Due to the language and cultural differences, Gyubi has had to overcome a number of challenges, but is now demonstrating fluent speaking skills which allowed her to win this Chinese writing award, Gyubi has proved effort and faith are the keys to success, that’s why she titled her article as ‘the Power of Faith’ (《信念的力量》).
