“EMLex students are proud of their home universities” Episode 5
Die EMLex-Studierenden der Tullio-De-Mauro-Kohorte und der Maria-Moliner-Kohorte haben eine kleine Socialmedia-Serie zusammengestellt: “EMLex students are proud of their home universities”.
In der 5. Episode erzählen uns Chien-An, Ksenia und Lanfeng von ihrem Studium an der Uniwersytet Śląski w Katowicach (US, Katowice, Poland):
“I am proud of my home university because I have a ‘yuán fèn’ with it. ‘Yuán fèn’ (緣分) is a cultural concept in East Asia, rooting from Buddhism, which, depending on context, translates into ‘destiny’, ‘coincidence’, or ‘bond among people’. Getting a job, having acquaintances or even relationships, being infected with a virus, being fond of EMLex or the US: all are explicable based on this concept. It would be very difficult to compile a dictionary entry for ‘yuán fèn’, but this does not prevent me from proudly proclaiming: I have a ‘yuán fèn’ with this university, this city, this country!” (Chien-An)
“I am proud of my home university because of its wonderful people.” (Ksenia)
“I am proud of my home university because it witnesses how I react to the hardness: from panic to composedness.” (Lanfeng)
