She pointed out that the process of uniting to fight against the epidemic has made us further understand what is the "community of shared future of mankind" and how to contribute our own strength to the "community of shared future of mankind". Student of ZJUI should give full play to the role of a bridge, be an emissary of friendship between Zhejiang University and UIUC, even between China and the United States, and keep close contact with each other.
