International Experience: King's College London
Location: London, UK

I grew up in Orlando, Florida and am currently a senior concentrating in East Asian Studies with a certificate in Ethnographic Studies. My main area of study revolves around the history and politics of China, although I have taken several courses on literature and art in East Asia. This summer I traveled to Taiwan to conduct thesis research at the National Palace Museum in Taipei. I’ve always been interested in cross-cultural exchanges and have taken every opportunity to foster dialogue and intercultural awareness. After Freshman year, I participated in a Chinese language immersion program through Princeton in Beijing. This was my first extended period of time abroad, and the following summer I worked in Shanghai through an IIP. This past year I spent the spring semester in London at King’s College where I took East Asian Studies courses as well as Anthropology courses.
