Graduates 2017-2018 Spring 2018

Senior Profile: Jay Quimby (Chinese Studies, ’18)

QuimbyMy interest in Chinese language and culture began when I lived in Hong Kong and Beijing for middle school and high school.  During my time at William and Mary as a double major in Chinese and Government, I was able to further expand my knowledge of China while thinking about how to aid US-China relations in the future.  I enjoyed academically exploring Chinese culture and language at a deeper level in interesting classes with great faculty in the Chinese department.  I hope that, with my understanding of Chinese culture and language fostered by the great Chinese program at William and Mary, I’ll be able to help foster peace and mutual prosperity between China and the United States as a diplomat.
