Even though I've been in China for almost three weeks now (!) my internet has been spotty to the point that I can just now make my first blog post.
First things first- A little set up for who I am and why I'm here.
That's me! I'm 19, in my freshman year at the University of Utah, majoring in Political Science and Economics.
I am here with the organization International Language Programs. (http://www.ilp.org/) I teach English for twenty hours a week and get to spend the rest of my time adventuring.
I'm living in Quanzhou, pronounced twin-joe, on the southern coast.
Hopefully by the end of my time interning here I will have a better grasp on Chinese language and culture, and a global perspective on education.
