On Tuesday, May 14, three (3) Confucius Classroom at USIU-Africa students competed at the finals of the 23rd Chinese Bridge –Chinese Proficiency Competition for non-native University students’ Kenyan division.

The competition highlighted student’s proficiency in Chinese language and culture. It covered three (3) areas, which include: Chinese speeches question and answer session and a talent show. This years’ theme was ‘one world, one family’.

Austin Wachira, Joan Chepkirui and Mariamu Rajabu represented USIU-Africa. This years’ edition was our debut and our students performed exemplary well.

Austin Wachira received two (2) awards i.e. an outstanding performance award for his fluent speech and a rising star award for an electric Kungfu performance. Joan and Mariamu both received an outstanding performance award for showcasing an eloquent poem and excellent dance respectively; alongside their well-polished speeches.

Our contestants made us proud and have set the bar high for our forthcoming students of Chinese Language. Their performance lived to this year’s Chinese zodiac sign; the Dragon, which is a year of good fortune.

Austin, Joan and Mariamu: Hongera! Congratulations!
