Scholarship and Creative Works Conference
I participated in a conference hosted by Adelphi university. It is a private university located about an hour away from where I live, and the beautiful and clean campus is impressive.
After checking in before entering the conference room, I sat in the lounge on the first floor waiting for my presentation time.
I went into the venue with coffee, and the previous teams were giving presentations. There are several stand-up monitors, and each monitor has a number tag on it. My number is 5.
I prepared a total of 4 presentation files. I had to turn the pages with the touch screen below and explain. When I first submitted my abstract, I thought I just had to submit it and simply attend because it was in the form of an electronic poster. However, with the stand-type monitor set up like this, the submitters had to make a presentation as well. It was a different and meaningful experience for me.
This conference was a very precious time for me. It was good to see the clear shining eyes when explaining the Myanmar children and their situation. With this kind of heart, I hope that the global village will become one and help each other and share our hearts.
Below is the art gallery located on the first floor of the building. It's a small gallery, but it's clean and well-lit, so I was able to see the work with a comfortable mind.
And while taking a walk around the campus, I stopped by the nearby Performing Arts Center for a while.
Whenever I see this kind of scene, I draw more of the passion and dedication of the past people who filled this building than the building itself. In this sense, attending and presenting at this conference was very meaningful to me.
