Black Tie International:
Harmony Liu- Anti Ebola Committee , United Nations

Harmony Liu

 

Harmony Liu:
Future Leader with a big heart


 When the first charity event of the
"Stop Ebola, Build Up Future Concert"
 was  hosted by
the Anti-Ebola Committee of United Nations, 

people were surprised to see a 9-year-old American-Chinese girl
 named
 Harmony Liu
 (nicknamed as Harmony Princess)
 from New York 188 Elementary School of Bayside.

She walked in together with many famous super stars that were invited as special guests
 to go to the red carpet.  Furthermore, she was busy signing the posters that are used as propaganda for fighting Ebola after the adults who make donations, and at the same time, she was busy taking pictures with the starts who loved what she does; they have became
 Fans! Why was that?

Well, her drawing was selected from a drawing contest hosted by the
 “Global Future Leader Organization ”
 and her drawing was chosen to be the theme leading picture. 
Ambassadors and many officials of the United Nations
 along with many stars appreciated the meaning of her creative as following content :


“People had just woken up from the nightmare of SARS,
but the bloody and hungry Ebola invaded Africa  again, opened his mouth to Earth's Human being. He is indeed, a stranger  to mankind, so he was on the way to spread his poison all over the planet.

 The World Healthy Organization of the United Nations (WHO) 
 lead people to fight back, raising its UN flag highly.  Sierra Leone is one of the most seriously affected by Ebola and its president, top scientist and top doctor together invented new medicines to use the needle with injection tube to fight to Ebola  !   

People are using their wisdom to defeat such an enemy again, protecting their health
 and the balance of the world.”


We Notice that this incredible and vivid imagery was created by a 9-year-old
American born Chinese girl, Harmony Liu; she used symbolism to represent the
 “War” against Ebola, but still with some childish marks.

The micro viruses of Ebola are being turned into big worms, being attacked by everyone under the flag of the United Nations. Experts, doctors, and presidents are working together using a syringe as a cannon, pills as bombs.

Their efforts encourage the African countries, and their flags will keep flying in the sky.
 The rising sun foreshadows that victory will be ours.


 Many officials and stars appreciated Little Harmony’s drawing.

More meaningfully and  importantly, she gave up her 900 dollars lucky money
 which she had saved over 9 years received from relatives
 during Chinese New Year holidays for printing posters to promote anti-Ebola,
 and hope raise fund from everyone who donated more than 10 dollars would receive a signature from her on her posters.

The Stop Ebola committee of UN will plan to bring this painting to ask Secretary General  Ban Ki-moon to give this painting a signature as to encourage her doings.


I am indeed excited as a reporter, to see the benefits of such events for training children’s morality, creativity, and compassion, as it is essential to children’s growth.

 Harmony’s drawing ability was not being taught, it was trained; drawing is an aid to children’s ability to observe, to image, and to remember.

Drawing is an experience of heart; a child has to go through every little bit with attention, and make them into logical relations.

 Harmony is indeed a smart girl; having decent education from her family since little.

She won the Hollywood Acting Contest for children model show which the award
is IPOd  in her age of 6, and she was the only Asian girl to win it. 

She also participates in different charity activities, getting prizes in a variety of fields, having good grades in every subject. She thinks about others, cares about her younger sisters and brothers, unites her friends, pays attentions to her surroundings,
 and is also eager to ask and think.


 Harmony Liu is not a politician or social worker.
 She is just a little girl with a kind smile.
She was born the same year the “World Harmony Bell” was born, which was alsothe
 UNited Nations  60's birthday,  so her English name was chosen as “Harmony,”
meaning Harmony for Peace (Chinese name also has a nickname  Princess “Gege”).

 Her fate was bonded to world harmony since her birth;
 her destiny is to promote Harmony and Peace!


 I believe this clever little girl is here with such a mission; she will make her own contribution to the world.

She is a role model for all kids !  I am proud for being a Chinese!

