I spent all four summers of high school in China: in 2007, I studied in Beijing and Chengdu, lived with host families, and traveled to Tibet. In 2008, I studied at Beijing Yinyue Xueyuan as well as Fudan University in Shanghai. In 2009, I studied at Dali University in Dali, a smaller city in the southwest of China, and did community service in the rural village of Shaxi. In 2010, I worked as a student ambassador at the USA Pavilion during the Shanghai World Expo. I’ve been all over China – Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Xian, Chengdu, Dali, Kunming, Hong Kong, Tibet, and more- and have had some great experiences!
