《家外之家》征文55 ▏Vlad “the goat fighter”: Epic Journey to the East
大家好。All the time when people ask what is my name, I have difficulties with providing an answer because it actually doesn’t exist. Don’t get me wrong, I have a name, but it is not an English one. That is why, to make things easier in China, I decided to adopt the Chinese name Wukong悟空. Yes, exactly, the same name as the protagonist of the famous novel “Journey to the West”, the Monkey King, but with a different surname, 但是他姓孙,而我姓陈。And Sun Wukong travelled to the West, but I did so to the East.大家好。每次别人问我叫什么名字,我很难回答,因为这压根不存在。不要误会我的意思,其实我有名字,但不是英文名。所以为了更方便在中国生活,我给自己取了个中文名“悟空”。没错,就是《西游记》的主人公孙悟空,他姓孙,而我姓陈。孙悟空“西游”,而我“东游”。
《家外之家》征文54 ▏Roshan: Life isn’t what you expect…
Life itself drives us where we deserve to be. All you need is to have a plan, commit to your goals, prepare, be consistent and have faith. My story is one example… I went to Germany to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor but it didn’t work out because of my family financial conditions back then. I had to serve myself and I couldn’t give my 100% towards my goal so I planned to continue my studies elsewhere.生命本身会指引我们到达应该到达的地方。你需要有所计划,朝着你的目标前进,做好万全准备,坚持不懈,充满信心。我的经历就是一个很好的例子...我漂洋过海来到德国,希望实现我的医生梦,但由于当时我的家庭经济条件,这个梦想落空了。我必须要为自己的决定负责,我当时没有为我的目标付出100%的努力。我决定到另一个地方继续学习。
《家外之家》征文53 ▏Tamar: My dad encouraged me to learn Chinese
I first came to China in 2015, but the journey to China started a long time ago. More than 15 years ago, when I was a little girl, I had a conversation with my dad about my future goals. He suggested that I should study the Chinese language, he said the 21st century is the “Century of China”, and the Chinese language is the “Language of the Future”. I didn’t understand him at that time, because China seemed to be very far away, and I hardly knew anything about this country. In those times, we didn’t have internet, and the only link to the world – the TV – never talked about China.我第一次来中国是在 2015 年,但我的中国故事很早就开始了。15 年前,当时还是小女孩的我和父亲一起讨论我的未来。他建议我学习中文,他说21世纪是“中国的世纪”,而中文是“未来的语言”。当时我还不理解这句话的含义,因为中国似乎很遥远,我对这个国家几乎一无所知。那个年代没有互联网,唯一能了解世界的渠道——电视也从未介绍过中国。
