Feedback from parents:
“Thank you for giving the children this opportunity. I am really satisfied with the internship program, and it surpassed my expectations. Thank you very much for your hard work!”

“Writing articles and holding media interviews are very different. How do you keep guests on topic, how do you make the guests cooperate, avoid the cold moments, ask difficult but meaningful questions, bring back the conversation to the main subject when it goes off-topic; my daughter got all of these skills from the training. Those concepts are difficult to teach if you do not have more than ten years of media experience and experience relating to all kinds of scenarios. Thank you very much for your professional planning, teaching and provide follow-up internship opportunities. Thank you again!“

All the trainees will receive the “Youth Community Ambassador” certificate jointly issued by the Silicon Valley Innovation Channel DingDing TV and the Bay Area Youth Initiative.
