Day 25: Service Learning, Service Learning and More Service Learning

Today was a long day of work. As one of the two Chinese speakers in my service learning group, I spent the whole day translating and putting together our service learning movie. I had breaks only for the daily meeting, lunch and dinner. Fortunately, the movie is almost done! We will be presenting it tomorrow at the celebration! On the way to lunch I raced Hugh, John, William and Maggie to Old Town Snacks because we all wanted to eat there. As only four people are allowed to eat in one restaurant at a time and no one can eat alone, the three people who got to Old Town Snacks first got to eat there. Those three people were Maggie, Hugh and I! Tomorrow we have a possible trip to Dali Old Town, which I am really excited about. Only 2 more days in XiZhou, but who's counting?


Wow sounds like your a fast runner

Hi Sasha,

So excited you will be coming home soon.  This has been really tough for your family to be away from you for this long.  Usually the months fly by but this month is crawling!!!  We miss you terribly!!!

Wow glad to hear when you want something you can run really fast.  That is very funny.  Hope it was fun to race everyone.  Sounds like all your projects are coming to an end.  Glad that you are doing the translation and that your Chinese is good enough to do that.  Wow.  Hopefully after you finish your service learning project you will have some rest and relaxation time.

Can't wait to see you on Friday!



Hi Sasha,

Hi Sasha,

I am sharing your journal experiences with Rowan.  We both enjoy hearing about you winning a race to a restaurant!  It sounds like you are having some great adventures!

Love,  Susan

My name is Sasha and I am 13 years old. I am from Ann Arbor Michigan where I was born and lived until my family and I moved to Shanghai when I was 10. In my family I am the oldest of five children (2 younger brothers and 2 younger sisters). For the past 3 and a half years I have been working on learning Chinese and I am currently in Chinese Literature 1. Some of my passions include designing, acting and traveling. For our Inquiry projects we have each chose a topic of high person interest to study in XiZhou. I chose wood carving as my Inquiry Project and made a carving as my final product! Microcampus was an amazing experience that will always remember!
