Hi, it's Grace W.! I was a part of the Phenomena group, the best and most wonderful group of all. I am from the Bay Area of California, where I was born and raised before moving to Shanghai in 6th grade. I enjoy activities relevant to creative art, swimming, outdoor adventures, and music -- I brought my violin on the trip. Microcampus has been such an amazing experience, and I what I miss the most about Microcampus and Xizhou are the freedom for exploration, the process of connecting with the friendly and open locals, and the experience of positive impact. I have definitely achieved all the four focuses (personal growth, intercultural understanding, experiential learning, and positive impact) in ways I could never imagine, from my unique experience at Microcampus.
