Day 28: Why I Came to Microcampus

I came to Microcampus because I thought it was time to grow up, to learn independence, and prepare.

I've often dreamt of travelling, of going places, and seeing things, knowing the beauty of the world and all it entails. To fall in love with sights and moment and places, to be filled with such wanderlust that you burst.

But how does one do that when they have not even left home?

I wanted to have an amazing experience.

And so I did.

Now, that I'm leaving, I feel anguish yet exhilarated that I am one step closer to the dream I have built in my head. I know that I was born to live out my time wasting daydream and that am courageous enough to do what I wish.

I came to Microcampus because I yearned for something new, something that would make me feel the elation and accomplishment I was so familar with once before.

And so I did.

My name is Ryane and I am a fourteen year old student in SAS Puxi. My interest in Microcampus stemmed from a desire to participate in something outside of my sheltered metropolitan lifestyle where everything is done for me and I am painfully inexperienced. I have lived in Shanghai for eight years now but was born in Taipei, Taiwan to an English speaking family of six cousins and numerous relatives. I have left Xizhou and missing it most painfully, however, I am happy and excited for all future Microcampers and the amazing experience they will experience. Be good to T and Ms. Mai!
