The Impact of China on the World’s Youth

This video shows how China impacts the world’s future through communication, economy, and culture. Through an animated classroom setting, students discover all the ways China influences them and their future. This video was created to inspire others to become interested in and learn more about the fascinating country of China. In order to learn more about the country where my ancestors arose, I researched extensively on the history and present-day affect of China on the world, and incorporated my newly found knowledge into this video.

It was difficult for me to focus on a specific part of China, because I don’t know what exactly will be important in my future (And there is so much to talk about). I decided that no matter what I end up doing in the future, the reach of China is so vast that it will be important in my life no matter where I head in the future. China is growing and will only continue to grow. The road to success leads straight through China. Please enjoy my video!
