by the California State Polytechnic University Extended University, site tours and trips are also arranged in both Southern and Northern California. Through the high-quality learning environment, students broaden their horizons and solidify their goals for the future, and in turn become cultivated leaders of the world.

Weekly Wisdom Reflection by Jessica Yeung:

Life is a journey. Along the way, you meet many teachers who teach you different things. How you speculate a teacher if they are good are not is speculative, but many can agree that those who had a positive impression and great explanations of their subject are the ones that helped them the most with career-oriented goals. Also, in between, you have opportunities to meet more people to share your experiences and you learn who you can trust during happy and in hard times. Knowing that you have someone or a group of people you care about who cares about you, such as a friend or family, can be the greatest source of support towards a fulfilling journey. I’d encourage y’all to think positively and meet more amazing people.

Weekly Wisdom Reflection by Kevin:

I think this aphorism is powerful for anyone in any situation. It tells us to work on everything and give it your all, no matter what you do. In order to succeed, you have to spend the effort to do what you want to do. If you do something inadequately, you will never get the result you want and feel frustrated as a result. I know that personally during high school I didn’t really care much about school and just did the bare minimum to get by. As a result, I was unable to get into my dream school. Only when you put time and effort into doing what you love and doing it right will you get the result you want. Quality over quantity is the key to this aphorism, make sure to do the things you do right, not take on too many things and do them poorly.
