This is me…
My name is 宾龙燕, I am 27 years old from Guilin, China where I live and work as a carpenter in my family’s business.
宾龙燕 spoke to us on a cold and windy Sunday in the midst of tools, saws and endless amounts of wood.
What makes you happy?
Working together with my family.
What makes you sad?
Nothing makes me sad.
I am very positive about my life.
What makes you proud?
When people recognise the time and effort I put into my job.
They recognise that I work hard and when they tell me I do a good job and they are happy, I feel proud.
I feel I have achieved something.
I feel fulfilled.
What makes you wonder?
So many things…
In many countries now there are so many terrible things happening at the moment, such as war and terrorism.
These things are terrible and cruel.
What does it mean to be human?
To be human…the important thing is to be honest.
How do you feel when someone acknowledges the hard work you put into a task?
When was the last time you told someone you appreciated their hard work and meant it?
How would you answer if you were asked?
