Update 11/18/19 9:34 p.m.: This article has been updated. It originally stated that Taoyi Lu was the international senator for the Office of International Students and Scholars, when she is actually the international senator for ASLMU. The article now features the correct title.
Global Citizens Day is an event that raises awareness of different cultures around the world. It is a part of the 20th annual WorldFest. This will be LMU’s third annual Global Citizens Day event and will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Lawton Plaza. The event will have tabling from different study abroad offices, cultural clubs and international ambassadors who will be representing their own countries. There will also be music from a D.J., traditional dance performances, as well as a Kuwait Lounge. Global Citizens Day will also have food and giveaways for fun prizes.
Taoyi Lu, who goes by Kelly, is the international senator for ASLMU and a sophomore film television and media studies and screenwriting dual major. When asked about why Global Citizens Day is important, Lu answered, “LMU currently has international students and staff from about 90 different countries. For Native American students, some of them also have an international background. The reason why this event is so important [is] because it’s an annual chance to understand student fellows and the world more. Most important thing is to use this as a platform to connect to the world.”
