&x201C;There are so many artistes in the entertainment industry who are not well-educated and are not university graduates anyway. So, why can&x2019;t everyone just put this behind them already? Even if you don&x2019;t possess high academic qualifications, what is the issue? Isn&x2019;t it enough for you to be good at acting? Yuning, no matter what anyone says, you can just prove them wrong through your actions.&x201D;
&x201C;Vera, after filming , I would like to take six months off from acting to attend lessons at the film academy. I may not be a university graduate but this does not mean that I should not be working hard. I have to prove myself to those who are constantly trying to bring me down. I also have to work hard and have this determination so that in the future, the Lu family can never say that I gave up on myself.&x201D;
When Vera saw the look of determination in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s eyes, Vera nodded her head and expressed her support for her. &x201C;I will help you find out the entry requirements for the acting classes at the film academy.&x201D;
&x201C;I would also like you to help me to reply the music department of B University. Please let them know that I will definitely be attending and participating in the fiftieth anniversary celebration.&x201D;
&x201C;That&x2019;s the spirit,&x201D; Vera replied as she patted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s shoulder. &x201C;You are so popular nowadays, so what else do you have to be afraid of? Furthermore, it is not as if you do not have any musical talent at all. By the way, have you finished writing the song that you were composing for Second Young Master Lu?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning blinked her eyes before she replied, &x201C;Yes, I have already finished composing it but I still don&x2019;t think that it is good enough.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay, listen to the song and see if there is anything that I should improve on.&x201D;
This time, Jiang Yuning was very generous as she played the entire song that she had composed on the piano. As she had not written the lyrics yet, this was just a pure piano version of the song.
After listening to Jiang Yuning playing the piano, Vera could not help but sigh. &x201C;It is such a waste. I believe that if you had not dropped out of college in the past, you would definitely be a great singer now. I have already recorded what you played on the piano earlier on your cell phone. You can listen to it yourself and see how beautiful your song is.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning took her cell phone and saved the recording before she nodded her head. &x201C;I got it.&x201D;
Vera smiled at Jiang Yuning before she picked up her bag from the sofa. &x201C;I will find out the necessary information about the film academy for you now. After that, I will meet up with Director Shen to discuss your schedule and any subsequent follow-up arrangements with him. Anyway, I seem to recall that most of the film academy&x2019;s acting classes are usually conducted in the fall. Therefore, there is still a long way to go after you finish filming . I will continue arranging and looking for resources for you in the meantime.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will follow all of your arrangements,&x201D; Jiang Yuning answered Vera as she imported the recording into her song list.
There were a few parts in the song that she was not satisfied with but she did not know how to make it better.
That was the reason why she had decided to put the recording in her song list. She might have some new inspiration if she kept listening to the song.
Vera responded to B University&x2019;s invitation on behalf of Jiang Yuning later that evening.
However, a few days later, news about Jiang Yuning&x2019;s participation leaked out to the public.
Therefore, the public started talking about the fact that Jiang Yuning had dropped out of college five years ago again.
Was B University mocking the graduates of the college?
After all, strictly speaking, Jiang Yuning could not be considered an alumnus of B University at all.
[Is the music department of B University insane? How can they invite a person who has already dropped out of college during their freshman year to participate in the college&x2019;s fiftieth anniversary celebration? Are they trying to encourage their younger students to drop out of college since it is possible for them to attain glory anyway?]
[I agree. Jiang Yuning has already stopped playing music for such a long time. Why are they inviting her to participate in the event? Do they want us to watch her 4.0 rated acting skills? This is absolutely ridiculous.]
[We all know that it wasn&x2019;t easy for Jiang Yuning to finally regain some popularity after participating in the variety program . However, I don&x2019;t agree with the actions taken by the music department of the university. I don&x2019;t want Jiang Yuning to be representing the college!]
[Fortunately, the college did not put up posters of Jiang Yuning up on the walls. Otherwise, I would really spit out all of my food right now.]
B University&x2019;s forum was filled with people and overflowing with comments because everyone was very dissatisfied and unhappy about the situation. How could someone like Jiang Yuning, who did not even complete her freshman year, actually be invited to participate in the university&x2019;s alumni event?
