Yu Jianyong affectionately addressed all the graduates, and awarded the graduation certificate and degree to the graduates on site. Yu expressed his warm congratulations to the graduates from all over the world, and expected that they would return to their hometown or leave for every corner of the world with what they had learned in DHU, in China, and their experience of life, the world and the country in the vivid graduation lesson of the epidemic, to create and write a new chapter of their life. He put forward three expectations for the graduates: first, strive to become an open-minded fighter of the new era with the courage to take responsibilities. Only when you have faith in your heart can you go far ahead. With a broad international vision, set up a more magnificent social ideal, apply what you have learned, and fight for the well-being of all mankind. Second, be an ambassador of cultural exchange for mutual progress. No matter where you are in the future, pass on the friendship of the Chinese people and be kind to others. Join hands to contribute to promoting communication among people and the construction of a community of common destiny for all mankind. Third, be a spokesperson of DHU around the world, bearing the imprint of the culture, spirit and character of Donghua, and create more value for the society and the world.

Anselm Vermeulen, a foreign teacher from the Netherlands and Shanghai Magnolia Awards winner, addressed affectionately to the graduates and encouraged them to pursue their dreams boldly. No matter what career path they chose, he hoped that the learning experience in DHU could guide them to become responsible, hardworking and creative persons. No matter where they were, they should never forget that DHU would always be proud of them.

(Speeches by Representatives of the Graduates)

Kang Botian (German), a postgraduate of International Business, Karl (Cameroonian), an undergraduate of International Economics and Trade, and Quan Meiting (Korean), an undergraduate of Chinese language, made speeches in succession to thank their Alma Mater and teachers for the painstaking cultivation, and recalled the wonderful moments of university life. They said that the various activities in the university had enhanced their abilities and talents, and the care for international students during the epidemic period made them feel the warmth of home. After several years studying in DHU, they had harvested comprehensive improvement. In their future work, they would always remember that they had studied in China and been guided and helped by Chinese teachers and classmates. They would make use of their professional knowledge gained in their Alma Mater and the deep friendship they had established with Chinese and foreign teachers and students, to develop their own career with ceaseless efforts, and return the opportunity of further study in China and the cultivation of teachers from their Alma Mater with excellent results.
