My name is Amanda Tung and I’m from Hong Kong. I have been a student at Pomona College in Claremont for the past two years but I am transferring to Brown University next Spring as a new Junior! I am currently a history major with particular interest in the cultural differences between Asia and the US, but I have always had a passion for the arts (musical theatre, dance and singing).
I have been studying in the US since high school, and being away for so long has led me to realize the importance of understanding and appreciating my home and Country. I have been to China many times before but I usually only go to Shanghai or Beijing. I am eager to maintain and improve my Chinese skills. I wanted to take this opportunity to go to places I have never seen before, and fully immerse myself to other aspects of China. This is a little out of my comfort zone as I am not a very adventurous person but I am excited to do something different and exciting before I start my new journey at a new school! I can’t wait to meet you all in person!!
