Hello Everyone! My name is Daniel Thompson and I am vlogging to you live from East China Normal University in Shanghai, China. I am a graduate of Central Islip Public Schools, which is located in Long Island NY, and am currently enrolled at Lebanon Valley College majoring in sociology with a minor in law and society.

My power to connect with students emanates from my roots. Growing up in an “at-risk” community, I have always stood out as an “at-promise” candidate. As a middle school and high school student working the Global Prose program, a Mentor Up and Give Back non-profit, I worked first-hand as a Student Representative for our Human Rights Day at Community Colleges. I participated and co-facilitated at the United Nations Conference on Education. My commitment to education and giving back is unparalleled.

I love to sing and write. Music has always been a strong base in my life. I still have dreams of becoming a Trey Songs or Bruno Mars, but we will he how far that goes - ha-ha. I love to joke and take really long walks on the beach.

Follow my journey as I take you on a wild experience in Shanghai, China!
