I am a senior, 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.
Hi, I am Shannon, a junior at Duke planning on majoring in Economics. I was born and raised near
Washington D.C., in Alexandria, VA. I have been involved in China Care since my freshman year and
absolutely love hanging out with all of the kids and my mentee, Lucie, every week. My other interests
include eating food, playing music with my friends, exercising, and traveling.
Hi! I am Catherine, a junior majoring in Chemistry. I was raised in LA, but I've always considered
my hometown to be Guangzhou, China. Joining China Care has allowed me to share my love for Chinese culture
with the wonderful (and super cute) girls here. Outside of school and China Care, I like to listen to
music, watch Taiwanese drama shows, and play basketball.
Hi I'm Leanna and majoring in computer science with a minor in finance. I'm from a small town,
Flemington, in New Jersey and have been involved in China Care since freshman year. I truly love
working with all the cute and sweet kids here, especially my mentee, Olivia. In my free time,
I love taking pictures, eating food, and taking pictures of food.
I am a senior from Bartlesville, Oklahoma majoring in biomedical engineering. I joined China Care my freshman
year and currently serve as the webmaster. In addition to China Care, I am involved with volunteering in the Duke
Hospital and writing for the DukEngineer. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, reading,
playing basketball, and cooking.
