Participant Profile: Grace Chen

Grace was born and grew up in a fairly young city, Shenzhen, which has only forty years of history and consists of people from all parts of China. This probably explains why she looks forward to places with strong cultural atmosphere. Studying in the US and living with a host family broadened her global perspective and also prompted her to see more parts of the world. After traveling to countries in Europe, Asia and North America, she’s excited to visit Urubamba, Peru to learn about the culture and contribute to improving community health. In her high school, she organized fundraising for childhood cancer research and also engaged in other social service activities. In her free time, Grace loves to read and paint. She has a love for science, and is excited to see what this experience brings her and who it inspires her to be in the future.
