The SOS Children’s Village in Kaifeng

The SOS Children’s Village in Kaifeng had four students who took college entrance examinations last year, and they are very proud that all four of them were successful and have enrolled in universities!

Among them is Qianwen, one of the Village’s most dedicated students. She studied very hard for many years to do well on her entrance exams, never sure that she would succeed, but the education and support she received in Kaifeng helped her to surpass even her own expectations.

Now, like college freshman around the world, she is stepping onto a bigger stage and setting the next ambitious goal for herself. Through her years of commitment to her education, Qianwen says she has learned that there is no such thing as an end to self-improvement—even when you succeed in reaching one goal, there is always another you can strive for.

Qianwen will be starting the next stage of her journey at Xi’an Physical Education University, where she will major in sports journalism. With her spirit of hard work and dedication, she’ll surely continue to do great things.
