Chinese education is important so I spent a lot of time studying for exams.

I was tired of education in China, I wanted to try something new and decided to come to America.

What were your first thoughts about coming to the United States of America?

New countries, new language I was excited but a little nervous.

There are a lot of things different than China, like taking the bus, living in a dorm room. There’s just a lot that’s different.

People are here and they never force me to do anything that you don’t want to do.
