Makzan’s Weekly Dispatch 2019w2: Feeling Grateful

Hi <<First Name>>,

This week, I am deeply honored to receive the award of professional merit medal from Macao SAR government.

Professional Merit Medal

Feeling Grateful

This is an encouragement for my work and training in skills competitions. Let me take this chance to thank WorldSkills, thank Macao SAR and my employer, CPTTM, for offering me the opportunities. Thank my fellow experts from every place in the world for their great works and contributions to run great comepetitions. Also thank my family’s support. Without their support, I can’t be laser focus on the work.

The road ahead is stilll long. I will take this award as an encouragement for me to keep moving forward. It will be competition preparation week in Kazan next week. I have been looking forward to meeting my friends there for months. And also look forward to the competition week in August. Will have many things to learn there.
