At the beginning of this journey I was required to narrow down different topics that I thought were interesting. It was hard because the list was extensive that there were many topics I wanted to choose.  There were many possible topics such as: Ethnic Minority Issues, Local Governance, Government Graffiti, Bai Minority Culture (e.x dance, clothing, music), Local Recreation, Tea Traditions, Body Language, Wood Carving, Religious Studies or Architecture.

As my Phase 1 is now completed and approved I am able to move on to Phase 2. The purpose of Phase 2 is to sort through the resources I have found already and to make sure that they are useful and checked so that the information would be real.

The purpose of Phase 3 is to provide a workspace where all information I have gathered can be shown in one space. I have chosen to organize my information in the format of background information being first, 3-5 information being second, local contact information being third and fourth being my answers to my previous questions in phase 1.

In the past few weeks I have been actively researching, and experiencing Bai Minority Music. In order to fathom the authenticity of Bai Minority Music, one most take note of the different phases as in illusion, revelation and what you choose to do. At the beginning I was sure that I wanted to investigate the different instruments that create Bai Minority Music and how the music differed from more modern, young music. Bai Minority Music tells stories through each song.

About This Learner

Hello! I'm 13 years old and in 8th grade. I'm from Hong Kong and this is my 1st year in Shanghai. I was born in Hong Kong and lived there for 8 years, moved to Beijing for 4 and now I'm in Shanghai. I'm half cantonese, half taiwanese. Some of my hobbies include drawing, playing badminton, singing, and playing the piano and guitar. I have a huge passion for music and it's one of the biggest influences in my life. I've played guitar for 1 1/2 years and the piano for 10 years now. Now that I'm back in Shanghai I don't feel at all regretful that I chose to come on this journey. I miss the clear starry nights of Xizhou, the fresh air and the sense of calm being there gives me. This was an experience that I will never forget and I wish the future Microcampus kids the best of luck in their journey to come!
