SU Beijing Student Gives Speech at 35th Anniversary of China Daily Newspaper

IMG_0910SU Beijing student Phoebe Sudargo is interning at China.org.cn. Earlier this week, she was invited to give a speech at the 35th anniversary of the newspaper China Daily.

About 30 international commentators and experts shared their stories, thoughts and suggestions about China at a seminar in Beijing organized by the paper.

Themed “My China Story,” the event sought to solicit suggestions for telling China’s story to an overseas audience. You can read more at the China Daily website.

Phoebe is just one of many SU Beijing students who chose to take advantage of their time abroad by taking part in an internship. If you’re interested in spending a semester in Beijing, applications are now open for Spring and Fall 2017. All students enrolling in the program will receive a $1000 grant.
