What’s one personal goal you hope to achieve while abroad?
A personal goal of mine is to speak Chinese more fluently! I have been learning Chinese for a while, but I rarely get the opportunity to speak it. During my semester in Shanghai, I look forward to speaking Chinese on a daily basis.

You can look forward to content about the local food, professionalism in China, China’s innovative technology and many more! I hope this will encourage more people to study and intern abroad.
