This is Phase 0, the beginning of our Inquiry Project. At the start, two projects interested me the most: Music and End-of-Life Rituals. I ended up choosing Music because I don't really have a connection with End-Of-Life Rituals. I haven't experienced a close family member passing away, and I have never been to a funeral.

About This Learner

I am 13 years old and this year will be my 7th year living in Shanghai. I have lived in two countries: U.S.A and China. Even though I have lived in China for a long time, I haven't traveled to many cities here. I am interested to see how different our lives are from the people's lives in XiZhou, because we live in such different environments. The Microcampus trip was great! I loved meeting the people here, and the scenery is amazing. Feel free to read my journals to see the highlights of my trip!
