News of the Station(the reporter:Tanchen Chen Haie)： He insists working hard at English and study; he never
complains or gives up; he always remembers his dream and pursues it his name is Liu Shiyu, the winner of the
National Scholarship from the grade of 2012.
To Meet Challenge---to Know Myself Better
During the three years when studying in the South China University For Nationalities(SCUN), Liu Shiyu has got
the first in the specialist ranking every year, got the National Scholarship, got the National second prize in the
CNP Cup National College Students English Speech Contest and in The Sound of APEC in the Future China
Selection Activities, got the National College Students’ English Contest Grand Prize in Hubei province and got
the IDEA of Group in Central China English Debating Contest Champion in both China and English. English is to him what oxygen to human. He is obsessed with English so much. As to the secret of his success in English,
he just modestly explains it in this,“To remember more words, to listen more, to speech more, to read more and
to write more.”
The Duty Makes Him Become More Persistent and Calm
Liu Shiyu ever held the post of monitor, the President of the school English Association, and the captain of
the School English Speech and Debate Team. When asked that which one is more important between study
and the work of association, his answer is,“I’m so clear that study is more important to me. Many students think that we are so free in university that we can refuse studying. However, they will be also afraid of failing in exams or checking. Nowthat we have to study no matter we like it or not, why not welcome it? Just like what Churchill said, do not try to do what you like, but like what you are doing. And I want to add that, the study I mean includs not only studying our major but also learning more new knowledge broadly to improve ourselves. Also, learning more help me do better in my work of association,For example, studying economics makes me knowing more about raising money and management; reading Difficult Conversation and Getting to Yes makes me learn the way of communication; being more able in English makes me contribute more to association. So it’s clear that studying makes me do better in the role of the President, even I meet my best
friend in the English association.” From his words, we can feel that he knows what he wants and he can
handle the important the less one, and he is always so careful.
The Advice--You Can Do It If You Are Brave
Liu Shiyu gave his advice to the freshman in four words:to study hard and find what you like, then stick to it; to keep reading and communicate with those great writers; to be honest; and to endure hardship.
As to the relationship between study and love, he said that,“Every once in a while you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare”。He mean that we can try falling in love someone when we feel he or she is so special, but at the same time we have to balance our study and love.
