Youngster spreads friendship message
Monday, 15th December, 2014
Gloria Zou wants everyone to love each other and for the world to become one big happy family.
And the seven-year-old Sydney school girl isn’t waiting for someone else to fulfil her noble, if ambitious, dream.
The Chinese national is already a proven relationship builder and recently flew to Broken Hill with her mother Sally to spread the message of friendship among locals.
Businesswomen Sally Zou has been spending a bit of time in Broken Hill. Her company Aus Metal Mining Group is looking to invest in mining projects in the region and is opening an office in the Trades Hall.
Gloria believes children are the key to further strengthening relations between Australia and China.
During their trip to the city last week, she and Gloria presented gifts to the Alma-Bugdlie Preschool along with some surprised local children in Creedon Street.
It was little Gloria’s first visit to the city and she said she “couldn’t wait” to meet some of the mining town’s children, especially the Aboriginal kids.
Gloria has become China’s unofficial ambassador to Australia. In August, she was part of a cultural exchange function organised for the Chinese Consulate-General which was also attended by two local children.
Her efforts to foster greater friendship between the two countries have even been recognised by Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
