Albania: True Father’s Autobiography Essay Competition
Prepared by UPF Albania
One wonderful project, which we are organizing is essay competition about True Father’s Autobiography and this time it was held on May 11th, in the beautiful city of Korça in south-east of Albania.
This project was a collaboration between UPF and Educational Department of this city. 5 schools participated in this project, and 100 students wrote their essays.
We delivered 100 books of True Father’s autobiography to these students and each one of them, after reading the book, wrote on essay with the same title as the autobiography “As Peace Loving Global Citizen.”
Since the book is speaking about becoming a Global Citizen, the student, which were very inspired by True Father’s life expressed their feelings and their ideas in beautiful ways. The content of the autobiography had a wonderful impact for the teachers as well. That is why they supported the activity and helped the students to finalize their essays. In fact, because teachers were very inspired they took responsibility for developing this project.
The winners were chosen by a jury composed by teachers and peace ambassadors, who know well True Parents. 5 students received prizes, and they expressed their gratitude.
The project was concluded with an artistic ceremony prepared by students of these 5 schools. At the main event 300 people, including peace ambassadors, teachers, students, public figures participated.
We were also happy for having the special emissaries for Europe Dr. Pak and Dr. Moon with us at the event. They expressed and transmitted Heavenly Parent and True Parents’ love to everyone in the hall.
We want to express our gratitude to all the participants, students, teachers and to the Educational Department for working together in creating such a successful event.
