A group of young college student volunteers shine on the venue of the conference-Boao, a small town in Qionghai County of south China's Hainan Province.

Student Wang comes from Inner Mongolia and studies at the Law School of Hainan University. She is one of the three students from Hainan University who had won the selective interviews against hundreds of competitors by the university and the event organizer in early March.

While busy doing her job at the reception service, she gets excited with the topic of Tibet knowing that these people she is talking to are reporters from China Tibet Online and have actually been to Tibet.

"I'm longing to visit Tibet," says she, "If I should use one word to describe it, it is 'purity'."

She went to Shangri-la in Yunnan Province last summer and there she met some Tibetan people. "They were kindhearted and honest. A Tibetan vendor sold me a big chunk of milky doufu for only 5 yuan." She laughs and adds that she gets impressed very much by Tibetan people with their unsophisticated characteristics.

Student Wang comes from Inner Mongolia where Buddhism is a popular religion especially among the seniors. Having old people believing in Tibetan Buddhism at home, she has a cordial feeling towards Tibetan people, "In my memories, we, the Tibetan people and us, are from one nation, one big family."

She also talks about her schoolmates and friends who have been to Tibet and experienced "exceptional experience".

She says with her eyes brimming with radiating vigour, "I set my graduation trip to Tibet. I'll definitely go there in the future."

The Boao Forum for Asia, or BFA, will be held from April the 6th to the 8th. The theme of this year's meeting is, "Asia Seeking Development for All: Restructuring, Responsibility and Cooperation."
