Starting on March 7th, I will be embarking on a new journey, a journey that will take me all the way to Xizhou for 28 days. During this month in Yunnan, I will be working on an inquiry project about a topic that interests me. I was offered a variety of choices for my topic of investigation, but after careful consideration, deliberation and through the feedback I received, I eventually narrowed down my choices.

About This Learner

I’m Ashley, a 13-year-old 8th grader at Shanghai American School. I’m from Hong Kong and have lived in Shanghai for 10 years. Some things I enjoy are track and field, rugby and soccer. This crazy adventure I have had in Xizhou has been one of the most challenging, yet most memorable experiences I have ever experienced. This chance to step outside the "bubble" and connect with the locals has helped me grow as a student, as a learner and as a person. These unforgettable 28 days at Microcampus is something that I will forever look back at in the future.
