In 2021, I noticed a moments of a former colleague that HandsOn Shanghai is hiring a Beach Cleanup team leader.

I happened to be in the transition period of my career, I think that time I has the most courageous to try new things, and I had always had the idea of volunteering but had never practiced it, so I clicked the link and signed up. Just this simple action let me gain a lot of insights in 2021.

These insights came from the interesting soul of every event I participated in, from the brainstorming of each preparation, also from the story behind. So the bridge of thoughts and action may be that WeChat moments. If you have not crossed, it may be that wechat friends are not enough.

I remember the first time I joined in is February 27, 2021, a windy and raining day, went to beach cleanup with Sophia, it took two and a half hours, that day because of the weather, even take a photo is difficult, I wondered if this is the journey to the west so that need to experience the hardships.

But listened to Sophia’s knowledge output were completely instead uncomfortable, I was amazed and admired.
