On Oct. 18, VIPKid celebrated its 5th anniversary by inviting over 1000 staff from our Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, and Chengdu offices to a sports stadium for a day of teamwork and athletic competition. This VIPKid Olympiad included a relay race, a 6km marathon, a tug-of-war, and speeches from our students and founders.
“What’s the thing that makes you proudest in the last five years? For me, it’s our teams.” said CEO and founder Cindy Mi.
“I am looking forward to the day when we can all look back and be proud of the work we’ve done. Why can human beings make a better world? Because we have education and wisdom.”
Students got the chance to talk about how learning English with VIPKid gave them more than just a new language, but also the confidence that comes with it. After that, VIPKid’s own in-house athletes ran, relayed, and pulled their way to glory.
(In case you were wondering, the team from Dalian, in Northeast China, won the tug-of-war.)
