He put forward three hopes: the first is to have lofty ideals and to be patriotic, to combine personal ambition with the development of the country. Secondly, students should strive to increase their talents through hard work and diligent study. Thirdly, students should carry forward the spirit of acting as a doer and striver. Answering the call of the times, we should be responsible and steadfast in our work and life, so that the future would be even more colorful.
