The champion team will represent Penang, Malaysia to attend International Conference in Taiwan in January 2020. A total of 22 teams of participants and representatives have attended the closing ceremony which was held at Universiti Sains Malaysia. City Wanderer was started in 2013 in Taiwan when a group of Taiwanese college students realized that nobody was guiding the youth to find their appropriate paths in life and they have decided to do something. As an organization, City Wanderer strives to solve the problems of young people in finding their purpose in life and helps the youth to realise that they could also make an impact to the world.
City Wanderer Penang 2019 was started on the 19th of October 2019 (Saturday) followed by seven days of challenge period for participants to complete the 20 missions and the closing ceremony was held on the 27th of October 2019 (Sunday). In his speech, Mr. Ching Kar Lok shared with everyone about the meaning behind each mission and the messages that the organizer hoped to convey to the participants.
He hoped that all the participants have recharged in this one week challenge period and can face all the obstacles in life with a brand new self! The participants also shared their feelings and lesson learnt after the challenges. Various obstacles they have faced while completing the missions benefited them a lot and let the participants experienced the warmth of the society.
All the participants have carried out the reflection process with the guidance of coordinators. This reflection process allowed the participants to extend their learning and find the resources for further growth. Hereby, Chinese Arts and Cultural Secretariat of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM SKKT) would like to extend their sincere gratitude and appreciation to each and everyone of you for the great support throughout City Wanderer Penang 2019.
