    “Studying abroad has greatly expanded my professional, personal and academic goals. It really made me want to continue improving my Mandarin language ability so I can go back to China to live and work. Through this, I’ve also become very interested in what China is doing to improve its environment and how they can address these concerns to communities affected by environmental issues the most.”
