For a month in 2016, 12 students have traveled to the beautiful Xizhou. The goal of this trip was to get out of our comfort zone and out of our 'bubble' life in Shanghai. In Xizhou, I worked on an Inquiry Project where I had researched on a topic that interest me. While I was looking at the list of all the possible projects there were a few that caught my eye. I needed a project that would keep my attention for all the 28 days that I was on the trip.

In Phase 1, I created ten questions that would help me start my interactions with the people of Xizhou. In Phase 2, I have found in depth answers to these questions and created new questions.
 

About This Learner

Hello, my name is Alba and my time in Xizhou has now ended. I am 13 years old and I attend Shanghai American School. I have lived in Shanghai for 8 years now. Before that I lived in Indonesia, Vietnam and Japan. I wanted to join the Microcampus program to experience living out of the "bubble" life. I was a part of the O.R.E.O spring Microcampus trip of 2016. I am so happy I got to come here and learn about my inquiry project, bond with locals, have personal growth and develop more intercultural understanding!
