Why I Am Here

I am here, in Microcampus, to learn, to explore all life has to offer, and to understand myself better. The learning we did here is so much greater than what can be offered in school. To genuinely learn about myself, the community, and the world around me is something a textbook cannot teach. I keep on saying this, but every day I felt I am learning new things, from architecture to local life to TCM to myself. Everything I do here, I learn from it. In Microcampus, I also stepped out of my comfort zone many times. The hike to HuaDianBa was by far the biggest step, by doing that I learnt I can accomplish almost anything as long as I set my mind to it. I learnt that I can take care of myself in the real world. This trip not only taught me about the real life people live in and Traditional Chinese Medicine, but also it has mostly taught me about myself. In Xizhou I am in tune with nature, in tune with myself. It is absolutely wonderful. This is why I am here.

Hi I'm Peyton, and I was part of the B4 Microcampus group (March-April 2013). The Microcampus experience was really amazing and I was so glad that I was a part of the B4 Microcampus group. My Inquiry project wason Traditional Chinese Medicine. Please feel free to look at my blog posts anytime!
