Introducing Myself

Hi everyone! My name is Makayla Romanus. I live in Doylestown, PA which is about an hour north of Philadelphia. I am really excited to meet you all next week! I also run Cross Country and Track.  A little about me: my favorite bands right now are the Lumineers and Hippo Campus. I really enjoy photography and love spontaneous adventures.

I have been very interested in Chinese culture from a young age and have actually been taking Mandarin for the last two years. I am looking forward to connecting with a group of people who share a similar interest in experiencing new cultures, people, and adventures regardless of the comfort level. I can’t wait to experience the culture hands-on whether that be through trying local cuisines or appreciating the landscape.

I love traveling and actually had the opportunity to go on another student travel trip a few years ago. I feel that the Silk Road program will better equip me with the knowledge of traveling respectfully and independently.

See you all soon!
