Hi! My name is Jacob, and I’m a rising junior at Clark High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. I enjoy drawing, debating, and listening to music. I took French for three years, and though I’ve never taken a Chinese class, I’ve always been interested in the development of China and its current events. I went to Beijing back when I was 13 in 8th grade on a school trip, but it really wasn’t off the beaten path at all, so I’m thrilled to be going on this trip.
