“Bittersweet” is the best way to describe my feeling towards China. This journey will always have a special place in my heart with all of my memories that I created. I wanted to thank FIU for offering this opportunity to your students. As a transfer student, I will never forget my first semester as an FIU student. The past couple of weeks have been pretty rough because this will be my first Thanksgiving without my family. I am very grateful for the students to put together a nice Thanksgiving dinner for us. I was so much fun — we were listening to music and we played games together.
Living in China for the past four months have been life-changing. I am super grateful for this journey, and I will never forget the people that I have met here. I can’t believe that I did everything that I wanted to do including taking a last minute trip to Thailand. If you are a student and you have the opportunity to study abroad, please take advantage of it. It will give you a better perspective of the world and let you open your mind for new things. I fell in love with China and I hope one day I can return to visit again.