              《抗击埃博拉,华童在行动;艺术助慈善,从我心做起!》


 

   在联合国主办的首次抗击埃博拉大会的明星慈善行动红地毯新闻发布会中,人们看到一道风景线:来自纽约188小学的9岁华童和谐格格,被特邀与大明星们共同走进红地毯!在她身边有个捐献箱,她一会忙着在爱心大人捐献资金后,給他们在抗击埃博拉宣传日历上签字,一会儿又忙着与喜欢她的明星们合影,为何明星反倒成为她的粉丝呢? 原来她作为华童参加联合国抗击埃博拉大会承办机构之一“全球未来领袖组织”举办的绘画作品征集中,被联合国组委会选中作为该大会的主题画! 参会的联合国官员与美国明星们惊奇的欣赏这副画的画意:“人们刚从SASC的恐惧中渐渐舒缓过来,惊魂未定又见艾伯拉狰狞的血盆大口向我们地球人类袭来,艾伯拉陌生的面孔难以辨认,大有无人可挡,无法可施之势。联合国世界卫生组织高举反击艾伯拉病毒的大旗,引领人们围剿反击艾伯拉,对人类无情入侵! 当人类智慧之光降服妄想吞屠人类的艾伯拉病毒,又一次战胜天敌,保护了人类的健康、生态平衡,保护了人类的安全与和平。”

 
这是来自纽约9岁的美籍华童和谐格格, 她竟能以高度概括,象征手法,表现赞扬了这场保卫人类的搏斗,脸上还透着稚嫩的气息,作品中每一个形象都显示出饱满肯定象征意义。肉眼看不到的艾伯拉病毒被放大成巨虫,放在画面中群击的目标位置,联合国大旗引领在前,联合国大厦里紧张的团队再夜以继日的紧张工作着,全世界最好的老医生,老科学家,与总统共同在第一线团结奋战着,医疗器械针筒就是炮筒武器,药品当做炮弹,不制服埃博拉不罢休,他们奋战精神鼓舞着埃博拉泛滥的几个非洲国家,他们的国旗顽强的飘荡在空中,冉冉升起的太阳告诉人们,希望属于伟大善良聪明的人类。。。。

    和谐格格这幅作品,受到联合国大使及高级官员与明星们的赞赏,更难能可贵的是,她把自己9年来积累的春节红包的900美元,全部拿出来印刷抗击埃博拉宣传日历招贴画,每个捐钱10元的人都会得到她的处女作签字,组委会将安排送往潘基文秘书长爷爷给予亲自签名鼓励。

 
    作为记者的我也心情激动不已,不由得让人想到艺术教育与慈善活动,对培养孩子道德情操、爱心修养、想像力与创造力是多么重要,孩子几年成长的过程,孩子绘画成长,不是教出来的,而是培养出来的,绘画是一种加强记忆力,促进孩子观察力,培养孩子想象力的过程。它是由微妙精细的观察力,形象思维能力,高效的记忆力,创造的想象力,再加上手的协调运动和丰富的表达能力组成的。绘画是心理历程的培养和锻炼的过程,没有平时的多方面训练,孩子怎能这么准确的把握住主题,明确的组织画面的逻辑关系。 和谐格格这孩子天资聪慧,从小接受良好的家庭教育和薰陶从六岁开始就获得好莱坞国际表演大赛儿童组模特冠军,是唯一获得该奖的亚裔孩子,她经常参加社会慈善活动,在不同领域拿奖,门门功课都名列前茅,小小年纪善解人意,爱护弟弟妹妹、团结同学朋友、关注周围事物、善提问善思考。  

 
   和谐格格不是社会工作者,不是是政治家,她就是一个天真烂漫纯洁可爱的小姑娘。她与世界和谐钟共同诞生在联合国60大寿的2015年,因此起名为和谐Harmony, 小名格格,从她诞生到这个世界上,她的命运和这个世界紧密相连,她的使命就是和谐促和平!

 
    我相信这位小才女生,是带着造福人类的使命来的,她将会为这个世界做出自己的贡献的,这又是一个多么自然美好的爱心慈善楷模啊!我骄傲,为我们华人!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                3月8日 2015年于纽约
