Day 21: Still looking for a Service Learning Partner...

Time has gone by so quickly! We only have a week left until we are back home in the "Shanghai Bubble". We have made various connections while we were here, I have been attempting talking to many people even if my Chinese skills are limited. The sky has been greyer in the past few days and the temperature has gone down, which means winter is around the corner. Chris L. and I went out to look for more potential partners with some other peers. We have met great people in the past few days but sadly, most have already been a service-learning partner. Luckily, today Chris and I talked to a man we have known from previous days named Wang Ye Ye, Wang Ye Ye is a Xizhou baba seller. Tomorrow we will ask him if he is interested to be in our service learning video, hopefully, he will say yes. Tomorrow is Saturday which means I will be able to relax and sleep in. Tonight in the evening I also plan to work on my inquiry project.  

Hi there! My name is Ana M. and I am a proud representative of the Ultimate Microcampus group! I was born in the United States, but since I was 4 I have been living in different places like Brazil and China. I am now back in Shanghai and I am getting used to my old schedule. Being a part of the November-December 2017 trip was the best decision I have ever made. I will remember the great and the not-so-great parts of the trip. I have been able to learn many life lessons and I hope to carry these forever. I am missing the fresh air, the delicious food, and being able to see the brightest stars at night!
