About This Learner

Hi! My name is Vanessa and I am 13 years old. I was a part of the winter 2013 microcampus trip. I was born in Nagoya, Japan on March 28th 2000, and I moved to China in 2006. This is my 7th year in Shanghai, and 3rd year in SAS Puxi. I was extremely excited to be in the microcampus trip! I felt passionate to be apart of the trip from the second I heard about it. To me, this trip is about leaving the bubble of SAS, and experience the life in the "real" China. I loved discovering new knowledge to expand on prior skills in Xzihou. The trip to Xizhou is definitely a trip and memory that I will cherish forever. I really miss my time Xizhou and I wish I can revisit Xizhou again.
