My name is Sofia. I have lived in San Francisco for all of my life. I am excited for this trip because I have never been to Asia and don’t know a lot about Chinese culture. Some hobbies/interests I have are playing the guitar, piano, I like reading, and skateboarding. I am super excited for the experience of being away from home and with friends as well as learning more about the culture and daily life in China. It will be scary to be a new country where I don’t speak the language, but I am mostly filled with excitement.
