Day 24: Service Learning

Today we worked on our service learning project as our priority. We handed in our storyboards at around 9 am. Mr. T was very helpful in giving us tips about our service learning video. During the daily meeting, Mr. T said that our service learning partners have to come. I got quite scared because I did not know if Mr. Zhang would be able to come or not. I knew he had a family business and so I thought he would not be able to join us on Wednesday. At lunch, I went to ask Ms. Zhang, his daughter and she said she will tell him to come which was a relief. The days have been quite busy.

We saw Ella and Griffon yesterday. They came back to XiZhou with their families. It was cool to see Microcampus Alumni back in XiZhou. It is also a bit nerve racking to know that they will be watching our service learning videos. Mr. Evans and Mr. McSwiney should land in XiZhou today. They will also be attending our service learning showcase. It is a lot of work and pressure but I know we can pull through. Ella told me that this is the hardest time of the trip. This is when things our closing off and we are starting to get ready for our re-entry at school in Shanghai. I can not believe we have only 3 whole days left.

My name is Annie Y. I am part of the Superior Microcampus group. As of March 4, 2017, I arrived in Xizhou. We stayed in Xizhou for 28 days. Those 28 days has been such a unforgettable experience. I got to connect with the people here. They were very nice and welcoming. The weather was really nice. There was pretty blue skies and puffy white clouds. I miss everything about Xizhou and the Microcampus experience.
