Liu Xingyue
Nanjing, Jiangsu 
In 2021, I worked as a volunteer in the Nanjing Yuhuatai Martyrs
Memorial Hall (烈士纪念馆). As a tour guide, it was difficult to remember
2, 000 words of introduction for the place, but I did this job well. In 2022,
I hope I can do more meaningful activities like this. 
Li Zhouzi
Xi'an, Shaanxi 
This year 2021, I was excited to become a writer for TEENS. I succeeded
writing something to encourage people when they are upset. That gave
me a lot of confidence. In 2022, I'll write more stories and share my
thoughts with others. 
Li Yijia
Wuxi, Jiangsu 
Looking back on 2021, the biggest event in my life is from the "Double
Reduction" Policy (政策). Instead of spending my weekends attending
after-school classes, I began to plan my own weekends. I hope the policy
continues in 2022, and my life can be even better. 

Ma Miyang
Zhengzhou, Henan 
The year 2021 was a difficult one for people from Zhengzhou. A heavy rainstorm broke everything. I went to the community volunteer service station to work

14.  We all know there is a problem with plastic pollution. Five trillion (万亿) plastic bags are used every year. One million plastic drinking bottles are bought every minute.
  In 2019, McCartney's UK-based company built the world's first plastic road in Scotland. The plastic waste was made into grains (颗粒) and then mixed with bitumen (沥青). The road looks just like any other road. But it has improved strength (强度) and is more stretchy (有弹性的) thanks to the plastic.
  "Our technology can not only help solve the problem of plastic waste but also produce roads that deal better with changes in the weather, reducing cracks (裂缝) and potholes (路面的坑洼)." McCartney told the BBC. McCartney's idea came from a trip to India. "I saw people in India would put plastic waste into potholes and burn it. The plastic would melt down (熔化) and form a seal (封口) in the hole," said McCartney.
  "I knew that there must be some similarities between the plastic and bitumen, which both come from oil. That's how I started to think about mixing them," he said. After lots of testing, McCartney found the best recipe. The most important thing is the materials can be reused to build new roads.
  "We're just a small part of ending the plastic problems, but it's nice to be part of it," McCartney said.
15.  On the Beijing-Zhangjiakou high-speed train, Wu Yifan, a member of the "Snow Dream" team, is welcoming passengers from different countries in different languages during the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. The passengers are traveling between Beijing, Yanqing and Chongli. (1)      
  "For this big event, we have been taking all kinds of classes since two years ago. The classes ran from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (2)       We were busy like students." said Wu.

To deal with "ear popping" (耳鸣 ), the crew made a six-step exercise. Passengers can learn it from the screens. (4)       Press it, and the crew (乘务组) will come to help them.
  The most enjoyable thing is that it's a hi-tech travel. (5)       There were large screens with 5G technology broadcasting (转播) the Olympics live on the way. All in all, the Beijing Winter Olympics gives the world so many surprises and a complete success.

16.  Do you experience a change in feelings as it turns to winter? Many people do. It is reported that for about 5% of people in the northern half of the US, cool temperatures and shorter days may be the sign that Seasonal Affective Disorder (季节性情绪失调) or SAD begins.
  SAD is a kind of feeling that usually arrives in autumn or winter. It usually starts with an increased appetite (食欲) for food like ice-cream and potato chips, the strong wish to sleep longer hours, and difficulty in getting up every morning.
  The exact cause of this disorder remains unknown. But the good news is that people can predict and prevent it, because SAD has to do with seasons. Lots of studies have shown that light therapy (疗法) helps a lot since about the 1980s. Norman E. Rosenthal, the psychiatrist (精神病学家), he and his research team discovered and named the disorder in the 1980s. He also suggested getting outside often to enjoy the sunshine. "Walking outside for even 20 or 30 minutes each day can make a huge difference," he said. Also, it's important to choose food that can cheer one up, such as dark chocolate, fish and fruit, instead of eating too much sugar.
  Too nervous to enter winter? Take it easy and you'll feel relaxed! Remember, SAD is seasonal. If winter comes, can spring be too far behind?

  Many people experience a change in feelings when winter comes. According to a report, about 5% of people in North America think cool temperatures and shorter days mean the (1)       of SAD.
  What's the feeling of SAD? For example, people strongly want to eat more junk food and sleep longer hours or even they don't want to get up every morning. (2)       these changes in their body and mind happen, SAD may arrives.
  Though it's still unknown what (3)       causes this disorder, it's possible to predict and prevent it. Research shows that light therapy is (4)      . And people should walk outside to enjoy the sunshine for 20 or 30 minutes each day. Besides, it's important to choose food that can cheer them up instead of eating too much sugar.
  So, people should (5)       themselves when winter comes. Remember, SAD is seasonal. It won't last for long.
17.  Among China's 764 traditional crafts (手工艺品), more than half of them are in danger of disappearing. Luckily, many crafts are now kept alive by more and more young craftsmen (手艺人).
Dough figurine Lang is a kind of folk art. It was created by Lang Jiaziyu's grandfather Lang Shao'an. He once traveled to the UK and another 11 countries to spread his art. 

  Born in 1995, Lang Jiaziyu became interested in dough figurines (面人) at the age of five and learned it from his family. Over the past 20 years, he has enjoyed turning whatever he sees into little figures. Some of his dough Figurines are from popular cartoon characters and some are about famous people.
Lang is trying to introduce the art form to more people with the help of pop culture. To teach more people about more art forms, Lang also makes short videos of the crafts and shares them online.
Yuhang in Hangzhou has been known for making oil paper umbrellas since 230 years ago. Umbrellas here need over 70 steps and it takes at least a week to make an umbrella. 

  Liu Weixue is a master of making oil paper umbrellas. In 2015, Liu gave up a well paid job to learn the traditional art from his grandfather. After mastering the skills, Liu opened a studio (工作坊) and worked with local umbrella-making masters. He improved his umbrellas to win young people's hearts. Two years later, Liu opened an online shop to sell umbrellas. Now it has more than 80, 000 followers.
Liu hopes the art can be passed on. So he goes to some schools in Yuhang to teach students and shows up at events and activities in different places to show more people the art.
