  East and West have met

  runner-up: Rui Cheng gang, Foreign Affair College

  Honorable judges, ladies and gentlemen:

  Kipling said:" East is east, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet!" But now, a century later, they have met.

  They have met in business. They have met in education. They have met in the arts.

  Some would argue that these meetings leave us with a choice between East and West ,but I believe the best future lies in the creative combination of both worlds. We can make Western ideas, customs and technology our own, and adapt them to our own use. We can enjoy the best of all worlds, because our tradition is, above all, one of selecting the best and making it our own.

  But, do Western styles and values threaten our identity?

  History makes it easy for us to think so-perhaps too easy.

  Some people seem to think that adopting Western customs, such as a bride wearing white-which has long been a color of mourning in China, instead of the traditional Chinese red for her wedding, is another submission to foreign intervention,--a betrayal of our heritage, they say.

  They fear that as we become "globalized", we will no longer be Chinese.

  I do not agree.

  History teachers that a strong and confident nation is at ease in hearing from the outside world.

  The wedding of Eastern and Western cultures, whether in white gowns or red, brings us variety.

  It is a rich banquet of special foods from all over the world.

  As an amateur gourmet of Chinese cuisine, our superb flavours delight me.

  But my Chinese taste appreciates food from any land.

  I even allow the convenience of McDonald's a place in my life without giving up my good taste.

  My grandfather taught me to hum tunes of Beijing opera from the time I was very young; they are deep in my spirit, part of my soul.

  I love Beijing opera, because it always reminds me of who I am.

  But I am also a fan of modern pop music, the No.1 fan of Spice Girls on campus.

  of course, it goes far beyond food, music and dance. It goes into values and ways of thinking about the world.

  Once upon a time, or so my teacher told me, a Chinese boy and an American girl had a squabble.

  Both wanted to keep a bunny rabbit they had found in the garden.

  Surely you've seen a rabbit sunning himself in the grass.

  Nothing is more lovable, nothing more natural. No wonder they wanted him. The Chinese boy played his er-hu. Happiness and joy, longing and passion, filled the air. The little rabbit swayed gently and began to move his ears in the direction of the music. He liked what he heard.

  The girl then took out her violin and played it to produce beautiful melodies of her own.

  The rabbit began to bounce in her direction.

  So intent were the children on their own music that neither paid the other any attention.

  The competing melodies confused the little rabbit and he did not know which way to turn .Unable to attract the little creature, both children gave up ;they walked away, in different directions, leaving the rabbit. . .alone.

  But, what if they listened ,what if they really heard each other's music, instead of always playing their own tunes?

  When I hear the music of a violin ,rich with the joys of men and women who came together and sang and danced.. . I hear echoes of the music of the grass lands, of the hills, of the rivers...of my own native land.

  Is music mine and yours, or is it ours?

  What I want to hear is the er-hu and the violin played together, in rhythm and in tune. Together, we can produce new and beautiful music, rich with textures and sounds that can only be made in harmony.

  The rabbit sits in the grass in the ever-warming sun. Waiting for us to play, waiting for the symphony to begin.

  Will he have to wait forever? The choice is ours . Thank you.









  历史告诉我们:一个强大自信的民族学起外面的世界易如反掌 。









  当然,异质文化的交流远不止于食物、音乐和舞蹈,它深入到价值观和世界观。 有一次老师给我讲了一个中国男孩和一个美国女孩发生争执的故事。










  当我听到小提琴声响起,男男女女走道一起又唱又跳,乐声中充满了欢乐, 此时我也听见了草原上、山谷间、小河旁传来得我们本民族的音乐的回声。



  大家一起才能创造出新颖动听音乐, 只有在和谐中大家才能创造出富有神韵的乐声。




  I Regain Confidence

  I received a devastating blow to my self-confidence in the first interview of my college years. I applied to be a host in our Student Acting Troupe and felt confident that I would be accepted. But one of the panel members told me: "You seem inadequate and you are a little vertically-challenged." My life has never been the same since. I used bigger heels to complement my height and psychological maneuvers and tricks to hide my lack of confidence. But no matter how hard I tried to look the part, there was still something missing.

As president of English Club, I organized the rehearsal of Snow White for an English party. Unfortunately, we could not find an actor to be the last dwarf. It had to be someone who was humorous by nature and fluent in English. Suddenly, all eyes turned to me, and I knew I would have to be the dwarf. To my great surprise and delight, once on stage, I was totally absorbed in the performance and my humorous nature was put to full use. As the dwarf, I was a big hit.

  Yes, each of us is only one among millions of others, but each of us is an individual and each of us is unique. Cultivating our individuality will transform our lives, making of them a kaleidoscope of new colors and textures.

  A world deprived of diversity would be a bland and boring place. The real tragedy is not being short or shy or ugly, but having your identity lost in a world in which everyone is a clone of a model cool boy or a flawless charming girl.

  Given a choice, I would rather be ugly than live in such a world. I'd rather be a genuine dwarf accompanying a Snow White than be a Snow White among nothing but Snow Whites. I would rather be myself. I would contribute my individual and unique colors to create a more diverse universe. Please, be yourself.








  Me and my Fears

  Honorable judges, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen:

  It is a great honor and pleasure to be here on this beautiful Saturday morning to share with you my sentiments about life and passion for the English language.

  About a year and a half ago, I took part in my very first English Speech Contest. When I stood before the microphone with all eyes starring directly at me, I could hardly speak. I stood there, embarrassed and helpless, struggling in vain for the right thing to say. My fears had paralyzed me.

  While my passion for English has never changed, I lost my courage to speak in public. When my professor again encouraged me to take part in this Competition, I said “no.” I couldn’t endure yet another painful experience. He looked me straight in the eye and said something that pierced my heart. I will never forget his words. “Look,” he said, “We all have our fears, and you have yours. You could twist your ankle in a basketball game, but then be afraid to ever play again. Running away can never dispel your fears, but action will. A winner is not one who never fails,but one who never quits.”

  I spent a whole day with his words twisting and turning in my mind. Then I made the bravest and wisest decision of my life: I would face my fears – and take part in the competition!

  As it turned out, my dear old professor was right. Now, here I am, once again standing before a microphone. My heart is beating fast, and my mouth is dry, but most importantly, I have faced my fears -- and that makes all the difference!

  Thank you.





  我花了一整天时间思考他的话。 然后,我做出了一个勇敢而明智的决定: 我要参加中央电视台第五届“希望之星”英语风采大赛!
