Hello, I am a thirteen year old in eight gold. I have lived in Shanghai for 3 years (this being my third) and before that, I lived in California for all my years up until middle school. Over the course of this trip, I would like to be able to observe and compare the way people in the Yunnan area live compared to Shanghai. I am often described as weird with a "special" sense of humor. On the other hand, my friends depict me as a calm, respectable, and righteous person. I am very grateful to be a part of such a unique experience this year and hope to be able learn and grow.
