"My Jiangxi Dream" is a personal experience of Emmanuel from the perspective of international students and his own experience of studying in China, in Jiangxi province. It tells how he learned Chinese under the guidance of his teachers after coming to China, and how he realized his great effort whilst on stage at the Jiangxi Provincial Chinese Competition.
