Unilifesity is officially formed.
We had been through a period of ideas brewing before its establishment. We were wondering: “How could one live a doubtless life, which enable one to feel connected with life and lead to changes in the quality of life?”
惑 · 感 · 撼, all these three words are interrelated with the word “heart” and how can we achieve all these three? Enabling elderly who did not even have the chance for primary education and people who missed the opportunity to attend university, the opportunity to access lifelong learning and to learn everything related to life so that they could be more open-minded and the society could be more harmonious.
Looking back, when I came to the city to develop my career, I always felt lost when I was alone. “What do I want to do? What is my future? How can I achieve it?”, said Lilian.
I believe many others have had the same experience.
In the past 30 years, I had been actively involved in community services, in my career. Through my experiences, I have accomplished some form of achievements as an entrepreneur. Recalling my ambition when I left my hometown: “I want to pay back the society when I have succeeded in my personal life”, now could be the time, my dream comes true.
Hence, I gathered few friends to discuss ways to create a warm and safe space that empowers people in continuous learning and self-development, so that they could avoid costly mistakes in life and feel less lonely.
After rounds of brainstorming, suddenly a proverb appeared in my mind: “At age 30, I stood firm. At age 40, I was unperturbed.”
This proverb suddenly connected my dreams in the past with the current me. I felt that this is my calling. Since I had been through this journey, I wish to encourage more people to live a fulfilling life. I always think: “How can more people able to be unperturbed at age 40? How can more people lead a doubtless life?”.
If the awakening of ‘doubtless’ thought could be like the seeding dandelions, spreading realizations and moments of lives, to touch and incite others, that could turn others into more seeding dandelions, lightening the next, and the next, and the next …. Little by little, the wisdoms accumulated grow to be the learning path for more and more people, fabricating warmth in the society.
This was how Unilifesity started.
