My name is Honor Leahy, and I am from Nashville, TN. I am graduating with a double major in Chinese Language and Literature and Marketing. I am so thankful to have been a student of the incredible, encouraging, and supportive Chinese program. During my time at The College, I have held various leadership positions in organizations such as the Undergraduate Honor Council, School House Block, and Delta Delta Delta social sorority. One of my favorite involvements at The College has been interning at the Confucius Institute, where I have had the opportunity to work with Chinese mentors and promote Chinese culture events on campus and in the community. As a 2017 Boren scholarship recipient, I will be heading to Guilin, China after graduation to study Chinese language at the Chinese Language Institute for an academic year. I am looking forward to developing my Chinese proficiency far into the future and establishing a career in national security.
