SALLAM ADHAM SAMER HEZAM, an international student from Yemen, one of our 2020 undergraduates in civil engineering, won the first prize in the photography category.

SAMER wrote in the description of the work "Master of the River":

When I first set foot on the land of Guilin, I did not expect that I would come to a beautiful paradise on earth; Everything in Guilin is beautiful and wonderful for me, where I met a lot of Chinese friends full of positive energy, they gave me a lot of help; The seven-day trip is the best time of my life. This photo is also the most beautiful sunset I have ever taken—— the time and place are favorable, the people are brilliant, the green water and green mountains, and everything is perfectly combined in this photo, which is the most perfect interpretation of China's green development concept of "Green mountains are gold mountains".
