Thank you, Young Post, for giving me this opportunity. I love writing, and I've been interested in Crossroads ever since I went on a visit to their Global Village with my liberal studies teacher, so it was interesting to talk to their representative.

Charity can be tasty - it certainly was on Cone Day - and also fun. Thank you for giving me the wonderful opportunity to report on the charity event. Doing the interviews was good experience for me. I also made some new friends and had lots of fun. I hope to do another assignment soon.

When I read about this event in the Young Post one morning, I didn't hesitate to sign up for it. This decision resulted in a wonderful afternoon. We interviewed representatives from Ben & Jerry's and customers who were donating to charity. I've never done anything like it before and I really enjoyed the day. Although it was tiring standing for several hours and the photo session did not go so smoothly, I still think it was a very memorable experience.

This assignment was really an amazing experience for me. I love writing and have always wanted to be a journalist when I grow up. I'm so glad I was picked to be one of the reporters on Cone Day. I really enjoyed the day and hope you will enjoy my writing as well.

Charity Cone Day was a fun event for ice cream lovers. I enjoyed being part of the Young Post's special assignment team, interviewing the people in-charge of both Ben and Jerry's and Crossroads Hong Kong. I learned a lot - especially about how Ben and Jerry's strives to be a company with a responsibility for society. I absolutely agree with the company's ethos of creating a sustainable future, and not caring only about economic gains. I especially love the ice cream.

Participating in this assignment was great fun for me and I made new friends. The spokespeople were very friendly and they certainly knew what they were talking about. I had lots of fun and would love to participate in another special assignment in the future.
