I am a senior who graduated from a high school in Orlando, FL (home of Mickey Mouse), but my family has since moved to Seattle, WA. I was born in Shanghai, China, and lived there until I was four-and-a-half years old. I am double majoring in Biology and Chinese. I'm happy to say that I have been involved with Duke China Care since freshman year and
previously served as External Affairs, Fundraising Coordinator, and VP. I love music, movies, hiking, and meeting
Hi! I am a senior from Atlanta, GA (Go Falcons!) and am majoring in neuroscience. I have been involved with
the National China Care Foundation since freshman year of high school and have been an active member of DCC
all my years at Duke. For the past two years I served as DCC's playgroup coordinator but am excited to be taking
on a different role as vice president this year. I am also a member of Duke Chinese Dance and teach dance classes
at the Chapel Hill Chinese School. In my free time I love to dance, doodle, eat, and volunteer.
I am a junior, and a lot of people pronounce my name as 'Hi-C.' I am originally
from Tianjin, China and grew up ten minutes away from a medieval castle in Heidelberg, Germany. I love trees
and marshes; I hope to one day work in the environmental sector, but for the time being,
I am content with hiking through the wilderness every so often. Another aspiration of
mine is to raise a beehive at my future home. Apiaries are great for pollination, plus
you get to harvest pounds and pounds of honey each year. Spending time with children
makes me happy, and I especially adore my China Care mentee.

Shandong Province and spent ten years living in the city of Tai'an. I

cooking, watching movies, and traveling. Besides DCC, I am also
involved with Teach for China and work part-time in a research lab.

music, watch Taiwanese drama shows, and play basketball.
