Why did you choose this program? I chose this program because the high degree of integration among American, Asian, and European continents was the chance of a lifetime. I was attracted to this program two years ago when I abandoned a potential graduate entrance opportunity to Peking University and Fudan University in China. This unique global experience will not only expand my global horizons but will also help me learn more about myself and achieve my career goals.

What do you enjoy about the program so far? I enjoy the considerate, professional partnership of the three schools; my classmates, with their diverse backgrounds and their study-hard-play-hard attitude; the comfy and convenient accommodation and infrastructure; and the gorgeous landscape and weather.

What has surprised you? I was surprised by our amazing apartments. I was also surprised by the active and excellent participation of my classmates in class and on assignments. I also appreciate the UVA and American college cultures.

Fun facts: This May, I traveled alone to Singapore for five days, without any prior planning, to seek the meaning of life and connection with the world. In August, I wrote 20 essays and received many views and feedback.

Hobbies: Tennis, classical music, reading, writing, meditation, travel, learning languages, working out, and deep communication
