Our Service Learning partner was called Deng Xiufang. She is 70 years old and was born in Lijiang, she is part of the Naxi Minority.
We learned that our friend is very nice and polite. She has been through various history events and been through more hard times in China history
Xizhou did not get affected as much by history events such as the Cultural Revolution, people here were more polite, they were much more educated.
We learned that the Cultural Revolution affected China deeply. There were times that were not as glorious as China wishes.
We recommend that:
- Start earlier, get tons more footage than you need to.
- Take time on your editing, pay attention to detail.
- Get more pictures of your partner, their house. MORE PICTURES!
