I Made it on the News!

Earlier this month, some Iowa State students studying abroad in China were in the news! Our school hosted a small cultural activity about the Chinese Tomb-Sweeping day.

We recited a poem related to the festival and I was interviewed at the very end.  I said I think Chinese poetry is very hard to understand because the Chinese characters can have lots of different meanings (especially in poetry!), and as a result, each poem can contain a lot of meaning/significance.  Also that the school should organize some more cultural activities!

Check out the original video here, skip to 1:30 for the ISU students

Bonus: I also appeared in an add for a Chinese news app!
