LingoAce hosts a screening of Jeremy Lin's latest documentary at Harvard University
Excited to support our brand ambassador, NBA Champion Jeremy Lin's latest HBO documentary (38 points, at Madison Garden)!
Last week, the LingoAce team hosted a screening and symposium of this documentary at Harvard University. It is very gratifying to see that "Linsanity" continues to unite and inspire Asians and the wider community.
Yao Hui, the founder and CEO of LingoAce, made an opening speech and introduced Jeremy Lin, who interacted with the audience through online access, and shared his pleasant experience playing for the Harvard Crimson team.
"Linsanity" not only represents the phenomenon of Jeremy Lin's rise as a superstar on the NBA court, but also brings continuous and far-reaching inspiration to Asians to break stereotypes:Whether there is a glass ceiling for Asian achievements, the meaning of belonging and identity, these continue to affect the entire Asian community.AsHui Yao, founder and CEO of LingoAceSaid:"The story of Jeremy Lin transcends the boundaries of culture, race and country. It brings everyone together no matter what your background, race or identity. The courage, fighting spirit and empathy he displayed are just as important as ever. It’s what we as an education company hope to inspire and pass on to the next generation of learners.”

It requires continuous listening, understanding and education.As summarized by Prof. Taeku Lee, "Change is difficult, but this is a process that accumulates and accumulates over time. The efforts of each of us are meaningful."
