8/15/2016 – Pre-departure thoughts…

By August 15, 2016August 31st, 2016Marriott Tianjin China Program

In a couple of days I’ll be setting out to biggest adventure of my life yet.  ✈️   I will be living in China for 4 months while studying Hospitality and Tourism Management at Tianjin University of Commerce.  I can’t wait to be impacted by China’s intricate culture and to learn side by side with the Chinese students!

This is the first time I will be apart from my family for this amount of time, living with a roommate, and being away from my puppy lol!  I’m feeling both excited and nervous for this journey as are my friends and family.  Even though this program is all I have been talking about since January, it seems that it’s finally becoming real and the emotions are running deep.

Overall, I am so excited about this experience & grateful for the opportunity!! I hope what I learn about the Chinese culture can set me aside as a global citizen, and I hope to learn more about myself throughout the way.
