I am a Chinese and English double major. During my years at the College, I have been very involved with the William and Mary Rowing team, holding an executive position and serving as Men’s Varsity Team Captain. In the summer of 2012, I studied Chinese at Middlebury College’s Summer Language School. This experience accelerated my understanding of Chinese, laying the foundation for a solid senior year with the Chinese department. Through studying Chinese language and culture at William and Mary, I have gained a deep appreciation for Chinese culture, both ancient and modern, as well as my own American culture. I plan to continue to study Chinese language and culture, both in China and in the US.
