The ‘Double Olympic City’ has given me two opportunities to serve in the Olympics.”In the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Yi Ran, who was just a sophomore in college, became a college student volunteer in the Olympic Headquarters of Capital Normal University after layers of selection, which was her first “close contact” with the Olympic Games.Yi Ran was a student party member and student cadre when he was a student. No matter he was concerned about volunteer work or national affairs, he was more eager to participate in it and contribute to the strength of a young student.After the closing of the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games, she was awarded “Advanced Worker of Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games” and “Advanced Individual of Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games work of Capital Normal University”.Meet again with 14 years later, when the Beijing Olympics, the likelihood is the teacher of China university of geosciences (Beijing), as the Olympic/paralympic) family hotel run volunteer team manager, responsible for recruiting, screening, training, team of volunteers and the management of the games-time volunteers service guarantee of motivation, work, work content throughout the winter Olympics and the winter paralympics always.”I am now a ‘volunteer’ for the volunteers.

Much of the training, learning and simulation work is done online, which was difficult to do before, but now it is very easy.”I’m proud to have served twice at the Olympics, proud of the lovely ‘ice generation’ and, more importantly, proud of our great country.After returning to class, I will share my experience of participating in the Winter Olympics with students to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Winter Olympics, and let them feel the happiness and responsibility of this golden age.”Yi ran said.Copyright belongs to China Economic Weekly magazine.
