Yesterday, at the Youth Assembly at the UN, I saw that there were alot of students from China. I got enough courage to talk to some of them (by the way, I speak a decent amount of Mandarin Chinese). As always, they were very kind. -Fast forward- Today as I was leaving, the student that I talked to ran up to me and told me to wait. He told me I was the first person to go speak to him and that he was very glad that I did so. (As the Chinese do) He gave me a gift. He said the notebook helped him remember math formulas and study English for school and that he hopes I find the notebook helpful as well. He noted that it was his favorite favorite notebook. At the end he added that if I were to visit China again, his doors are open for me.
