is one of them. “If we want to build cultural confidence, and want to
make our voice heard by the world, we have got to change,” Liu said. Her opinions were th上海千花坊女神会所

The students’ enthusiasm deeply impressed Professor Guo, the judge of the contest. “The co上海千花坊女神会所

Professor He, director of the College of Liberal Arts & Law, said that the competition was not just a test of studen上海千花坊
