Foreign Exchange Program
I had the pleasure of being the special guest for a group of children visiting from China. I learned so much about their culture and I was very inspired by there dedication to their education. All of them were from Beijing and attended the Experimental High School attached to BNU (Beijing Normal University). Their culture is very different from ours. They were very interested in our families and how we all interact. They asked many questions about the beauty pageant. I learned that much of their time is spent focused on school work. Many of them attend school 10 hours a day. They eat lunch at the school, come home for dinner, and return to school in the evening. It was an honor to meet you Jerry, Scott, Rose, Sherry, Ivy, Elaine, and everyone else. I wish you all safe travels and all the success in your future endeavors.
