I am a photographer, frequent instagram user, and semi-model. My travel interest and favorite shots to capture are trying new foods or any body of water (especially waterfalls!) I am the youngest of two and the first in my family to go to college and to travel outside the country. I attend a historically black university and have spent my last two summers in the San Francisco Bay Area interning as a software engineer for Visa and eBay.
I am most excited to experience the challenge and culture shock that will occur learning how to navigate a huge city like Shanghai. I am also excited to utilize what I learn in the Mandarin course and utilize it outside the classroom to build friendships with the local people of Shanghai.
