Global Education

I believe culture plays an important role in shaping one’s identity. My global education experience makes me always open to different voices and prepares me to think as a global citizen.

The University of Texas at Austin

May 2019

Originally from China, I bravely came to the U.S. alone and started my college education at UT. Joys as well as tears. Thanks to UT’s general education curriculum, I discovered my passion for people and change, internally transferred to Mccombs School of Business with a 4.0 GPA after a year’s exploration, and declared marketing as my major. What’s more, huge language barriers and cultural differences made me minor in psychology and actively promote mental health to international students.

Athens Centre

May 2017

It is a faculty-lead BBA Finance Maymester program and I spent a month in Athens, Greece with my Mccombs classmates. I studied Finance, explored Greek culture, made two fantastic American friends, and ate countless yummy gyros.

Waseda University

August 2016 – May 2017

Influenced by Japanese dramas and animes, I applied the 6-week Summer Japanese language Immersion Program in Tokyo by myself and flew to Japan with zero Japanese language skills. 東京はとても忙しい。楽しかった。Clean, convenient, fast, and well-organized. A good country for traveling.

 Suzhou, China

Past – 2015

Born and raised in this city a perfect combination of ancient and modern beauty. I enjoy convenience brought by the fast economic and technological development but also enjoy culture influenced by rich history and unique art. The city helps me develop an innovative and future-oriented perspective of thinking but a leisure and comfortable style of living.
