THE BAJA POST
Proud of their oriental roots and descent, a group of university students have stood out in the student community of CETYS University for their work in favor of the dissemination of the multiculturalism that exists in the capital of Baja California. These are the students that make up the CETYS-China Student Society (SACC), for whom in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the barrier of physical space has not been an impediment to continue supporting those who need it most, at the same time time that spread much of the customs, traditions and oriental culture.
Recently in the framework of the celebrations for the New Year, the beginning of the Chinese Mid-Autumn, as well as the Moon Festival, the members of the SACC, with the help of technology, brought the essence of the festivities to the Bethesda Home, located in Mexicali.
Despite the physical distance, the young people were present with the infants and adolescents who live in Bethesda, sending them food and the endemic moon cake, made by the students themselves, as well as red blessing envelopes. These included a ballot with the owner’s name in Arabic and Mandarin Chinese, as well as a yuan, symbolizing the ongoing struggle to fulfill her dreams and goals. During these months of confinement, the priority has been to maintain health and as much as possible connected with our environment, explained Lingling Su, President of the SACC and student of the Bachelor of International Business at CETYS University, Campus Mexicali.
