When he went to Goudiaoyana small village in Gui Zhou, he was moved by the poor children. He thought he should do something for them. So he decided to stay there and to be their teacher. He went there without the support of school and family. So money is the biggest problem to him. But he didn’t give up. Even when someone said he was a foolish man, he just smiled and said that he would remember his mother’s words forever: “When someone else are in need, give them a hand .” After graduation, he went back to that village and worked as a volunteer teacher for two years. When he was interviewed by CCTV, he said everyone’s ability is not enough . If possible, he might have an influence to a lot more people. He said: “I hope we can change the poor children’s lives.” And that is the greatest happiness of all the volunteers.
