I went to Evansville and Boston during the summer program in 2016. I visited many famous universities, experienced the hospitality of the host family, got to know many good friends. It was such a wonderful trip! I experienced American life and culture in-depth. It changed my way to learn and live a life as well. I only learned from books before, but now I know experience is the best teacher. You couldn’t learn everything from books.

Spring 2016 Multimedia & NGO Program Participant

I included my shadowing experience in Walmart Headquarters in my CV. Many HRs were very interested and asked the details about my shadowing. I also put it in my personal statement. It helped me to get my offer.

Summer 2017 Business Program Participant

My bachelor’s degree was in English. I have been interested in art all the time. When I applied to study abroad, I put the program experience in my CV. The interviewer of Pratt Institute was impressed by my shadowing experience. I chose to continue my study in New York University and major in performing arts management.

This exchange program helped me to understand art organization, TV media and local culture in the US, which prepared me for my further education there.

I live and study in New York now. I visited my host family earlier this year. We became friends and keep in touch with each other since they hosted me in 2017 summer program

Summer 2017 Multimedia Program Participant

The program has huge influence on how I see things. For example, my host mom is aged, But she loves her life, her family and herself like a young girl. I also discussed with my host dad some deep life topics, because aging and death was my biggest fear. Their lives reminded me of a sentence: “Don’t worry about getting old, because you will be cute when you are old.” By a famous translator in China. Therefore, the trip to the US brought me warmth and strength to face the problems that I fear.

Americans treat their families more directly than Chinese do. Americans prefer to show love and gratitude to their loved ones at any time. After I returned to China, I’d also use words and hugs to express my love for my loved ones apart from expressing love with actions. My family are feeling good about being valued and loved in each of these lovely moments.

At work, I learned to communicate confidently with people around. Different from Chinese humility, Americans are characterized by their self-confidence. After I returned to work in China, I tried to face my brand new job and new colleagues with confidence.  As my self-confidence helps give me a feeling of success, my colleagues around me would also continue to support and help me. In this way, the unknown of the future doesn't seem to me that much anymore!
