At the conference, she served as a representative of the Youth4Climate Chinese Youth Delegation. She exchanged ideas with environmentalists and gave a speech stressing the importance of combating climate change.

Everyone should take action to support climate change education.” Zheng Shuang is often praised by netizens for her active involvement in social issues.

Ma Long and Liu Shiwen, China’s table tennis world champions, received the Male and Female Star Awards on Dec 11. The 2019 Star Awards ceremony, hosted by The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), was held in Zhengzhou, Henan.

Ma Long cemented his reputation as one of the greatest male players in table tennis history earlier in the year, the ITTF stated. After 2015 and 2016, this was the third time Ma received the honor. “Table tennis means everything to me,” Ma said at the ceremony.

This was Liu Shiwen’s second Female Star Award after she won her first in Lisbon in 2015.

Twenty-five years after its release, All I Want for Christmas is You, a Christmas single by US singer Mariah Carey, topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It is also the 19th Billboard champion single from the US singer in her career of 30 years. It is the most-listened-to song during Christmas, with a record of more than 10 million listens within 24 hours on Spotify.

Mariah Carey is known as Christmas Queen as she keeps writing Christmas songs and holding Christmas special concerts.

Growing up in a working-class family, she had to work several jobs to pay for recording songs when she was young. Though she went through a tough time, her passion for Christmas never changed. Her love for Christmas continues throughout her career regardless of what people think of her. “I'm a very festive person and I love the holidays. I’ve sung Christmas songs since I was a little girl,” the singer told the media. As Carey sticks to what she loves, she is rewarded with fame and wealth by the warm and happy Christmas song she created.

马上学:Festive意为“喜庆的,欢乐的”,近义词有festal和merry。
