“Kung Hei Fat Choi!” Celebrating Chinese New Year – in solidarity with the Black Students’ Campaign

Well, it’s not China but it’s the closest I’ll get to it while I’m still in London! I thought I’d share with you my afternoon celebrating Chinese New Year in China Town, London with NUS Black Student Campaign member Barbara Ntumy, who told me how East Asian students can also be an active part of the NUS Black Students’ Campaign!

Don’t forget to follow my student blog… As much as I love travelling I can’t do it all the time – I’m first and foremost the EFed student!

A varied mix of Chinese, Londoners and tourists all jointing together in solidarity to celebrate a family-friendly event fused with Eastern culture.
