Microcampus is a one in a life time opportunity to expand students horizon at a young age. For the period of Microcampus students stay in Xi Zhou for a month to learn about the culture there. During the 28 days students are required to work on a project, also known as an "Inquiry project". The student picks a topic before their departure to Xizhou, and does extensive research about it. This is me going through the process of picking my project.

About This Learner

My full name is Diego. I was born in Mexico 14 years ago in a state by the name of Chihuahua. I lived there for the next five years of my life, I have moved to three countries since then including China. I have lived here for the past four years. Even after all that time I would not consider my Chinese fluent, however I can get by. Some of my interests include reading, watching animated films, and sports. Interests aside, I have a passion for animals and someday hope to be a renowned Zoologist (The scientific study of the behavior, structure, physiology, classification, and distribution of animals). I am extremely grateful and excited to be able to take part in the Jailbreak trip. I am greatly enjoying studying the culture and people of Xi Zhou. My inquiry project is Woodcarving. I looking forward to studying it for the duration of my time that I have left in Xizhou
