Day 28: Why I Came To Microcampus

I have been staying in Xizhou for 28 days. Before coming to Xizhou I applied to the Microcamous journey. Microcampus has been a great experience, and I have learned so much from it. I thought I came to Microcampus to experience the culture, but after being here for 28 days, I have realized why I really came. 

I came to Xizhou not only to get away from the Shanghai bubble, but to get out of my comfort zone, and learn more about myself. During my Microcampus journey, I have learned a lot about me as a person and a student. I have had some bumps along the way, but I am very grateful for them because they have brought the best out of me. I have used the tools Mr. Tafel had given me, and I made myself the normal great Saleem I am. Mr. Tafel had given me so much help along the way, and I would like to thank him for all of the patience he has for us. 

After being in Microcampus, I have learned so much. Thank you, Mr. Tafel, for the great experience in Xizhou



My name is Saleem E. I am 13 years old and my favorite sport is soccer. I am back in Shanghai, but I am missing beautiful Xizhou. My inquiry project was woodcarving, but I changed it to Myths/Stories/Legends in Xizhou. Xizhou was a great experience and not only did it teach me many valuable lessons that I will take with me through my journey of life, but it also taught our group valuable lessons. I would like to thank Mr. Tafel and Ms. Mai for their support and patience during this trip. Microcampus has opened up my eyes, and after going to Xizhou I view our world in a totally different way. Thank you Xizhou.
