About Me

Welcome to my blog!

Whether you’re here as a student, international student, or just someone curious about me and my adventures, thanks for stopping by to check out my blog! I hope this blog gives you a little window into the musings of a passionate world-traveler, who loves to be intertwined with the lives of all kinds of people. I’ll be posting reflections on here mostly related to the Global Engagement Fellowship Program at the University of Oklahoma.

What drives me

I am passionate about languages and meeting new people of all different tribes and tongues. Chinese is my second language, but I’m hoping to go on to learn even more languages. Although this blog will mostly focus on my experiences as a global citizen, I’m actually a pre-medicine major, so you may see a few posts on here about science and health too!

Global Engagement Fellowship

A major part of my blog and college experience at the University of Oklahoma is the Global Engagement Fellowship, a relatively new program designed to equip OU students with experiences and perspectives to succeed in the global community, regardless of their field of study. I applied for the Global Engagement Fellowship Program at OU because I wanted to study abroad and become more sensitive to all the history that is unfolding around the world. Having been abroad a few times, I have realized how uneducated I am when it comes to other countries’ cultures and beliefs, and how beneficial it can be to see the world from another culture’s perspective. By becoming globally engaged, I hope to be exposed to people’s life experiences and stories that could vicariously become my own. I want to forge lasting friendships with other global citizens, both American and foreign, because two heads are always better than one, especially when it comes to global issues. I expect that this program will make me a more globally sensitive member of society, and consequently, a global citizen.