In fact, the music department of B University felt very helpless at this time. After all, they had acted on impulse and sent the invitation to Jiang Yuning only because of her popularity. They had never expected her to actually agree to participate in the event.
What was even more surprising was that no one knew how this matter got leaked out to the public.
The students and alumni of B University were all very unwilling and resistant towards Jiang Yuning&x2019;s participation, to the point that this matter was almost brought up to the chancellor&x2019;s office.
However, what else could they do when the invitation letter had already been delivered?
Therefore, B University could only move forward. They decided that they would assign Jiang Yuning the role of a guest during the event.
The most hateful person was the person who had leaked out the information.
When Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fans heard about this news and when they saw what the netizens had posted and commented about Jiang Yuning, they were all heartbroken and they cried until their eyes were red and swollen.
[Do you think that Sister Yuning dropped out of college because she wanted to? Do you think that she did it willingly? Why are you trying to mock and humiliate her? Are you that great just because you are a university graduate? Did they teach you to make fun of others in college?]
[What makes you think that you are more superior than others? Are you so great just because you learned music? Are you very famous now?]
[Do you know what generation it is right now? Do you think that people still measure others by their academic qualifications? In my opinion, it does not matter even if you have high academic qualifications when your character and personality is so terrible!]
[I will always support Jiang Yuning. I feel so frustrated right now because of this group of people!]
[I&x2026;am a Harvard graduate but I am still supportive of Jiang Yuning and I am one of her loyal fans. Her lack of academic qualifications do not stop me from liking her because I know she has an amazing personality.]
[I&x2026;am a graduate from MIT and I am a guy but I still like Jiang Yuning. She will always be a fairy to me. So what if you are a graduate of B University? Why don&x2019;t you come out and meet up with me so that I can find out how great you really are?]
[I&x2026;am from Cambridge!]
[Wow. Are all the fans so outstanding nowadays?]
As they were afraid that the netizens would question their academic qualifications, each and every one who had said they were graduates from prestigious universities subsequently posted their certificate online to prove that they were not lying.
So, what was so great about B University? We will always protect Jiang Yuning!
When the students saw the graduates from prestigious universities such as Harvard, MIT, and Cambridge standing up for Jiang Yuning, they could only keep their mouth shut.
What else could they do when these people were from the most prestigious universities around the world?
How could they refute them?
The matter continued escalating in B University&x2019;s forum for a couple of days before each and everyone of them finally shut up because of the Ginger Candies&x2019; academic qualifications.
Who were they looking down on?
Vera was also furious at first and she was already thinking of all sorts of public relations methods to deal with the situation. However, the Ginger Candies had somehow unexpectedly resolved the matter by appearing on B University&x2019;s forum and shutting up all of the students immeidately.
&x201C;Yuning, this is good news. The Ginger Candies are more and more united nowadays,&x201D; Vera said as she was really pleased with their performance.
&x201C;Me too. I did not expect them to protect me in this manner,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she was also very impressed with the Ginger Candies. &x201C;I have already decided that my next live broadcast with the Ginger Candies will definitely be longer than half an hour!&x201D;
&x201C;Then, you had better take advantage and make use of the time that you have left to stream your live broadcast before the filming for begins. As for the matter relating to B University, I will have to find out who leaked the information out to the public. Who are they trying to mess with? Did they think that we do not have any temper at all?&x201D; Vera replied immediately. Now that Jiang Yuning was already very popular in the entertainment industry, there were a lot of things that they could do without beating around the bush.
&x201C;Alright then, I will be waiting for your news.&x201D; In fact, Jiang Yuning already had some vague suspicions in her heart. &x201C;Perhaps you can focus your investigation on&x2026;Zhong Hongyu.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you think that this was her doing?&x201D;
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t we humiliate her the other night? Although she would not dare to spread any rumors out in the open, I am certain that she would definitely be trying all sorts of ways to get her revenge on me. You should also check up on Young Master Lin,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied indifferently.
Vera nodded her head. &x201C;You can relax and not worry about it. I will come to the bottom of this matter for you. What do you intend to do if you find out that Zhong Hongyu is indeed the one who leaked the information out to the public?&x201D;
&x201C;Since she seem to be unable to stop reminiscing about the past, then&x2026;I will help her relive her college days once again.&x201D;
