Description

This past year has provided me with a new perspective on global awareness. Specifically dealing with China and its culture, my goal is to enlighten others about what I have experienced and researched about the eastern identity. Last summer, I had the opportunity to travel to Jiaozhou, China and teach English to people of a variety of ages. Upon returning home, the Honors Program gave me the chance to work with our Chinese students as one of their Conversation Partners. After working so closely with the culture, I decided to create a magazine to showcase how western and eastern identities compare. Highlighting my personal experience, my work with the international students, interviews with current professors and external research, I want to focus on how our cultures are more similar than society makes them to be.
