I'm a 13 year old boy named Austin, and I'm really glad to been able to go to Xizhou. I was born and raised in California for 3 years, then moving on to China since. I have lived in China for 10 years, 9 years with SAS. I'm excited to join this excellent opportunity to test my limits and find my interests. I love basketball and adventures with action that require physical strength. I like a challenge that requires teamwork and fun. I love scenery and photography and I believe this is a great chance to pursue my passion. Xizhou was a great experience and I have taken much knowledge from this village. I am glad I signed up and I will never forget the learning and the fun I had during this trip.
