Rongdong Yan, a representative of outstanding international undergraduates from Argentina, spoke on behalf of all international students. He shared his learning experience and expressed warm congratulations and best wishes to the graduating international senior students.

First, Rongdong Yan warmly wished the senior students who were about to leave the campus to embrace their new life journey with beautiful memories. Then, he shared his insights into university life. He mentioned that when he first entered university, the pressure of studying and self-doubt put him in a difficult situation.

However, running helped him find a balance between life and study. Through continuous running training, he learned to enjoy the process rather than obsessing over the results. Starting from a three-kilometer run, he eventually participated in the Wuhan Marathon, gradually freeing himself from inner constraints. He emphasized that as long as the first step is taken, the end is no longer far away, and perseverance will lead to the goal. In addition, Rongdong Yan mentioned that he joined the HUST running group, ran with his classmates at East Lake, and trained at the playground, which allowed him to make friends with many different majors and broadened his horizons. He encouraged everyone not to limit themselves to studying but to enrich their university life, cultivate hobbies, make close friends, and even experience a beautiful love story, making their university life colorful. At the end of his sharing, Rongdong Yan recalled his university days, describing the long exam months and the brief moments of running on the playground, interesting classes, cities he visited, budding love, and the anticipation of tomorrow. These moments together composed his unique university life. He hoped everyone could leave unique memories in university and wished the senior students to embark on a new chapter that was even more vibrant than summer.


Other graduates also gave short speeches of 5-10 minutes, sharing their stories of growth and outlook for the future. They recalled the growth process of studying in HUST, from novice first-year students when they first entered the university to mature graduates. They also shared their gains and experiences in the study, club activities, internships, and social practices, describing the experiences of overcoming academic challenges, adapting to new environments, or solving difficulties in life. At the same time, they summarized the knowledge and skills they have learned and the personal qualities they have improved, reflecting on their shortcomings during their university time. They expressed their expectations for continuous improvement in the future. Some students introduced their plans after graduation, such as pursuing further studies, looking for a job, starting a business, and expressing their expectations and goals for their future careers. The graduates' speeches showed their personal growth and bright vision for the future, and they were also full of deep feelings for HUST, the School, faculty, and classmates.

After the special graduation sharing session, all the participants took a group photo before Chairman Mao's statue in front of the No.1 South Building. Then, the students communicated, wished each other well, and exchanged contact information. Throughout the activity, laughter and tears were intertwined, and the friendship between faculty and fellow students was further sublimated at this particular moment.
