Hi, my name is Kate and I am 13 years old. I am originally from Houston, Texas. But I have lived in Texas, Dubai and Shanghai. I loved being a part of the Microcampus group. It was an amazing experience. I think that everyone should join Microcampus if they are given the chance. I had a great time here and at the end I was ready to spend another month in Xizhou. So much fun.
