"I enjoyed the chorus so much!" ANNABERDIYEVA AKPAMYK exclaims excitedly, "Singing is the most important part of my life. After three years, I finally got the chance to go back to China and sing the songs to more people on the Chinese stage. I really enjoyed my time rehearsing and singing with the choir members. Although we came from different countries and went to different universities in China, our same interests bonded us together and we had a good understanding of each other and had a lot of fun together. This experience is very precious to me, and in the future, I hope to work with my choir mates to perform more wonderful works for everyone." She is also very grateful for the platform and careful organization provided by the Service Center for Overseas Education of the Ministry of Education, as well as the support and assistance given by our school.
