Hello! I will be spending 28 days in a village called Xizhou, Yunnan, a province in China. I am currently still in Shanghai, and just selected a topic I would want to investigate more about. I was only interested in these three topics: love and marriage, religious studies, and local spirits/stories/legends. I did not struggle in trying to narrow my selections to 3-5 choices, but instead, I struggled on narrowing these three topics to one. At first, I had the same amount of interest in all of them, and it took a while to figure out the rankings of each project. Then, I received Mr.

What do I already know?

In Phase 4 I would be preparing to share my learning about my project from the past days. In Phase 0, I selected one topic out of many pages of other topics available for me.

About This Learner

Hello there! My name is Dora and my roots are in Taiwan, although, I have been in Shanghai for more than 10 years now. I have heard of the Microcampus program last year, and I absolutely wanted to join. I was in Xizhou with the 23rd group, Wildfires, and made connections with the welcoming residents, studied their culture, and learned about ourselves. I completed both my inquiry and service learning projects which I am extremely proud of. Microcampus had been an extraordinary trip, and the main source for all my life changing moments and experiences that I have in my pockets.
