About This Learner

Hi, my name is Vanessa. Xizhou has changed me completely, from personality to the way of thinking. I created loads of amazing memories with the FEARLESS family in this magnificent, life-changing, month long trip. I will never forget the memories I made at Xi Zhou as a member of the Fearless group.
