Ramona’s Betty Yuexi ’22 Publishes First Book
Ramona Convent congratulates Yuexi (Betty) S. ’22 who recently published her first book revisiting “The Analects in an Interconnected World”. In this book, Yuexi offers insightful explanations for each of the 500 entries in The Analects of Confucius over the course of two years of high school. It’s an irreplaceable collection of work to help the western world understand Chinese traditional culture. Being familiar with traditional Chinese culture and having profound insights into the integration of eastern and western cultures, Yuexi sought wisdom from The Analects from the perspective of a modern teenager solving life puzzles and shaping her personality practically. She also searched for the values The Analects would bring to today’s western culture. Based on these two perspectives, the publication of this book will help strengthen cultural exchanges between China and the western world and reawaken readers’ enthusiasm for the pursuit of the goodness and beauty of human nature.
Yuexi loves journalism and communication and has dreamed of studying this in college. She’s read many classic works of communication and has also published related papers. Cultural exchange is an essential branch of communication, and publishing is an indispensable way to make exchange and mutual understanding happen. Yuexi hopes to continue doing more beneficial things in the communication realm to foster a bridge between Chinese and American culture.
