In the middle school speaking competition, Gu Tianai used her specialties working together with Yang Yuwen and Hao Yinjia to create the drama "Sparks of Life". Under the guidance of teacher Shi Suping, Cai Yun and Wu Ying, the drama used the form of time travel to bring unique feelings to the judges. While mastering her own performance part, Gu Tianai also actively participated in the discussion and made suggestions throughout the process.

In the rehearsal for the provincial competition, Gu Tianai did her best to carefully understand every detail and make suggestions on acting movements and expressions, etc. After two days of rehearsal, each character had gone through the transformation and became more vivid. For her teammates, Gu Tianai has always been encouraging. The only 7th grader in the Nanjing team said: "Whenever I am nervous on the stage, I think about her courage, I will not be nervous anymore." Finally, through cooperation with other teammates, they won the provincial team special prize.
