My name is Jason M., and I was born in Carmel, Indiana. I was raised there for about 8 years of my life before moving to Shanghai in 2011. Once I moved back, I attended school at SMIC. A year later, I transferred to SAS and I have been there for about five years. Considering that I have lived in Shanghai for almost half my life, I wanted to try something new. I wanted to see what local China was like, so I decided to attend the Microcampus trip. Based off of the feedback from previous participants, I think I will enjoy this trip and I can't wait for our departure to Xizhou.
