Nicole Introduction

Hi, I’m Nicole van Brugge. I’m in the 10th grade at Riverdale Country School and am in Chinese III. I love pretty much anything having to do with art and music. My goals are to improve my Chinese by talking to native speakers as much as possible, make meaningful connections with my hosts and to get to know everyone in the group very well. My favorite quote from “Why We Travel” is “Travel in that sense guides us toward a better balance of wisdom and compassion — of seeing the world clearly, and yet feeling it truly.”
