Hi everyone!

My name is Zoe and I’m from Burlingame, California, a suburb just south of San Francisco. I graduated from high school last spring and I’ll be starting college in the upcoming fall. I spent three months this past fall in Ireland with a program that involved traveling, hiking and volunteering all over the country. I’ve been to China before, but this would be my first time in Yunnan province and anywhere rural.

Some things about me:

  • I like drawing and art in general
  • I enjoy reading, and my interests range from history to sci-fi
  • I like being outdoors in general and hiking (although I’m not very good at it)
  • I studied Mandarin when I was younger and I’m currently learning Spanish

I’m looking forward to meeting you all and to going on this course together!
